Sports Portraits – A Summer Challenge Revisited

Kent Island Basketball

So you may recall, I set myself up with a Summer Challenge last year (back in the days when there was sun and warmth…). It was all about learning a new technique, trying some new software and practicing a new editing style. In the process the Sports Portrait was born! I was SO excited about the whole process that I convinced the powers that be for the Kent Island Football Team to allow me to photograph all of the seniors on the team and create these awesome portraits. We totally did it on the sly too – none of the players, coaches or parents knew exactly what we were up to. On senior night my cohort in deviousness and I hung all the senior players’ sports portraits by the entrance gate. They were a HUGE hit. I was like a little

Madeleine – 2014 Senior

Madeleine-10X20-STORYBOARDS

Sometimes you just fall in love with an image and know it the moment the shutter clicks. This session had magic to it from the moment we started. I was so, so excited to get home and edit – I knew I had something special. To make it even better – she’s my canoe partner’s granddaughter!   I put together a short video of the entire session – check it out!

Summer Challenge

composite1

Every year I tell myself I’m going to make it a priority to learn a new technique, try some new software, practice a new editing style, etc… And year after year it slips by – to busy, not enough time, I’ll do it next month. Well last week I buckled down. This was ON!! I scoured the web, watched some tutorials and spent lots of lots of time with my camera and computer. And voila –  a HDR Sports Portrait! I’m now more than a little sleep deprived and totally in love with this new process! Already working on ideas for the next one.

Bring On Some Competition – 2013 Hurricane Bucs!!

A few weeks ago the manager for the Hurricane Bucs came up to me and asked if I’d be interested in photographing the team. Now let’s step back for a moment.  Me: the tomboy who was the only girl on the baseball team for two years, got her first shiner by catching the ball with her eye instead of her glove (the second came from a boy in a pick up football game who well… didn’t like the fact I tackled him… shhhh don’t tell mom!!) and who’s father does a whole pitchers and catchers ritual every February. HECK YEAH!! I showed up with my game face on and ready to roll around in the dirt. Boy did I roll around in the dirt! The looks on the girls faces when I first laid down, full out in the dirt,

Vipers Baseball

Chase SB1 copy

In honor of the Orioles Pitchers and Catchers reporting in 20 days, I thought I’d share a few images from a baseball session last year. A friend of mine called and said his son’s travel team, The Vipers, were playing their arch rivals at a local park and could I come photograph it for them. Heck yeah! Growing up I was the only girl on the baseball team two years running! We may or may not have only won one game in two years… Details, details!! Still not much can beat sitting in the stands on a warm afternoon and watching some baseball!   And now a little color for you!
