    Took a couple shots that I like to always do as our traditional photo once we get our camp site all setup.
    Just usually always my legs stretched out while sitting at what I make my favorite spot at camp.

    This time I thought I'd include the scene along with the kids.
    Here is also what I thought was a cute one of my youngest.

    One of the things I do for a creative recharge, or just to see things differently, is to street shoot. Sometimes I'll take the big Canon but most times I do this with film. Either an old Canon F1 or my favorite camera of all time, the Hasselblad 500cm. When I'm street shooting, I find the Hassy to be a conversation starter and not off putting. Most people have no idea what it is.

    A couple of weeks ago, I was at the zoo with my wife and youngest daughter. Our older two have been gone all summer and we were looking for something to do. I grabbed the Hassy and two rolls of HP5. Piper wanted to shoot too so she got the F1 and a random roll of 35mm that I grabbed out of the fridge.

    The Hassy is a camera that knows no age. The pictures that come out of it now are just as sharp as they were 40 years ago and as they will be 40 years from now. I need to use it more often.

    Thought I'd share a few images.

    For the past week, my youngest has been over at the Wings Museum for an aviation/space camp. Super cool and we hadn't really ever been over there even though it's literally 2 minutes from our house. Today being the last day, they let us come over and wander the hanger for a couple of hours for a kind of open house. Reminded me of all the air shows I went to as a kid. The best one being out at El Centro. The Angels did stuff out there that I've never seen anywhere else. Needless to say, I was super stoked to walk in and see a B1 looming over everything...

    Then, hiding in the back corner, was this masterpiece.

    Go check out http://www.keh.com. Best used gear on the market. I pretty much buy everything from them.

    The answer to this really depends on what sports. Indoors? Outdoors? Small t-ball field or a full size soccer field? What's not breaking the bank?

    Right now on KEH, these would be worth grabbing...

    Canon 35-350, $1079
    Canon 70-200 2.8L IS $1035-1429
    Canon 70-300 4-5.6L IS $999-1079
    Canon 100-400 4.5-5.6L IS $822-1035
    Canon 70-200 4L IS $698-849
    Canon 70-300 4-5.6 IS II $432
    Canon 70-300 4-5.6 IS USM $228-289
    Canon 100-300 4-5.6 USM $84-126

    Constant apertures are better then variable ones. L glass is better then non-L. You want to get the best glass you can afford. The camera body is nothing more than a light proof box. Image quality is dictated by the glass, not the body.

    The best bang for your buck in that list would be the 70-200 f/4 L IS. All of the lenses in that list are decent. Some will require more work to get the shot than others.

    Happy to answer more questions if you have them.

    It'll mainly be outside with Football. I saw some at $1500 and was like ummm..that's a lot! HAHA
    I am a totally amateur photographer. Since a coaching slot was not available, I need to occupy my time other than sitting in the stands.

    This past week had me in Battle Creek, MI and Charlotte, NC. For those that don't know, Battle Creek is home to the company that gave birth to Tony the Tiger.

    A few images from Battle Creek.

    It was my first time in Charlotte and I only had one afternoon/evening to wander around. Lots of juxtapositions and filled with many physically beautiful people. Not sure why that caught me off guard but it did. I found more things to photograph than in Battle Creek. Partly demographics. Partly size. There is something about small towns that intrigues me but to find a story would require more than the couple of days I usually have in a place.

    The trick is learning to see in black & white and figuring out what to meter for to get a good b&w. Once you do that, you'll start understanding what certain colors and tones will do. If you have an old film camera lying around, burn a few rolls, try some filters (red, yellow, green) and see what happens. Then you take that and apply in Lightroom.

    Contrast in post is my Achilles heel. I always go too far one way or the other. :)

    Practice. Patience. Monitor calibration.

    Instead of the contrast slider, start using the tone curve and the HSL sliders. You can be way more subtle and the HSL sliders mimic what a colored filter would have done for film.

    The first this you need to learn is a good technique with lighting and angles. If taking outdoor shots, the best time is overcast so light is diffused and not harsh. People like the golden hours as well. Once you learn the basic techniques, even smartphones can produce decent results. Most of all, have fun doing it.

    All these were taken with older iPhones and Galaxy phones over the years.

    Thanks! All had some sort of post processing done one way or another to get the affect I wanted but all post processing was done on the smartphone.

    Milwaukee is always dreary, that's why I stay up here ;-)

    I'm even farther north. I'm in the middle of the potato fields :) Once you get north of highway 64 it's much, much better here.(sorry to all the readers below 64, it's just more relaxed up here :thumbsup:)

    I have an old friend in Marquette. He loves it up there. Pretty sure he won't leave until he's dead. Yoopers are a different breed though. :cheers:

    Truth!
    The real Yoopers are "unique". In a good way!

    Just got my new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with dual cam. It provides pretty good bokeh and detail for a smartphone cam.8df942ff8ace6362c48704b79559189f_531756cc6a929fd9e35b0a81cd8d0ff0d24eaafe.jpg
