It seemed like everybody around the Eifel Tower spoke a different language and yet most of the people traveled in pairs.  A commonality amongst all of us humans.

“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.

I shot about 8000 photos in 6 days at the CrossFit Games.  I also shot about 12 hour of video, mostly athlete interviews.  The two cameras – Canon 5D Mark III and 5D Mark II.

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.

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.

African thorny bug

I actually saw these bugs around for a couple of days before I realized they were alive.   At first I thought they were plant matter; thorns or bristles.  Even after I realized that they were insects, I assumed I was looking at castings of an insect that had molted.

It was confirmed this was a living insect when I saw this guys eating a leaf.

This was shot in foliage, 10 meters from the Indian Ocean in Mombasa, Kenya.

Super star CrossFit athlete Christy Phillips raising money for CrossFit for HOPE.

This event had athletes from around the United States converge on Washington DC.   There must have been 20 pro photographers shooting the 2:00PM heat which was filled with jaw dropping human physiques.

Get your camera and goto the CrossFit games, it is raining great images.
I haven’t use any flash yet for the CrossFit regional photos.  This photo was taken about 12 noon in San Jose Califronia.
