About Me

My photo
Long Beach, California, United States
Welcome to my blog. Looking through my posts you will find that I love and have a passion for photography and although my expertise so to speak is in Sports Action, I have been getting into wildlife and senior portraits. No matter what I'm shooting I want to bring my client the best possible shot I can and give them / you a photograph that you will cherish for a lifetime. If your looking for someone to capture your child in action, to show the intensity and emotion in which your child plays, look no further. Just drop me a line (e-mail) at homerkenpo@aol.com. I cover most areas in Southern Califoria.

Gymnastic Sectionals

My niece, who has been taking gymnastics for several years now, recently attended Sectionals for level 5. I'm very new to gymnastics's and not familiar at all with capturing the action. There were limited spots where I could shoot from that were unobstructed and the lighting was decent, but still not that great. I was only able to get some shots of her on the beam and uneven bars, which you'll see below.

Here she is with her mom and dad. I'm sure her mom will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe she placed 1st on vault, and 6th on floor. I don't recall what her final total score was, but she did make state, which will be held in Long Beach in November.

And here I am with the champion.

Love the first one! I like how the person watching is framed beneath her legs and seems to be looking on in awe.
