Floorcam outtake v.2

060222ukolemisssds296

Here’s another outtake from the floor cam – these from the Ole Miss/UK game on Feb. 22. That’s UK’s Randolph Morris watching Todd Abernethy hit the deck (and nearly my camera) after a bit of action under the basket.

The great thing about the floor cam, or any remote camera, is that since it is fired remotely (with a foot switch in this case), it allows me to shoot with two cameras at the same time. Check the next two photos of Brandon Stockton getting stuffed by Tubby’s boy Brian Smith. You may also be able to tell the difference in the quality of the cameras used. Notice the skin tones and shadow detail. The floor cam, which rests on the floor at my feet, is a Canon 1D with a 17-35mm f2.8 lens. The hand held camera is a newer Canon 1D MkII with a 24-70mm f2.8 lens. More photos from the game can be seen at heraldleaderphoto.com.

Speeding on the lake

Finding an enterprise photo on a lake in the middle of winter is unusual, but the mild weather this week gave me such an opportunity. While flying over Lake Cumberland, on the way to the Wolf Creek Dam for an assignment, I spotted this boat gliding through the glistening water. The photo was shot out the open window of a Cessna 182 with a Canon EOS 1D Mark II camera, ISO 200, 1/5000 at f5.6. Charles Bertram.

Hair and Cheese

I call this entry Hair and Cheese because Naomi Judd’s hair kept me from getting anything remotely candid, so I had to settle for a looking-at-the-camera photo (which they did on their own) as if they are saying “cheese”. You hate to settle for something so straightforward, but in this case, the photo has to be all about recognizing the celebrities (in this case, Naomi of The Judds country music duo, and Dottie Rambo, right, “The Queen of Gospel Music”, who were inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame at Lexington Center Feb. 23). — Dave Perry
Nikon D-100, 1/60th sec., f4, 17mm, -1 flash compensation, 800 ISO.

Culture Shock

Adjusting to life in the United States has been one new experience after another for Waghdan Aljayashee, and her grandmother, Haseeba Zaghairon. As a former Anthropology student, I have found it interesting to observe their transition. Most of the time the two Iraqi natives have embraced our culture with enthusiasm. But in this waiting room at Shriners Hospital in Cincinnati, Haseeba retreated to her own custom of sitting on the floor.

Watch for the next installment of Waghdan’s story to be published soon in the Herald-Leader.

Scourge of Lexington?

No. Not of Lexington, but rather the Scourge of the Sea, a Lexington band who recently signed with Alias Records. The guys needed some promo shots so we visited a few vacant houses around downtown and made a few photos! Love the texture of that old door!
