Black and White Ball, Laredo Civic Center, November 14, 2015 http://www.sullysphotos.com/blog/2015/11/black-and-white-ball-laredo-civic-center-november-14-2015 Black and White Ball

November 14, 2015

     Ok, well it's been a long time since I posted something on my blog.  I am going to make an effort to post here more often.  I moved away from this blog as a result from joining Instagram: @sullysphotos and FaceBook:  Sully's Photos.  I tried using my personal profile on FB, which is private, and I created a public Fan page (fan page lol--their name not mine) but it was not a user friendly system for what I wanted to do so I deleted it and my personal page (which I never really used anyway) and I opened a public profile just for Sully's Photos.  Instagram is super easy to use, even sharing with FB, and is an excellent and quick way of showcasing shots from photo shoots and events.

     So I have uploaded a few images from last nights Black and White Ball and will be uploading more soon.  The images are for sale and I offer hundreds of products right here in my web site.  Just select and image, click Buy, and you will be guided through product options and see pricing.  All images purchased (if they haven't already been edited) will be edited prior to order fulfillment.

     Enjoy,

     ~sully

United High School Larriettes http://www.sullysphotos.com/blog/2015/3/united-high-school-larriettes This is the Larriettes last dance of the MA Championships--pom routine.  Filmed in 1080p HD with the Canon 5d Mark II and Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM IS II.

Note:  there is a rather shaky spot in here when a overly-ambitious fan starts waving a large prop around right in front of my camera :/  So I had to stand up and hop the camera up really high to get the annoying prop out of the frame.

Super Moon last night Earth's moon was in it's nearest orbit to earth and it looked rather large and beautiful to the naked eye.  However, if you had the luxury of looking at it through binoculars or even better a telescope then you had a most awesome view of the surface of our moon.

I shot this with a Canon 5D MKII, a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II with a 2X Extender, 400mm at 1000th of a second, ISO 100, f/5.7 on a tripod, of course, with a two second self timer.

Not the best moon image but the best I can do with the equipment I have.

I really like this one but the poster below is really cool also.  The thin colorful lines are from an overlay with a crazy blending mode--I think it turned out really awesome!!!  This collage was made from nine individual photos.

Tunnel Shoot http://www.sullysphotos.com/blog/2014/3/tunnel-shoot Dance shoot in a tunnel with gelled strobes.  Ballerina pose in a tutu.  Canon strobists.First AttemptI recently discovered this large tunnel in Laredo and since it is a new tunnel it has yet to be occupied by bats--yes bats!! For those of you who have not been in any tunnels here they are overrun by bats and the stench of guano is horrific! This is just one of many dance shoots that I have recently done in an attempt to emulate another photographer who I feel is a very talented dance photographer. This was also my first attempt at using gels on my strobes. I think it went rather well. This shot was with a blue gelled Canon 580 EXII behind the dancer and a Canon 430 EXII camera left as a main light. My second attempt was even better. Model: Andrea Iglesias

The image below is my second attempt at the blue gelled tunnel shoot was much better as I used a larger strobe (Einstein 640 by Paul C. Buff) behind the dancer and positioned it farther down the tunnel in order to light more of the tunnel.  Next time I think I will move it even farther down the tunnel.  I used a snooted Canon 580EXII camera left to light the subject.  I needed a larger snoot opening or repositioning of the 580 in order to light the entire subject.  You can barely see, on the wall to the right of the subject some whitening of the wall from the 580!

Overall, I am very pleased with the results.

Next time I want to add water on the floor so when the dancer jumps the water sprays!!

Quick photoshop edit from a studio shoot a couple days ago.  The background is a Wikipedia file, unknown photographer, it is the Shorncliffe Pier, England.  The dancer is the beautifully talented Amy.  A real pleasure to work with! 

I have neglected my blog due to the ease of posting and popularity of Instagram and FB, but I am going to make an attempt to add to it more often.

Sometimes the path forward seems daunting....however, I see challenge, adventure, thrill, exploration of possibilities.

The Algodones Dunes, California is the only erg in the United States.  Many movies have been shot here, the military has done desert warfare training here as well.  It is quite beautiful and a major attraction for recreational vehicle enthusiasts, as many as 150,000 visitors can arrive on a single winter weekend to play.

I love smartphone apps!!  They are so easy and quick to use.  This is the first time I have ever uploaded a photo to my computer, or the web for that matter, that was edited--or should I say filtered with smartphone apps.  The resolution is not he greatest but I am happy with the results.

I love fashion photography, maternity photography, portraiture, and shoots that are different or challenging.  I learn something new every time I have a shoot, I meet new and interesting people, I just love it!

The shot with the worst exposure was the best shot of the group photos that I took--as the faces of the individuals were all looking at the camera in this one shot.  Next time I ask all the parents to leave the area and only the coach stays lol--at this shoot there were too many distractions and someone in almost every shot was looking elsewhere.

It was never my intention do become a sports photographer--not that these are samples of action shots but I have done a few now and everyone seems to love my posters.  I have been learning a lot while doing these team shoots.  I will probably be revisiting my rates for these posters though as they can be quite time consuming.
