I finally got to shoot the 7D at a concert at only ISO 3200! And was able to shoot at f/4 for a little depth of field. How sweet it is 😉 To say that Brandi Carlile came to the Boettcher Concert Hall on November 13, 2010 would be an understatement. She and her band […]

This one was a challenge. I think that if I hadn’t had the extra ISO capabilities that my new 7D provided I wouldn’t have come back with much of anything from this shoot. Not only is the Bluebird dark but I think they actually lowered the lights for these guys. To add insult to injury […]

:wuv: I recently decided that it was time to upgrade old faithful (A Canon EOS 20D) to some new hotness (a Canon EOS 7D). The differences are amazing. Even the feel of the CF Card door opening and closing feels sturdier and smoother. This is gonna seem like a lot of ragging on the 20D, […]

I got the chance to step back in to the role of Concert Photographer on Friday night and I’m pretty excited about it. The Denver Post’s Reverb Music Blog gave me a shot (and one more coming up soon) to see how I’d do. I think I did pretty well considering the place was a […]

Its that time of year again. Blood, bites, and Zombies. Downtown Denver turned in to a Zombie infection zone last night as thousands of revelers showed up to have a bloody good time. For whatever reason this year’s crawl started during the day and as a result produced a little more of a jovial crowd […]

Our slave labo… er, intern, hard at work. Nothing special about it. I was just looking for an excuse to play with the Reel Moments app on the iPhone. I’ve had the app for a while but was hamstrung by a Google phone lock policy that came down with using their Exchange access to the […]

The Avalanche pulled one out against the Blackhawks. Nice. And my new tradition of taking a shitty iPhone panorama from my seat continues: Club level, section 226. Past shitty iPhone panoramas (and one decent real pano) can be seen here.

I can’t say the current job isn’t without perks. I don’t travel much but when I do its to nice places. I can’t argue with San Francisco and New York. Salt Lake I could probably whine about a bit 😉 More pics after the jump.

The 2010 NREE happened this past weekend on Sept. 11. The skies were absolutely perfect for an air show. All blue, no clouds, and with enough of a breeze to keep you from burning up (but not enough to deter the sunburn. D’oh!). The Exhibition was the first time I had actually seen wing walking […]

So, as the Taste of Colorado comes to town I once again get my shot at some free concert photography. This years its Brett Michaels of Poison fame. I admit, I listened to that as a kid. I think their first album came out when I was in middle school. A guy in my class […]

Artist Melody Sealman and a group of cohorts arranged thousands of plaster frogs on the 16th Street Mall this morning. The majority of the effort was spent on an arrangement outside the bus station at 16th and Market. The effort was mirrored in other cities as well. Sealman and her crew worked 8 months to […]

I headed out to the Colorado Sport International Airshow today and had a pretty good time until my foot started bothering me. I think these shoes are toast ’cause I don’t have foot problems. I left early, before the 2nd air demonstration with the jets. Boo. Its probably for the best. The light wasn’t favorable […]

Found this lil’ guy making his way across the sidewalk this morning while walking the dogs. So, naturally, I interrupted his walk to talk a few pics… he was rather confused about suddenly being in the air and moving around. Didn’t make him any less active, though. Lil’ bugger was hard to shoot ’cause he […]

I would like it better if there was more of those great clouds in the negative space towards the lower left, but all in all its still fun.

The wife went off to run and naturally, I went off with my camera 😉 After all, why would I run? I wasn’t being chased.

I’ve been putting off doing something like this for a while now, but I finally broke down and signed up for a Zenfolio account so I can try and sell some of my photography. I figure its gotta be worth something to someone, right? So, photos.top-frog.com is the site and possibly, at this time, one […]

Spent a nice day with the folks down at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs. The zoo is great. Damn nice for podunk little city like that 😉 The giraffe exhibit is certainly something to go for. They don’t like being touched but its damn cool to get that close to them. I’m a […]

I love heading out to the track and taking oodles and oodles of mediocre pictures of cars running around the track, but this weekend I found more to enjoy surrounding the race that actually in the races itself. The above photo was by far my favorite. I noticed the rider doing a few tricks on […]

Update: Prints of these and other photos from the event are now available for purchase. A variety of print sizes as well as personal use digital downloads are available. Today marked day 2 of the Denver Chalk Art Festival in downtown Denver. It may have been a bit TOO nice of a day today as […]

Sometimes I forget just how close to home I can stay and still have a good time with the camera. Just played around with the pups this afternoon after a bit of frustration at work (nothing serious, but self induced which made it that much worse) and managed to turn out one or two keepers […]

Encountered a bee hive while out on our walk with the dogs earlier today and decided to go back for a good look with a camera. I’m glad that I did. Everybody was well behaved. I tried not to move quickly and I’d get landed on once in a while but all in all they […]

When you hear a camera going while on a plane its a geek like me that can’t resist pressing his or her camera against the window and grabbing a few of the world going by. Sorry if I woke you. (not really!)

These are the signs of spring that I like to see… not the snowy ones. Unfortunately its bokeh like this that illustrates how badly my sensor needs cleaning…
