Goal Cam

The goal cam remote is one of the most frustrating remotes in the world. You bring it every game, set is up, and mostly, you get photos of empty nets, no action, or a couple hundred photos of the goalies back, standing waiting for action with empty stands. . Sometimes you get lucky however and during the Copa America, it all came together, for a goal, a celebration, and a full stadium.

For convenience, I’ve started to use a fixed 28mm lens as I can fit my remote kit into a small bag.

Stanford opens the season with a win over Kansas State

Great to be back in the mix shooting Cardinal football this year. Going to be a tough schedule but the Stanford machine looks pretty tough and up for the challenge.

I took a different approach to covering this game and just brought my 2 D4’s, a 24-70, 15mm fisheye and a 200-40o, an iPad and two of our special transmitters. While I really liked the portability of the set up, I kind of missed how the 400 2.8 cleans up the backgrounds. For the USC game, I’ll probably go back to my usual set up, but that will be TBD…………
