beginnging to end of super bowl photography

Pat’s post about the Canon 20D and the following discussion got me thinking about shooting digital photographs as both RAW+JPEG at the same time, which is something I’d read about professional photographers doing.

For a day I couldn’t figure out where it was, then I remembered it was in an article about the Sports Illustrated Super Bowl photography and the tremendous amount of resources they pour into it.

It was tricky searching for it, but I eventually found it. I find this article amazing because no only does it have a human story to it, but it takes you through absolutely every step of getting a photograph from the field to the printing press and exactly what equipment was used at each step. You could recreate a Sports Illustrated Super Bowl photoshoot with the information given; it’s very scientific in that way.

I did my radio show this morning. I went through my top 15 albums of 2005, from number 15 to number 1. The playlist is here.

Here’s the list:

  1. Illinois Sufjan Stevens
  2. Takk Sigur Ros
  3. All Day [EP] Mates of State
  4. Pixel Revolt John Vanderslice
  5. The Sunset Tree The Mountain Goats
  6. Veneer Jose Gonzalez
  7. Dignity and Shame Crooked Fingers
  8. All Harm Ends Here Early Day Miners
  9. Woman King [EP] Iron & Wine
  10. Plans Death Cab for Cutie
  11. Tiny Cities Sun Kil Moon
  12. I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning Bright Eyes
  13. s/t 13 & God
  14. The Great Destroyer Low
  15. Devils and Dust Bruce Springsteen

I made the list four times and it was different every time. This was the last. So it’s more like my top 15 albums of 2005 for December 14-15, 2005. Something like that.

Albums that were close: Set Free American Analog Set, Bodies and Minds Great Lake Swimmers, Set Yourself on Fire Stars.

Slightly disappointing albums that would have made the list if they were as good as I’d expected them to be: On My Way to Absence Damien Jurado, Stubbs the Zombie Sountrack, What Comes After the Blues Magnolia Electric Company, In the Reins Calexico and Iron & Wine.
