Doug, Rusty, Jeff, Wit and I got together for some fun…
Another visit to the Red Rocks! This time against BYU. I tried the techniques I picked up from last time, like shutter faster than 1/350, Hi Speed Shutter, F/2.8, etc. This time I took nearly 2,200 pictures, and only about 10 were throw aways. Much better. I am only posting a small selection of the 2,200 pictures, thankfully, I hear you say.
This is what I can see from my house, but of course, I am using a 70-200mm with a 2x Teleconverter, plus the camera is a 1.6x crop, so I can actually photograph more than the eye can see…
My daughter and I took a walk in Layton Park, right after it snowed. We thought we’d see what photos we could take. There are some Infrared ones in there too, and watch out for the flying duck.
Some pictures may look the same, this is because I took a normal picture, then Infrared, and then played with the Infrared. So it is intentional that some look like duplicates.
So, Fitz invited me to go see the Red Rocks against Utah State. It was my first time to try to photograph sports like this, and learned a lot. Firstly, RAW, and shutter speed less than 350 just doesn’t cut it. Next time I will do it differently. Also High Speed Shutter would have been a good idea. Well from this small sample of my photos you can get the general idea.
Some kids we saw skiing. I was very impressed. Can’t ski myself, but these kids were cool. This is one of the locations that the 2002 Winter Olympics took place. The luge, and other events were done here.
