Is it bad if there are multiple photos of the same athlete? Majority of my best frisbee photos(at different events) are of our captain and of our senior handler.

I just asked someone who had interviewed for the position previously and apparently having both in person portfolio and online portfolio is a good thing. Should I include the same photos that I have prints of or different?

What sort of order? by sport? What do you mean be careful mixing portrait and landscape oriented images?

Thank you so much for your help!!

and this is what I had for my portfolio so far:

I'll give you some thoughts I have...(I shoot sports regularly)

1. I would print and bring about a dozen of your best...and then have an iPad or laptop to display your online portfolio....focus on quality, but there has to be some variety of angles /subjects / scenes /action/emotions

2. I looked through your photos, first thing I noticed is you need to straighten your images.  Second thing I noticed is you need to crop some of your images.  Third, I want to see more faces...I can't see a face in 6 of your first 7 photos.

3. Go take some photos of a couple other sports to give your portfolio some more variety and give the impression that you have more experience.   Try a night game or indoor sport because those are regular sport photography assignments.

You have some great shots in your portfolio!  I like this one the best...I cropped and straightened it.  ( I did a screen grab so that's why the image looks white in the upper right corner)

That guy has some crazy thick thighs.  I have to reevaluate who I believe plays quiddich.

Yes...this guy is in shape! 

Also....I'm sure there are some funny photo captions for a shot like this but I'm not clever enough to think of one right now.  8)

Here are a couple from the weekend - it was very hot here, 95F, but cool enough in the morning for some good alligator activity.  I don't recommend getting this close to the babies (MFD on the 300 f/2.8 IS II + 2x III), but I knew where the 9-10' (2.75-3M) mother was and was careful not to stress the young alligators to the point of calling for their mother.  I used my 300 f/2.8 IS II and drop in CP-L, which made many of these shots possible.  Alligator hide reflects light like crazy creating a ton of glare.  All shots handheld and other than the first one, all shots uncropped.

Male American alligator grunting out his mating call - 300mm f/2.8 1/160s0 ISO 100:


Juvenile American alligator sunning - 600mm f/8 1/250s ISO 2500:


Juvenile American alligator pops up from under the lilypads - 600mm f/8 1/250s ISO 1250:


Another juvenile American alligator sunning - 600mm f/8 1/100s ISO 400:


And showing the versatility of this lens (and the need yet again for the C-PL), here's a waterlily photo taken in late morning light 300mm f/16 1/160s ISO 400:


nice shots mac!   good info too!

And for anyone that's interested in how you get these Low to the Water Shots.

While I was capturing the Images my Guide/Driver shot this, from the vehicle, where anyone that's smart would be.

Not shot with a 1Dx, but it was a Canon.

great info and series!  you did such a good job with your flash/post process that i would've swore that the first shot of the hippo occurred while he was in natural sunlight.   (looks overcast in the photos of you laying on the ground)

excellent!

great shots edward, keep'm coming!

eldar...nice shot of the amur leopard...we have two here at our local zoo....beautiful creatures.

girls softball w/ the 70-200 2.8

i usually try to overexpose by a 1/3 when i'm trying to get faces under helmets, but sometimes i unfortunately blow out areas of the image with that technique.

323
It def would help when cropping 100% or more.   

I would love a 1dx that shot 10 fps with a 36+ mp sensor for field sports...it would turn my 300mm into a 400/500mm from a cropping perspective.(just a ball park estimate when I say 400/500mm because i have no clue what the actual math/ratio is to figure that out??)

Now that i write it, i'd be curious to know if someone could enlighten me on this.

If any of you happen to pick up the June issue of Outside Magazine, check out the last full page on the back (or the "parting shot") as it is known. It's a photo of a squirrel watching sunrise in Yosemite National Park, taken by yours truly.

Great Crested Grebe, with her 2 day old chicks. There are very few birds I know of, where the difference in appearance between adult and chick is so big as with these. If H.C. Anderson had seen this bird before he wrote The Ugly Duckling, he would have used the Grebe instead of the Swan ;)

great job elder!   where did you find these beauties?

Here's one from a few years back.  It is "nothing special" with no real post processing, no polarizer, no HDR, but I like it because it reminds me of one of the best treks I ever had in Eastern Bhutan.  This was the view over my tent in the morning somewhere near Merak.  It has been my desktop wallpaper ever since........

beautiful image and scene....nice story behind it too!
