Derby Time Again

Tonight I am headed to the final bout of the year for the Nashville Roller Girls. Chris Lee is taking R2D2 to the bout tonight, so I am sure there will be some great photo opportunities. I am looking forward to the evening.

First Night at the Nashville Derby

I finally got a chance to make it to my first Nashville Roller Girls bout last night. I got to hang out with Chris Lee and also got to see Jess and Mike who are two of my friends who ref for the derby. I am still getting the hang of the new lens, but I was able to get some decent pictures.

A Great Day with a Giveaway

Today turned out to be a pretty good day thanks to Scott Bourne who if you are not aware is a professional photographer who is responsible for Photofocus.com and is also a guest at times on the Macbreak weekly podcast. Scott often does photography related giveaways to people who follow him on Twitter. Today was my lucky day. I received a $100 dollar gift certificate for Lens Coat who make protective neoprene sleeves and cases for photography equipment. This is perfect timing, as I was able to use this to place an order of a cover for my new Canon 70-200 2.8L IS lens.

I also placed a lens on reserve today for me to use at Dragon*Con. Hofmann asked me to help with the Rebel Legion picture, and I have wanted to try out a nice wide angle lens, so I reserved a Tokina 11-16 2.8 from Lensrentals.com. They are located in Memphis, so thanks to Chase, I won’t have to pay any shipping as he is going to pick it up for me when he gets the lens that he is renting for the con.

On Saturday I am finally going to make it to a Nashville Roller Derby bout. I have wanted to go to one since the event in Indiana, and but I have not been able to make it work with my schedule. I hope that I can get some decent pictures to give to a couple of my friends who are referees.

Star Wars Night at the Derby

I headed up to Indianapolis on the weekend of the 30th to take pictures for the Rebel Legion Midwest base and the 501st Bloodfin Garrison’s trooping of the Naptown Roller Girls bout. It was a great weekend and was dubbed Dragon*Con.5 It was great to get to see Ed, Janna, Robert, Matt, Heather, and Chris and can’t wait until D*C now. Here are a couple of pictures and a link to the full gallery.
