Ugly


Avery helped me with a shoot and then she took some shots of me making faces and then we did a few together. She’s really scary here…I wonder who she gets that from…

Shadow=Black, Highlight=White





Just a few minutes before Survivor...thought I'd throw these up...

Silly Team

One of my favorite things about doing sports photos is doing a silly shot. Some teams don't really understand the concept and kind of give me a blank stare, and some teams cross their eyes and stick out their tongues. This team I had the other day had me crackin up.

Keep Smiling!!



Avery cracks me up. She'll keep smiling for the photo even when she's breaking her brother's neck. And Alec has so much anger, like a fat lady on a hover-round at the grocery store spotting the coupon beans on the upper shelf.

Anyway, I'd better watch what I post or I'll get flagged for youth violence as well as crude humor.

What's in a name

From what I understand, some folks from Juneau may be tuning in to this blog this week (maybe, and they’ll probably fall asleep reading this and end up ripping their modems out so they can say “sorry, just couldn’t get a good connection” and not have to check back) and anyway, they don’t know that the Angie who posts comments is NOT my sister from Arizona, it’s our friends from church (well they don’t live at church and actually the church is the people not a building so how could they anyway…what am I talking about). Some of the comments you may or may not dare to read may or may not make more sense if you know that distinction.
And now for something completely different and horribly inappropriate for a family blog like this and yet I really feel like I have no choice but to show the following…






Adam and I were talking about color. Well, I was anyway, and how black and white photography is a little too easy and color is actually more difficult because people deal with expectations of what they think reality should look like in a photograph. With black and white images, you already have a deal with the viewer where they understand and agree to throw the notion of reality out the window a bit since we live in a world of color and therefore any black and white image is going to be an artistic escape from reality. With color images, if you want to adjust color for artistic reasons, people frown and wonder if something went wrong. Also you can have an image that is incredibly well composed, well planned and well exposed but color can kill or make the image. Black and white images (to me) are, well, easier than color. That doesn’t make them less cool but they don’t wow me as much as an amazing color image.
