Last Thursday, during my sports video shoot for the Waukesha South Blackshirts Football team, I shot this photo of some players in front of the Ken Hollub Stadium scoreboard. This was their final game of the season, so a lot of the players hang around field for some reflection. This photo was of the last four players on the field.

Industrial Mining Equipment Product Photography

Aside

On Thursday, October 18th, I had a photo shoot at WTC Machinery. Shoot started at 7am and went until 2:30pm. Did about a dozen shots on a machine that was capable of 305 tons of pressure. The photos will be used for advertising, product sheets and manuals. I opted to use video lights to cover the larger dimension of the product. The product was being crated and shipped to a customer as soon as I wrapped. I had an adaptor in my truck that allowed me to recharge some of the batteries on the way to my second shoot of the day for the football team I cover. It turns the vehicle’s electric outlets into one that looks like the ones in your home.

Waukesha South Blackshirt Football Team Green Screen Video Introduction Shots

Aside

Shot 25 green screen head shots for the Waukesha South Blackshirts Football Team on Wednesday, October 17. The shots will be composited over an animated title sequence for their highlight video. I also shot their final home game the following night at Ken Hollub Stadium. It rained for the entire game so it was a good thing I had a KATA rain cover for the video camera. A little awkward for shooting but it stays dry.

Alterra Coffee Shop and Bakery Photograph

Architectural photograph of the new Alterra Coffee Shop. Photo taken 9/23/12.

I was a little surprised to see this Alterra coffee shop on my building photo list. I usually shoot larger structures for this client. This was probably the biggest coffee house I’ve been in. This building photo was a little more challenging due to the north facing wall – but it had a really cool bakery inside. They have stools lined up along the baking area so you can have a coffee and watch how they make all the baked goods they sell in the front of the shop. I had a little bit of time before the sun went down behind the building so it was a great place to wait it out. I had a huge cookie and a parfait – I was stuffed. This was located at 2301 S. Kinnickinnic in Milwaukee.

Carpal Tunnel Procedure Animation

Just starting to research a new animation project that will show how a carpal tunnel procedure relieves pressure on the median nerve in the wrist. During my high school football video shoot last night, I was able to get some great source material information from the team doctors. Should be an interesting project.

Church – Architectural Photograph – 2

Another architectural photograph of the same church. Photo taken 10/7/12

This was another photo from the same day. The architectural photo was taken fairly close, so the wide angle lens provides some nice vertical movement toward the sky. As I mentioned in the previous post, I really like the way this building is designed. While the roof sections were modern in materials, it still reminded me of some of the old churches I had seen in Mexico.

St. Mary and St. Antonious church in Oak Creek. Photo taken 10/7/12.

I shot this architectural photo on the way back from a photo assignment in Kenosha. I pass this building all the time on the way to Chicago. It’s one of the more unique church designs and I always thought about how neat it would be to shoot a photo of it, just never had the time. As I came home, the light was just right so I pulled off and took a couple exposures. A nice way to end the day.
