Some Joel Grimes style sports images...

Here a couple shots I did recently of a local high school hockey player.

I used the techniques learned from Joel Grimes at the seminar he taught when he was here last year (here's a link to a seminar post, and here is our interview with Joel).

You may remember the football images I did in the fall (one is below, and here is the link to that post) and I decided to be more subtle, less dramatic with these hockey images.

I really like the look of the BW one, but the first one has something a little off. Maybe the lighting.

You noticed! One thing I did not do on the color image was to do a slight blur on the outline of the hockey player.

I think that is critical for helping the subject blend better with (and into) the background.

Good eye.
