My other "assignment" (a self assignment, BTW) was to make some pictures here. I really needed to get back on the shooting horse again. The morning of the plunge was below zero and it gradually warmed to +9 at "swim" time.....luckily. The Lions announce the groups and members and then it's dunk time. A friend, News Herold Photographer Laura Schmitt (http://lschmittphoto.blogspot.com/) was on assignment here also. The plunge is just a great opportunity to get fun images-expression, action (some faster than others) and shooting something out of the ordinary. I knocked off about 200+ frames and edited them down to maybe 75 that I liked. From there maybe 25 keepers. I wondered how Laura does it-she can only publish maybe one photograph from the shoot and it probably is one a photo editor selects. Must be interesting and or frustrating to press the shutter so many times and have it boiled down to one picture which captures the story-that's why she's so good. I didn't have those restrictions and published a bunch to a Facebook album and now here on the blog.
These are some of my favorites.
