These photos well at least one of them should look familiar. The one on the back wall I posted about a while ago. The ones on the right wall I shot for a catalog and they found there way to good old Yankees stadium :)
After a day of catching sunfish it sure was a blast to get into some spring time steel on a creek I grew up fishing. If only I left the crappie reel in the car. I’ve always gotten shit for fishing for steel with live bait, so to even the score, I use ultra light gear. 10’6” ultra light rod with a small spinning reel with 4lb test. I’ve always had great success with this set-up. Yesterday I took this obsession a little too far, my ultra tiny quantum energy pti reel was staring at me in the back of the Jeep. I had used it the day before crappie fishing Chautauqua lake and had just re-spooled it with 2lb test. Lets just say these coked up, redbull drinking trout had a blast shredding my line.
With this season in full swing, I decided to dig up a few photos from last year. These never seen the light of day because I never really posted the “good” stuff on flickr or to a blog for fear of “over saturating” the web before making a legit website. Seems as though I’ve decided that social media and networking tools could be used to my advantage of displaying current work. I also believe that looking back at these photos will only make the photos I plan to shoot this weekend that much stronger.
Found this very interesting, I look at a lot of photos. I mean a ton, from flickr, to others websites, to magazines and field and stream. If it has photos you can find me checking it out. I’ve always looked at the photo stories for inspiration. All these photos were taken on a day where I subconsciously created one of my favorite series yet. I dug this out of the archive from a very successful fall trip with my good friend Jay. Maybe its because I was shooting with the Canon 1d mark III, I doubt it though.
