Hissing Cockroach

“Ten for $10″, read the sign at the East Bay Vivarium.  So I bought 10 roaches.  The guy tried to charge me $20.  I pointed at the sign, “Roaches ten for $10″ with a smile on my face.  He then went through the involved process of voiding out the previous sale.  I wish I would have kept my mouth shut.  The staff at the vivarium is odd, hostile with a sense of humor; elitist reptile lovers.

I finally finished “Killing the Fat Man Episode 11″ tonight and rewarded myself with a roach photo shoot!

This was shot in a photo tent, using 3 flashes.

Nearly 70,000 athletes entered the CrossFit Games.  The affiliate (team) competition was spectacular.

Even with the great ISO available on cameras today, I don’t like shooting over 640.

Two of these bad boys (Canon 600EX-RT), a Canon 5D Mark III, and five practice shots later, I got the photos above.  It is a pleasure to use these new flashes. The best compliment I can give these “speedlites”, is to buy a third.

 

CrossFit Games Media

The 2012 CrossFit Games must have had 300 media/media related personnel.  I remember hearing that the official CrossFit media team took over 40,000 stills on Friday (day 2).  This guy in the photo is a photographer from Peru. These LED signs that many of us squatted in front of, made the 90+ degree stadium even hotter.

Angie Pie was in the underground arena entrance at the 2012 CrossFit Games and she stepped into a pool of natural light, in an otherwise dimly lit holding area.

I switched the Canon 5D Mark III from video to photo mode and grabbed a gang load of stills.

It was a feeding frenzy in Armenia.  Swallows fly the summer sky in the thousands.
