There are a lot of food disagreements in the visual department. What’s the best pizza topping, who makes the best chili, and don’t even get me started on the whole cake v. pie argument. (Cake has frosting, obviously it wins.) But one thing we as a department can stand behind is how awesome honey crisp [...]
(Daily Record/Sunday News — Paul Kuehnel) A rain delay and then the York County Championship Series game was halted due to the storm turning home plate into a play day for Stoverstown’s Zach Schuler.
I defend York County and how cool it can be. Often. Friends and family will ask how I’m getting along in York, Pa. People I meet on assignment ask how I ended up here, especially after learning (because they asked) that I’m from Texas and got my degree in Missouri. Convincing others that yes, [...]
As a member of the Associated Press we have access to the thousands of great photos from all over the world that AP collects every day. It’s a great resource but it can also be overwhelming. What if we miss seeing an amazing photo? To help with that, AP has a system to tag the [...]
York County 4-H’ers are creating a mosaic on the side of one of their buildings. Every year, they add another two animals. Can I just comment on how awesome that is? It’s like Noah’s Ark, except instead of two of each animal, they’re just doing two animals at a time.
Baseball is literally a hit-or-miss sport, and this applies to baseball photography, too. I shot Game 2 of the Susquehanna League semifinals today. If Red Lion won, they’d go on to the finals. If Windsor won, they’d take on Red Lion in a Game 3 to determine who would continue to the finals. The game [...]
The last time I shot any type of combative sport, it was mixed-martial arts. In Missouri. In 2009. So I was a little apprehensive about shooting boxing last night. Well, not so much about actually shooting it, but more about understanding it. I think sometimes photographers can get away with not fully understanding a sport, [...]
Posted by Jason Plotkin Brad and Frank were walking toward me away from the linebacker’s area. It was Media Day at Penn State and one of their video ideas had fallen through. Ben Kline, a Dallastown graduate and current linebacker with the football team had just turned them down to participate in a video. Earlier [...]
I love Scottish Highland cattle. They have a head full of long fuzzy hair and a quizzical expression. Mostly they’re just adorable. When I saw the Paul Kuehnel had an assignment to photograph some highland cattle, I expressed my hopes that he would come back with a cute photo of one of these shaggy animals. [...]
Every assignment has it’s challenges. Low light, difficult subjects, sensitive topics…a wall of sex toys. I have been sent to cover events at a porn store twice now by the paper. This time around it was for a 50 Shades of Grey-themed ladies night. If photography was an Olympic sport, shooting at an adult store [...]
