"A job well done"

My day Job often entails, leaving my wonderful desk with the 2 20" apple cinema screens, and the G5 and going out (Thank God) to cover events. :-)

That's actually how I started taking pictures, I simply got fed up of seeing and laying out other photographers images… after all, I said to myself, "Skee, you can't do any worse!"

My church, gets involved in many community-centric projects. One of these is called the New Hope Community project. Here having set up a football coaching academy, teaching every week atleast 60 young energy filled kids, the coaches had just been awarded coaching certificates from the English football association.

If the guy with the black leather coat and cap looks familiar, he should, apart from playing for Tottenham Hotspurs and England in the late 80's – 90's. He has become a household face on Tv presenting football. Any guesses?

On to my technique:

The day was dull and cold! It was getting dark too. :-(
I use a technique quite common with professional photojournalists, involving an off camera flash gun. ( I won't talk too much about it here, I'll leave that to someone who knows what he's talking about ;-) )

For those interested in this technique, check out work of Neil Turner, aka dg28 ( Digital guru 28) www.dg28.com, check out heis gallery too. Impressive stuff!

A good tip I tell most peeps going into this area of photography, is to, keep your eyes wide open (It really helps)

The picture is good or not from the moment it was caught in the camera. -Henri Cartier-Bresson, "The Camera - LIFE Library of Photography" , page: 214

I'm back tomorrow…aren't you? Smile, it's Friday peeps :-D, Actually Good friday!

In my early photog days I was always trying to figure out what made shots look like this. Nathaniel Welch's book Spring Broke has a lot of pictures in this style as well. As I learned more I figured out it was flash, but I'm glad you gave the link to learn even more.

I like this picture and only took my american brain 3 paragraphs to figure out you were talking about football, not football wink
I likey, to tell the truth did not expect such a shot from you. Threw me for a six smile As has been said, different and very very nice.

I like to see guys throwing diff images into the mix. But I have a burning question for the Skee;

"IS LV EVER GOING TO SEE A LANDSCAPE IMAGE FROM MR SKEE?"

The answer they say is out there?

Would love to see and read your take on landscapese Lord Yoda.
