Arm Chair Nature Photography

I put my recently purchased 15 foot USB cable to work this morning. I set up this simple rig and connected the cable to my iMac, launched a tethered session in Lightroom and went back to my work. Then whenever I heard the high-pitched squeak of a hungry hummer, without even looking out the window, I hit command-tab to switch to Lightroom and remotely triggered the camera as fast as possible. Here is the very first shot!

Here’s the third shot.

Shootin' the bird from my office chair.

Nikon’s fabulous lighting system allowed me to shoot these at 1/5000 of a second and still use flash. The only problem is that there seems to be a tiny pre-flash, and these hummers are FAST! Often they are well into skeedaddle mode even before the shutter trips.

But then, once in a while this happens.

Beautiful, isn't he? Kelly named him Scarface.
You lookin' at me?

Pickup Soccer

I volunteered to create a simple invitation to a company soccer match. Of course, with thedude, results are never going to be “simple”.

Kelly Likes This One Best

thedude & vodka make a cheerful combination!

She thinks this is my most natural smile, and I agree, but I thought the glass of Ketel One might be a bit too much for my page, so I chose a shot with a camera – naturally!

Many, many thanks to the awesome Steve Fossum for the fantastic shots. I did not think that having my portrait taken could be so much fun!
