Russ, haven't been around lately, but looking through your latest threads has me realizing that we're all witnessing the evolution of a truly accomplished photographer. I guess it's the mark of someone who's totally on top of their game when every sport they shoot exhibits the same level of high quality as the sport they originally showed proficiency in (uh, that'd be gym, buddy). Obviously that takes dedication, passion, and no small measure of talent- qualities you just don't seem to run short on.
Pisses me off how good you are, but you've earned it. My hat's off to you, Mr. Utah.
Gosh, Tom, those are some mighty kind words and I thank you. Pisses me off how freaking creative you are, and I don't even think that makes us even (you win!)
Seriously, I appreciate your take and there's no doubt the amount of shooting I've done has contributed to the confidence I can bring to covering an event. Doesn't eliminate the stupid mistakes and the challenges, but I am finding it possible to come away with some solid photos. Gymnastics looms and, assuming I'm still 'the guy' for Utah, I will be there, trying to see the possibilities through your eyes. I'm looking forward to the 1Dx + 200 f/1.8 combo. The full frame should give me just enough extra space to use the 200 in ways that weren't possible before. We'll see....
Thanks again, Mr. SoCal.
