Default Low-Xpectations Practice

Low-X is the local field's team, and plays Div3 Race 2 5-man (PSP). They're currently in 4th overall, and practice against the locals every Sunday. It's great to watch, and I brought the camera out to snap a few of them. Quite an amazing format to watch in person.




^I'm not sure if Aaron (red/yellow sweater) was constipated or what, he held that position for a minute or so.




^This one was straight vertically, to give you a hint how fast he was running.















Just a few selections from the gallery located here: http://www.bigredphotography.net/gallery/9056773_YFFQf
I request that if you find a bad one, please PM me with the number under the preview on the right so I can fix it. I'm really tired and really out of it, so I apologize if you find one like that.

That's the sun shining on the lid. It was bright and sunny, 102*. Dust markers were shining it was so bright.

I threw the watermark together in about 3min, and am going to revise it soon as I like how it turned out with that font.

You're dumb. Have you ever tried photography? It's alot more then just pushing a button.

Very good pictures I really like the 3rd to last picture

As a matter of fact, I have..and it's not difficult at all.

I can take better pictures with my Kodak than this kid can with his Nikons.

It's actually a Canon. Tim does a very good job with what he has, and has actually managed to find a hobby he can make into a career. What have you done with your Kodak?

1.) I make money, real money, from this.

2.) I run a business.

3.) **** Nikons (<3 you Dre and Leed, you will find the true path to enlightenment hopefully)

4.) My equipment is quite expensive for a reason, if you think you can do better, prove it. I am also in the process of getting more equipment to take better ones.

5.) My clients are so happy with my work, one is currently having me PS one into a tattoo for him.

6.) Without Googling them, can you tell me what ISO, aperture, and shutter are? Without knowing those, there is no way you can take pictures like I do.

7.) It's actually a compliment to say that my photography is like others, because that means that I'm on the same level as Gary Baum, one of the top photographers I look up to. Thank you for unknowingly complimenting my work. Dumbass.

I like that one too. I wish the side coach hadn't been right there in the second to last one, but I sure as hell wasn't stepping into a lane to take it.
