Lakeland and Coeur d'Alene soccer

09/09/2013 Sports Photography Recap

This last week I covered my first soccer game of the 2013 fall sports season when the Lakeland boys visited Coeur d’Alene High School and then finished up the week with three football games on Thursday and Friday.  Thursday Graham Kapowsin High School from Western Washington visited Post Falls high school and the JV game and the first half of the varsity game was played during daylight hours which is so much fun for me!  Then Friday Sandpoint traveled to Spokane Valley to take on East Valley.  Below you will find a handful of photos from each game, for full galleries and to order prints click on the appropriate links.

The 2013 Fall Sports Season Begins

For a while now I have been thinking about creating a new Facebook page that focuses mostly upon my sports photography and this last week, right in time for the beginning of my fourth year of High School sports coverage,  I pulled the trigger on the idea and launched the “Jason Duchow Photography – Sports” page which of course will primarily feature sports action photography.  I am hoping that having the two different pages will allow me to have a clear message and consistent content on each page and hopefully prove to be a good marketing and business decision.  If you don’t already follow one or both of my Facebook pages I invite you to do so, here are the links:  Jason Duchow Photography  /  Jason Duchow Photography – Sports

On Friday I kicked off the Football season at Lakeland High School were there was a Jamboree with Sandpoint and Timberlake.  Then to cap off the day I was at Post Falls for the varsity game vs Capital from Boise.   Here are some photos from the games, click on the heading to visit the full gallery and order prints or digital files.

July Bobble Head Portraits

When you use a wide angle lens, like my Canon 17-40, you have to pay close attention to the distortion that is created when you shoot the lens at the wider settings.  The distortion is especially prominent when you shoot with a full frame camera body like the Canon 5D III.   It is usually recommended that you try to avoid the distortion, especially when taking portraits but instead I have decided to start embracing it to make some fun, intentionally goofy portraits during my senior photo sessions.  I have been calling these portraits my “Bobble Head Portraits”, the reason will be blatantly obvious as you view the photos!

The main goal of my senior sessions is to make sure that my clients look great, an important part of achieving that goal is to make sure that we always have a fun time working together and these Bobble Head Portraits are sure to bring a laugh or two.  Here are the Bobble Head Portraits from my July photo sessions.

2013 Chafe 150

This last weekend I covered the 2013 Chafe 150 for the third year in a row.  This annual race starts in Sandpoint, Idaho and follows a route through Bonners Ferry, then over to Troy, Montana and then back to Sandpoint through Clark Fork and Hope.  It offers both a 150 mile race from Sandpoint and an 80 mile race starting in Troy and both races end in Sandpoint.

In previous years the race has been in early June when the weather can be unpredictable, my first year it was hot and beautiful then last year it was pouring down rain for almost the entire course.  This year the event has been moved to July when the weather is much most consistent, it was definitely a hot one but that sure beats the constant rain we had last year.

Through out the course we found locations to set up at least one and often two different cameras to capture video.  Usually we would have one camera set up to get a wide angle view and another set up with a long zoom lens.  Then of course I took almost 5,000 still images of the event which I culled down to just over 600 for the final gallery.  You can visit the final gallery here to view all of the published photos as well as order prints or digital copies.  Below you will find a handful of still images followed by a seven minute video featuring both still images and video footage.

Usually the only time I see sunrise is before going to bed after a long night of editing, not on the day of the Chafe though!

Nick & Laura’s Engagement Photos

Recently I met up with Nick and Laura in Sandpoint, Idaho to take some engagement photos for them and I have to say it was quite an interesting experience!  This is not a couple that will get accused of taking themselves to seriously and in between the hi-jinx we were able to get some photos along the lines of what you might expect.  We started out at a location on Schweitzer mountain and finished up down by Lake Pend Orielle.

Connor’s Senior Photos – Moscow Class of 2014

Connor is a senior from the class of 2014 at Moscow High School, we met up in Coeur d’Alene to work together on his senior photos.  Since music is such a big part of his life he spent a lot of time during out session with his guitar in his hands.

On our way between locations we came across a great lemonade stand and I could not resist asking permission to take a few portraits with the stand and the young entrepreneur running it.
