A few weeks ago was Olympiad at HU. Olympiad is a series of Olympic-styled games and tournaments where four teams compete to see who is the best. It is also a lot of fun. Unfortunately, I did not participate this year, but I did shoot quite a number of photographs and video. I’m still digitizing and editing the video footage, but here are a few selects from among the Olympiad photos.
|I took a couple of shots at my dorm of people getting ready for the opening ceremonies on Thursday night. This was taken with my Pentax AF200T flash and 18-55mm lens.|
|This is the cornhole event. What I experimented with here was flagging off part of the flash with my hand after seeing the effect caused by a person’s head.|
|Non-athletic contests involved pumpkin carving where each team rushed to complete their carving before any of the other teams.|
|Same light setup as before. In this one, you can see the streak of light on the background from the unflagged Sunpak. B/W conversion was done in Pentax Digital Camera Utility 4.|
|The Synchronized Swimming event was for me the highlight of the weekend. Technically, it’s the same as before except with the 85mm f/2 lens and a shutter of 1/40.|
|This is a shot of the card tournament using available light with the 18-55mm lens at f/4 1/25 ISO 1000.|
|Posing for pictures after the closing ceremonies.
50mm lens wide-open at f/2 1/20 sec ISO 1600
