I had been posting photos to our newspapers blog site and therefore had put this one on hiatus.  That blog has since been shelved.  So I thought I would resurrect this one.
One of my favorite things to do at The Gazette is the prep athlete of the week photo shoots that occur throughout the school year and feature a gamut of very talented local high school athletes.  It gives me, the photographer, a chance to explore lighting techniques and play off of each student's personalities and where they go to school, team colors and what sport they compete in.
In other words an environment portrait of some nature.  Often times these arrangements are made in haste and you have very little time to think and plan out your plan of attack.  Sometimes you have about 15 minutes to do a portrait.  This includes planning it out, setting up lights and then the actual shoot itself.  It's a true lesson in efficiency.
Here are three students I recently photographed using studio lights at The Gazette and on location.  We have a Rampart High School swimmer, a Coronado High School wrestler and a Mitchell High School basketball player
