Welcome to Ron's blog

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I travel a great deal looking for photographic images all over the world.  I'm a retired professional photographer with over 35 years' experience and I'd love to tell you about some of my experiences...

 

 

Xochimilco

October 05, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Xochimilco is not far from Mexico City.  It was built on floating  islands by the ancient Aztecs to gain manmade farmland (chinampas).  Now it is a pleasant place for Sunday afternoon family outings.   There are vendors, refreshments (refrescos) both soft drinks and beer and mariachi bands and food.  This photogrid shows some of the colorful rental boats.  Many are named after a wife or sweetheart.

We recently visited the Fiesta Ware store in West Virginia.  Bargains can be picked up in their Outlet Store.  Check out this photo grid I made showing a few of the many colors available.


Convince The Coach

The moment:

Freezing the action

One of your best allies is the coach.  Many of them don't even see your strobes going off.  Show them you're on their athletes' side.  Don't try to get foul shot photographs, you don't want to break the athletes' concentration and spoil their  free throw.  You make coaches' athletes look good while  providing great action pictures, pictures that can end up in local newspapers as well as various college or university publications.

Photo request forms:

What others are doing

You need a plan.  What better way than requesting in writing what you need photographically. Submitting a form does two things(focusing onwhat is really important and using your resources wisely in a methodical, deliberate way). It is very easy to photograph everything that moves or doesn't. You can prioritize or even eliminate frivolous or meaningless requests if you have it in writing. You should have your supervisor's OK before lifting a camera. Setting some guidelines is always helpful. To see some excellent examples  of photo request forms go to (http://www.bw.edu/news/photo request/ or (http://www.umb.edu/news_events__media/communications/com

The good, the bad and the ugly:

The types you meet

 

People break down into different kinds of groups.  You probably know Mr. Hover, Mr. Artsy, Miss Entitlement, Mr. Knows-A-Little-About-Photography and Mrs.Easy- To-Get-Along-With.  Those are just a few.  You can probably come up with your own.  Try to guess who are the people you deal with or answer to everyday.  Don't forget yourself, you're a very, special type.
