Chaz Dalton

Posted in assignment work, portraits, sports, Washington by bermanphotos on October 1, 2008

I had a photoshoot for The Enterprise today with Chaz Dalton, a kicker for Mountlake Terrace High. Mr. Dalton recently kicked a 42-yd field goal, and frequently kicks successfully in that range. I had about a half hour to shoot him, and guess what? It took a lot longer than I thought it would to make a frame with the ball in it — man, he kicks fast. I suggested to his coach that he get tomorrow off after the extra practice I made him do.

For anyone curious about the lighting, I had an SB-26 on 1/2 power camera right just out of frame, and another sb-26 on 1/4 power zoomed to 85mm, lighting the ball and the ground.

This one was shot with a sb-26 on full power into a small softbox, and a sb-26 on 1/4 power for a bit of fill camera left.

Same kind of moment but I thought including the softbox gave the image a different, cool feel. What do you think?

    Chaz; You have shown significant improvement in leg strength over the years. It is very impressive the number of kickoffs you are getting into the end zone. Continuous Improvement!!!
