30F Outside and thinking Softball and Baseball Already

After nighttime football and indoor basketball it was nice to shoot some early season softball and baseball.  The Boerne High School baseball team was having tryouts and the softball team was having a fund raiser.

The fund raiser included a Parents vs Players game that I knew would offer some "interesting" images and the weather was great, if you didn't mind a 40F chill factor.

Southwest Lights Photo Workshop

With a lot of hard work Jason Abbot rescued one of the top Canadian portrait photographers, Warne Noyce, from the central Canadian plains and with participants from as far away as California nad Nova Scotia, the first Southwest Lights Workshop was born.

Talk about a busy weekend, three days of shooting all day through the wee hours of the morning and then getting up and doing it again after five hours of sleep.  Nothing like having a top portrait photographers help you work with poses and lighting when you are use to shooting most everything photojournalist style.

I was definitely more comfortable shooting outside, but this does really put an itch for a set of studio lights and workspace.
