My first polo match 'shoot'

This was taken at the Darlington Polo Grounds in Darlington, PA. The light was fading fast and the dust was heavy. Creating a great photo opportunity.

I have many other images from the match on my web site.

It was very fun and an enjoyable time. I shot the match with a friend who invited me along and I am glad I went. Another very interesting item about the event is the fact I live within a few miles from the polo grounds but never new they existed. We travel all around the earth and at times miss tremendous photo opportunities in our backyard.

The Moment it clicks by Joe McNally

I recently finished an amazing book on photography by Joe McNally.

The book covers the career of Joe McNally and he describes how he obtained all the photos in the book. Open the book anywhere and you will see an amazing photo on the right hand page and on the left hand page is a description how he obtained the shot. Joe includes secrets and techniques concerning lighting and insider tips to capture amazing photos. This book is for beginner and advanced shooter.

Even if you are not interested in learning how he captured the shots, the photos are worth the price of admission. The book is like a workshop in print.
