Boerne High School vs La Vernia Football

A bit of warmup for both teams and me.  Boerne High School Greyhounds worked out against the La Vernia Bears.  I guess it's different looking through the camera, I can't tell if it's a scrimmage or a regular game....all I see is action and wanting to crop into the intensity of the play.

University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) - Pre-Season Scrimmage

The Cardinals are two weeks away from the start of their new football season. It's coming on five years since the program was established and with the recent coaching change and improved morale of the team, it should be another great year....and even better if UTSA would play them. They historically have played hard teams in their NCAA Div II league and this year will be no different as they go up against NCAA Div 1 AA #1 ranked Sam Houston State.

All the seniors that started the program and have served as it's foundation will be graduating this year, but will do so knowing that UIW has been accepted as a NCAA Division I team in the Southland Conference, beginning July 2013.

If you get a chance, check out a home game. While they don't have the media budget UTSA has they play some intense football.

THSCA All-Star Football Game - Alamodome

I had a chance to shoot the Texas High School Coaches Assn (THSCA) All-Star game last Tuesday in the Alamodome, San Antonio, Texas.  Fox Sports was doing a live broadcast, but they didn't have all the lights on since I understand they only do that for Hi-Def games, e.g., Spurs, etc.

It was a good test for my new Nikon D4 and 200-400mm/f4 lens.  The 200-400mm is soft at full extension, but it stills performed well and I was able to maintain 1/640 shutter speeds at f4, on a lens with so much glass it's effectively a T-5 to T5.6, for you photo geeks out there.

For folks that just like cool photos, check them out at (aka
