Interesting lighting

As a documentary photographer, sometimes I end up making photographs in some very unusual lighting. Last Saturday night during the rail jam at Mission Ridge was one example. The organizers had the normal lights that are set up for skiing on the course but they also brought in two portable lighting units to intensify the light. I appreciated the extra light "volume" but it made for some difficult situations. I had to be careful of what I was shooting and from where.

The count

I covered the crowd of Town Toyota Center supporters who gathered for a photograph on the arena ice Monday night.

Photos of a blowout

I went to Entiat last night to photograph the girls game with Warden, specifically to make some pictures of Entiat's star player, Mandy Southard. It's an odd gym with the baseline on one side so shallow I can't stand, let alone sit there to take photographs and on the other, there is almost too much room. I ended up shooting pictures from the stands in the first half before moving to the larger baseline at court level. How I do like to be low, shooting at the player's eye level.

I can't believe we are halfway through January already! Some time back I put together a photo gallery of what I think was my best work of 2011 - here's a link to that.
