Pool in Toronto

Did some sightseeing north of the border in Toronto, Canada. As it would seem, bars there are similar to those in the US. Go figure.

Different looks

I know there's been a lot of basketball, but hey it is still March and these aren't typical basketball photos.

First up is Missouri head coach Mike Anderson. He and his coaching staff were going over the game stats after losing to West Virginia in the tournament. This locker room shot didn't get published, but I think it is worth a blog post.

Secondly, we have the result of looking for that other type of shot. I wouldn't say it is entirely successful, but there is always next time. Also, I should point out this was during pregame warm-ups, so nothing spectacular was happening. They were practicing and so was I.

Had (a lot) of time to kill after the Mizzou practice today and found myself out on the floor when the Florida State Seminoles took the court. I chose black and white because, well, because I can.

Mizzou and the NCAA Tournament In 2010

Well I am fortunate enough to be back covering the Missouri Tigers in the NCAA tournament again. They will take on the Clemson Tigers Friday, March 19, at 1:45pm. The game will take place in the HSBC Arena in Buffalo, New York. Today there was a press conference and media practice, in which they ran through simple drills. Here are a few shots from the practice. Nothing special really, just some that I enjoy looking at.

An engagement

And he waits.

And he asks. She accepts.

Rock Bridge State Park

The above photo is a composite of two photos. They were of the exact same image and taken within milliseconds of one another, but exposed differently. This was done so that both the sky and the ground would be exposed as desired. The technique of combining multiple photos to display a higher range of captured light is called, HDR, or High Dynamic Range.

The spiderwebs are what caught my eye for this photo. A simple picture, but this took a bit of time to do. Camera on tripod, check. External flash connected to camera via off camera flash cord, check. Flash hanging from tree branch via gorilla tripod, check. After all that, it was a matter of timing as the wind was blowing the nearly four foot blade of grass back and forth. The sunset added a nice touch.
