Still working on doing team photos and upping my off camera lighting skills.  The main gym at North Mason has good light but very little room to work.  It makes up for lack of room by having a balcony I can shoot from.

Sold one of my D7100, would like to get a second D500, but can't yet justify it.

Got Godox speedlights, no more messing with up to 12 AA batteries at a time.

Some front page photos

I've been getting on the front page a lot lately.  For the polar plunge I got out my old work horse Nikon D90 again.  My D90 has over 96,000 shutter actuations now and is still going strong.  The D90 got splashed a little bit but no big deal.  My 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 is the lens of choice for the job.  The lens is not as sharp as I would like, but it gets the job done and I don't have to worry about breaking it too much at it's pricepoint.

3A Football State Championship Tacoma Dome

Shot from the hip with a D7100, it can focus in this light even when
shot from the hip.

Football Shelton at North Thurston

As the season progresses I find myself getting into a nice groove.  Only one more home game left though.  These pictures were taken at South Sound Stadium.  SSS is  dark stadium with flickering lights, it might be darker than Shelton but at  least the light is uniform, no black holes other than in the end zones.
