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.

7's Rugby Tournament

 I attended a local 7's rugby tournament put on by the Women's Belmont Shores Rugby team at El Dorado Park this past Saturday.

After all the wildlife shooting I've been doing it was great to get out and shoot some sports.  Not only was it nice shooting sports, or even rugby, which I have covered for two years now, it was a great morning to be out.

Although I've done some shooting for the Belmont Shores Women's Rugby team in the past, for this tournament I was basicly out for me and wandered around from game to game capturing some action and just getting back into some good old sports shooting.

So take a look and let me know what you think. 

Evening Walk

 Last Tuesday the wife and I went out to the Bolsa Chica Wet Lands for a evening walk.  I did bring my camera because you just never know what you'll see.

I do keep my eyes open for photo opportunities and captured the below shots.  It was a great evening out with the wife.

All of the shots below were taken with the 300 f/2.8 hand held.

My Sweetheart Sarah

 Ok, now be gental, but I've been wanting to get out to do more portraits and simply practice.  Not too long ago I bought my daughter a $100 coat for $10 and love how it looks on her.  I've been wanting to get her out to take some shots, not just to practice, but to get some recent shots of my sweetheart as well as taking some with the new coat.

I really do love how these came out, especially the last two, but I really need to get better with my white balance.  I do have a whibal card (white balance), but as usually left that piece of equimpment at home.  So I'll just have to have my daughter come out again to take more pictures - oh gosh.

Any hoot, please feel free to give me your thoughts and things that I should change or simple work on.

The following two shots are very similar.  One was taken while sitting in the grass while the other was taken while I was laying in the grass.  I really like these two shots, but interested in which you prefer.
