Month: February 2008
From my 2007 Portfolio.
Romania’s Nicolae Istrate. Park City – at the FIBT World Cup Bobsled Competition at the Utah Olympic Park, Saturday, December 8, 2007.
Taylorsville – Skyline defeats American Fork, 5A State Girls high school basketball state championship game at Salt Lake Community College, Saturday, February 23, 2008.
The front page of the Tribune’s website has this cool thing that rotates through several of the top news stories of the moment. Once in a while as the rotater switches from one story to the next there’s a slight hitch in the system; for a split second the displayed text doesn’t match up with the displayed photo.
This little tech hiccup has created a new source of entertainment for some of us staffers, trying to capture funny screen captures. I found the one above and thought it was pretty funny. But then fellow photographer Scott Sommerdorf caught this one and stormed the leaderboard:
Richfield – Fans of Rich High School’s girls basketball team traveled over 260 miles to see their team win the 1A state championship game over Piute High School at the Sevier Valley Center, Saturday, February 16, 2008.
Another series of state basketball championships and the only photos that matter to me now are the storytelling moments. The jump shots, steals, rebounds, and scrambles that I captured at high shutter-speed— you could literally throw them all out and I would never notice them missing.
