Championship Monday

Congratulations to the University of Virginia lacrosse team for winning D-1 National Championship. UVA are now 5-4 in NCAA Tournament championship games, and is this fourth for Cavalier head coach Dom Starsia. Thanks to a game strategy that worked well against the Terrapins, the game was very low-scoring and the first quarter was the lowest scoring first quarter in NCAA Division I Championship game history.

I had trouble finding a rhythm to the game in the first half, the but second half worked better for me. Overall I was happy with the game photos and here are a few samples from the game.

NCAA Lacrosse Semi-Finals Game 2

The Maryland vs Duke game had a much different feel with the larger home-team crowd getting into every hit, shot and save.   This Maryland team can hit and it looks like Duke just was not ready for what the Terrapins had in store.   Should be a good game on Monday with UVA vs UMD and full stadium.    

NCAA Lacrosse Semi-Finals Game 1

Not much of a game after UVA pulled out to a big lead and I was struggling all day to get in the grove of the game.  First my main camera (Canon Mark III) broke (again) and I had change my set-up during the game and then UVA played keep-away the second half and the action was minimal.   Good that I had my old reliable Mark II as a back-up.   Here are a few samples from the game and good luck UVA on Monday in the Championship game.

Flash Workshop in DC

I spent the day with Jeff Green and Canon attending a lighting workshop in DC.   Canon did a great job with this workshop and I really enjoyed having all the toys available and being able to try some different techniques and ideas.   Hope you enjoy some of my samples.
