July 4th 2011 CT Renegades Match - nanosphoto
Sleeping Giant<br />
A former New Haven EMD FL-9 sits quietly on the grounds of the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum in Willimantic, CT as the crescent moon sets in the background.  This was taken during a test night shoot.  It was the first time I had used studio monolights to light a night scene - this was using two lights - one nearly face on, and the other broadside.  Traditionally we had used a portable Lumedyne flash, which was used to evenly light the scene.  This method enabled the use of shadows to add some depth, and preserve the night "feel"

Bang - Pop!
A member of the Connecticut Renegades - a Cowboy Mounted Shooting team - runs through the course on a July 4, 2011 match. The goal of the sport is to navigate a course on horseback, while using your single action .45 caliber revolver (loaded with specially loaded blanks) to pop balloons. Points are derived from both balloon pops as well as time through the course. This was one of the few shots I got with the balloon popping.
