A vs B: Making Deadline. Did I Choose Wisely?

On Saturday evening I covered two final matches in the 2A Northwest District varsity girls’ basketball tournament. As I was covering this for The Bellingham Herald, meeting the tight deadline was imperative.

One minor problem: I had a 9:30pm deadline with one game starting at 6pm and the other promptly at 8. This meant I had to come up with a plan and execute it without a hitch. But that’s for a later blog.

A: What I Sent to the Paper

Lynden defeated Burlington-Edison 67 to 55 to win the district title with both teams advancing to the regional playoffs.

With this, I had my edited images to the paper for the first game by the time the second game started. I also had the online gallery posted. I shot the first half of the second game, worked on my images, then uploaded my 5 edits from the first half.

It was 9:10 and the game was still going so I called the paper to let them know Lynden was ahead and that I was going to shoot the reaction of them winning the District Title.

B: The Second Choice

At 9:15 the game ended. I rushed onto the court and began shooting. After a few minutes the celebration calmed down so I went back to my workstation, ingested the images, then chose one for sending. I made the deadline with 4 minutes to spare.

Sometimes in the stress of making a deadline, we can choose the wrong photo. I think each of these has their merit.

The strengths of A are: You can see all their faces, it’s a little cleaner, it’s easier to read, and overall a touch sharper.

The strengths of B are: The raised arms show celebration, the girl is framed by the arms, the couple in the back hugging (which I missed in the first edit), and the overall excitement.

If you were an editor and had to choose which one to put in print, would it be A or B and why?

A vs B: Which One Would You Choose?

As part of the ongoing process of evolving and improving my blog, I’m going to start an “A vs B” post each week. This will be two photos that I have a hard time choosing which one I like better.

But, it is something I’m flexible on. I know I don’t make the right editing choices especially on a deadline. We all make mistakes. But that’s the beauty of digital: We can go back and

This week’s choice is a pair of photos from an assignment for the Bellingham Herald. Over the weekend I shot the Celtic Arts Highland Dance Competition in Bellingham, Wash. Rather than just stay in front of the stage and shoot, which was rather boring, I headed backstage to find better photos and moments.

While shooting the competition, I moved from the front, to stage left, then stage right, to see what I could get. The sword dance was fun to watch but I noticed their feet and decided a detail shot of them would be a great addition to the standard shots.

First, a bit about how the competition is held. The dancers are not dancing together, rather they dance in groups of three for the judges. Each dancer is judged separately although they’re on the stage together.

B – Published

Competition chair Heather Richendrfer says nearly a hundred dancers from as far away as eastern Canada participated in the event sponsored by the Celtic Arts Foundation and the Clan Heather Dancers. The championship is sanctioned by the Scottish Official Board of Highland Dancing and is only one of two held in the Pacific Northwest. Winners in each division receive a cash prize and a hand blown glass heart-shaped award.

After editing down to create the online gallery, I find myself moved towards A rather than my first choice of B.

Why A?  Her shoes are more sharp, I like the slightly lower angle, the legs are more in alignment, the kilts are visible.

Now your turn. Which one do you like better and why? What would you have done different?

Keeping It Simple: My Workflow

A few weeks ago a few of my followers asked what my workflow is. The short answer: Import via Lightroom or PhotoMechanic, pull into Photoshop, save as new file. I’ll keep my discussion with LightRoom as most people don’t use PhotoMechanic. But the main difference between the two programs is that after ingesting the images in PM, you must export to external editing software for the most part.

As I don’t have a need to upload a million photos, I’m pretty critical of what I do upload. With this in mind, I may go out for a 5, 6, or 7 hour shoot and only upload 2 or 3 photos. Quality over quantity.

Photos of the Year: My Favorites from the past 12 months.

2014 turned out to be a good year for me. Not only have I shot more Getty Images assignments, more newspaper assignments, but I’ve also had the privilege to photograph many sporting and news events, a wedding, and a few portraits.

On top of that, I also went out of my way to practice more landscape photography shooting at night, using ND filters to get 4 minute exposures in daylight, and getting out of my comfort zone hiking into remote places.

These are my favorites from the year. There are more on my site in the gallery 2014 Year in Photos – My Favorites from the Year to view more exciting images from the year 2014.

Solar Eclipse and the Apocalypse in the Pacific Northwest

Yesterday, Thursday October 23, 2014, was apocalyptic. The weather we had here in the Seattle area was remarkable and unprecedented.

We had thunder and lightning, heavy rain, high wind, flooding, and a tornado. Yes, a tornado. The second one in a month. First was a waterspout in south Puget Sound. The second was in Longview, Wash.:  Tornado on KIRO TV

And during all this, a Solar Eclipse.

 Just Peeking:

Yep, A Solar Eclipse.

I didn’t expect to see it. The clouds and rains continued throughout the morning. I thought my plans to shoot it were thwarted so I opted to get caught up on house chores.

While doing laundry, I kept an eye out for the clouds to part. Oddly enough, the rain stopped and the sky cleared just as I put in the last load into the dryer. Sweet.

Must put my plans back into action. To save time, I preset my D300s with my 80-200 f/2.8

First Attempt at the Cross:

© Paul Conrad/Pablo Conrad Photography – The partial solar eclipse and the cross at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. While shooting this, I realized a thin veil of cloud would help bring the foreground object and eclipse into the dynamic range of the camera.

Lacking the phone and my computer as they were in the house, I grabbed my B+W ND3 neutral density filter to look at the sun. The eclipse hadn’t started yet.

As I didn’t know the weather would cooperate, I hurriedly finished the laundry (ie threw it on the bed. LOL) and headed out to check on a few spots I planned out.

So, I headed out to my first place: St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at the intersection of Walnut and Eldridge Avenues.

While driving there, I saw how the wind was whipping a large U.S. flag on a tall pole as I passed it. So I turned around to photograph the progressing eclipse.

But, after shooting a few frames, I looked at the photos and saw how over exposed the images were.  With that, I chose to use my ND2 neutral density filter with its 6 stop loss of light. This allowed me to shoot at a high shutter speed while maintaining a wide aperture..

In It’s Glory:

Plus it cut the light to protect the interior of the lens and lessen the intensity of the light hitting the sensor. With a few better exposed frames, I left then headed to my original place.

Upon arriving, I found a parking spot that gave me great flexibility to move, but I couldn’t align the cross with the eclipse. The positioning required me to shoot through a tree. But I was able to frame the duo with the branches of the tree.

However, I couldn’t get a decent exposure. Either the eclipse was blown out, or the foreground was black. Very difficult to expose for it well.

Requiem II:

As much as I hated it, I needed clouds. Thin clouds would cut down the light and allow the eclipse to show. This would help balance the exposure.

After 10 minutes, I decided to drive to Assumption Catholic Church. This also allowed the eclipse to progress and the clouds to move in. When I got to the church, it was clear it wouldn’t work.

By this time, the clouds were moving in rather quick. I headed back to the parking lot by the Episcopal church. When I arrived, the eclipse was lower to the horizon and the clouds were cooperating. The tree was no longer a bother.

Requiem I:

While shooting, I noticed how the cross would silhouette against a bright cloud that also dimmed the eclipse. The clouds were moving fast, so I needed to move fast. And what do you know?

A pickup truck was parked right where I need to be. So with me running around this truck in the parking lot working the eclipse before it disappeared, I’m sure it looked weird to anyone watching as I ran around the truck pointing my lens towards the heavens.

My favorite photo is the one titled “Requiem I.” It’s simple and clean
