10/24/2015 Hays vs. JBHSOPE Homecoming
It was a long night. And it was a lousy night for photography when you don't have a waterproof camera. But I managed to find 323 images that looked alright. Oh, and the Band Sweetheart photos look good!
READ THIS... if you haven't before:
I photograph my son, Jordan, a senior baritone Section Leader, in an effort to document his time with the greatest organization he has ever been a part of. I don't mind if you share any photos you find of your OPE member on social media sites and emails as long as you leave my copyright watermark along the bottom of each image.
These images are optimized for viewing on-screen on your electronic devices -- they won't reproduce well in printed form because these JPG files are highly compressed and are of reduced resolution. If you would like prints, please contact me via email and I can handle any printing needs you have. Identify images by their captions. The caption includes the date/event/file number of each image. With that data I can identify your image among the thousands I'll shoot this year. Then tell me what size print you would like and if you need multiple prints of any image. I have decided to only print the Bowie OPE images on metallic paper from this point on. I produce contrasty, saturated color images, and high gloss, metallic paper reproduces that type image like nothing else. The problem is it costs twice as much, but it is worth the cost. There's a lost of driving involved as well, so I'm making amendations to pricing. I don't profit from providing you prints of the OPE, I'm just trying to recover costs.
4" x 6" = $6
5" x 7" = $9
8" x 10" & 8" x 12" = $12
11" x 14" & 11" x 16" & 11" x 17" = $17
12" x 12" & 12" x 18" = $20
I hand deliver your print orders to your home or by other arrangement.
For you technical types: I shoot with a Canon EOS 7D Mark II body; a Sigma EX DG 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3. (my APS-C size sensor effectively changes my lens's focal length to 80-800mm. I can single out and fill my image frame with any band/guard member on the field.) I shoot all my images in RAW format, so I have to spend hours processing everything I shoot into JPG images. I edit these images on a calibrated and profiled monitor. Your screen is not calibrated, so the colors, contrast, and exposure of my images won't look the same on your screens. If you were to print my image, you would see the image the way I edited it because all printers are calibrated to the same standard as my monitor. It takes me a few days to post my images after an event.
Note: click the DOWNLOAD icon under each image to save the full-size image onto your device. Maximum dimensions are 1920 pixels wide and 1200 pixels high. If you find all the scrolling tiresome, there is a Slideshow function you may use if you click the Slideshow button over to the right --->
I know you've all seen the young ball boys playing catch throughout each game, oblivious to all that surrounds them... until the moment when one of their upper-classman heros pulls off an epic play. That is the only thing that halts them, if only for a few seconds. Observe the slack jawed wonder on the young faces behind the receiver racing down the sideline after his pass reception.
