The #8 UNC Tar Heels won at College Park for the first time since 2003 and improved to 7-2 with a nice come from behind win over the Terps at College Park.   The vocal crowd of 3,176 fans and a national television audience on ESPN made for a big game feel for an early season game.  The field at Byrd stadium is curved and makes for some careful planning on where you shoot.  It really cuts the available filed with my 300mm lens to about a quarter of most fields.   Must be because Byrd is a football first field.

Fun with Tilt Shift Lens

Tried playing with a Canon 24 Tilt Shift lens over the weekend, I guess you can always get the same effect with some Photoshop editing, but it is always better to get the result straight out of the camera.

Inside Lacrosse Face-Off Classic

Just finished shooting the Inside Lacrosse Face-Off Classic at M and T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.  This event is usually the start of the lacrosse season for me.   I have shot this event for several years and this event is first class, IL, ESPN and the promoters do a great job of making this event a run great each year.   Great weather, great press box and lunch spread at MandT.

Pride Captain wins first ever POTY award

I have been working with the Washington Pride hockey team for the past 3 years and it was good to see that the Pride Captain Haley Skarupa has been selected as the JWHL's Player of the Year.  Great to see a Maryland player getting this award and recognition against the best players from across the US and Canada.

See the rest of my Washington Pride game photos here.

No. 7 Georgetown Women’s Lacrosse Season Opener vs. No. 2 Northwestern

Georgetown stayed closed to Northwestern for the first half and then the stronger NW team pulled ahead for a 24-15 win in front of a good crowd at the Georgetown University Multi-Purpose Field. Great weather and good light, just wish they would finish the construction at the end of the field, not a great background and it seems like they have been working on this for years.
