A collection of some frames I shot last night. Swim meets are death when it comes to identifying people in your shots, so to help keep track of where I'm at later when I go through my take, I shoot frames between races and write down what it was I shot on my printout of all the races and names so that I have reference points along the way. These shots are unconscious in the sense that, I don't think of making a picture, I just point my camera at something I can name (like "white flag," or "water"), sometimes looking through the viewfinder sometimes not, pull the trigger, and hope I can match the frame up with what I wrote down. Click on it to see it bigger.

got a little obsessed with the slow shutter speed ... should have turned the iso down though ... things can work out all right at 1600, right?

Parking Lots and Prairie Home Companion

what to do when a reporter sends you somewhere three hours before it begins? just park, kick back and thank your lucky stars it's Saturday and Garrison wants to tell you the latest news from Lake Wobegon...
