Portrait session at SSA IV Monday, April 09, 2007

As mentioned in my previous blog entry, we had the opportunity to make portraits of the beach volleyball players after they played. Bert Hanashiro took one group of students over to Court 2 to make some lit portraits. Wally Skallij helped the rest of us make natural light portraits on Court 1. I spent a bit of time in each area.

Rather than put my other camera in the sand while I was working with Wally and Janelle Ruen, I asked another photographer to hold onto it for a moment. Later, I discovered he'd taken this picture of me at work. Unfortunately, I can't remember who it was ... Bob Ford, maybe? But yes, I'm still finding sand in my wallet.

The (better) results of my efforts are posted below. Nothing particularly original, but they look nice.
