Photo of the Day
I released this shot a couple of nights ago on my Facebook page, but thought that I would do a write up for it on here as well. I took this shot when we were in California earlier in the year. The Midtown Maulies were facing the Roseville TrainWreckers in a bout. Since we had a skater with us it just made sense to check the bout out. I took my 50mm lens to the suicide seats for a short time to get some shots. I didn’t shoot long, but looking back at my shots from that day I wish that I had shot a little longer. I liked a lot of what I did that night. In this shot Colt 45 was out front looking to score some points. Every team has a jammer that is the star, and she seemed to be the star that night.
The shots from this bout really showed me what the 300 preset from Matt Kloskowski could do. The red of the Maulies jerseys really looked good with the rest of the picture desaturated. From here I came up with the idea of making my own preset for the Lafayette Brawlin’ Dolls that I have called LBD naturally. I thought that I should post a shot here to show where the idea came from, and from there where I took it.
Kelby Worldwide Photowalk
Here is that part of the post where I talk about the photowalk that I am leading on campus after the Wisconsin game in October. The date is October 13th to be exact, and the walk will start at 4 o’clock est at the Neil Armstrong Statue in front of the Armstrong Hall of Engineering. Over 1,000 photowalks are planned around the world. If you are not near West Lafayette then you kind find a walk near you on the Kelby site. Sign up now to be part of this event. Nearly 17,000 walkers have already signed up so far. Activity has picked up a bit on the Purdue sites even with the short time being posted. You don’t have to be a pro (I am far from it) to attend. Any kind of camera is welcome as well. Here are a few links to the various sites which promote the event. If you want to sign up you should do so on the Kelby site in order to be eligible for the prizes though.
