Photog “fun”…

I’m sure the “moment” meant more to Cat and I than it ever will to anyone else… Here’s two photos, one taken by myself, one taken by Cat… we were standing shooting together tonight… Cat’s background and “style” has been groomed by years of photojournalistic shooting… for what it’s worth, take a close look at these two photos… they really show the difference in our “styles”.  Cat is tuned into the whole scene, the umpire’s face is clearly seen, you can see the play (unfortunately the 3rd baseman didn’t make the play…), you can see the result, the story is told… vs. mine… I’m focused on the kid trying to make the play….  We were reviewing these on the field and were pretty shocked how close the two shots are to each other in timing…  I hadn’t noticed the “focus” difference until I got them home and looked closer at them.  Great stuff!!

I guess you can say that being a “photographer” has as many different “meanings” as there are Photographers!

The tournament continues…

Come on out this weekend and enjoy the All Star Tournaments!!  The 11-12 year olds start up Saturday… maybe your team will make it to the World Series!!

See you out there!!

I’m feeling much better… tired, but feeling better, was able to run for the first time tonight after surgery… for those that have seen me running around the fields before… a lot of ground to cover tomorrow!!

I want to give a big thank you to Cat Allison of Nevada Photo Source for helping me these past few days, I had a great time shooting with you!!  Thank YOU!!

All Star Action, Carson City, NV

Hello all!

Last night started the Nevada District 1 Little League All Star Tournament at Governor’s Field in Carson City, NV.  Come on out to see the great baseball being played; three age levels, four fields, a lot of baseball!!

I’m still on the mend but feeling much better, not 100% yet but close.

Cat Allison of Nevada Photo Source (most of you know her from the Nevada Appeal…) is out helping out for a few nights.  You all know the great work she does… stop by and see what we can create for you!

Here’s a shot from last night’s action.  Be sure to watch our Facebook page (search for instaimage) and follow us on Twitter… you just might find some worthwhile discounts if you catch me in a “giving” mood!  🙂

Baseball and… Snow?

Mother Nature… are you kidding me!

I was supposed to shoot the Carson JV Baseball team and deliver Carson Varsity Posters tonight… but I woke up to 6 inches of SNOW on the ground!!!  Supposed to be 70 degrees by Saturday.  Ahhhhhh, Spring time in Northern Nevada!  Still waiting to hear if the games tonight are cancelled….

High School Baseball Action!

I LOVE baseball season and it’s finally here!!!

I’m going to get a jump on the action shots for the Carson Baseball team during their game on Friday Morning (March 12th).

I’ll be out at the three Carson v. Douglas games on March 18th (3:45 at Carson) and March 20th (11:00 & 1:30 at Douglas).

I’m working on some very cool collage posters this year for the teams.  I’ll post them here when I get them finished.  They will be for sale and 30% of the proceeds from the sale of these posters will go back to the teams as a donation!!
