Just like shooting a football game..kind of

I was asked to join a friend to photograph the eagles that meet along the Susquehanna river this time each year.   Why not, something I have never done before and always in for trying to capture something new.   Having never photographed birds in flight, I thought I would approach like a football game.  Fast shutter speed and not really knowing the next play.  

Must have been 100+ other photogs with the same idea.  I was definitely not prepared and not the right gear.   Some of the other photographers were serious about their nature photography and it showed with their gear.   My monopod set-up worked OK, and had to make the best with what I have (I guess the best set-up is a Gimbal mount for the long lens).  

For the most part the eagles were not active this day but I was able to get a few.   Looking forward to going again next year.

New PowerPlay Photography Site v2.0

I just finished the new PowerPlay Photography site upgrade.  The old site was based on Shutterfly Pro and after 10 years it was time for an upgrade (since Shutterfly canceled their Pro service program).   Still needs a few fine tuning, but it is up and working.

The St Stephens and St Agnes High School annual Spring Flight lacrosse tournament brings the best girls teams from around the country each April.  This tournament has become a regular for my spring schedule and I look forward to the event each year.   Below are a few samples from my day in Alexandria at SSSAS.

Heartbreaker in College Pak

Saturday in College Park was by far the most entertaining lacrosse game in sometime.   # 6 Maryland was down big most of the game and charged back to tie with 26 seconds remaining only to lose in OT.   It was great to see the joy from the Nova bench.  Complete game recap from Inside Lacrosse posted here.

First Game of the New Season

Trying out a new game-day set-up with a Pelican hard case.  This case is smaller than my rolling bag set-up but also allows the storage of my 300 2.8 lens.  A few sample from the Georgetown vs Towson game today.
