30 Year Anniversary of NC States' 1983 Championship Run

It was the home game at Virginia that Derick Whittenberg came down on Orthel Wilsons foot and broke his ankle.   It was a potentially season ending injury for the senior guard and a severe blow to a team that was showing potential to win an ACC championship.  In the photograph below Valvano helps Whittenberg from the floor along with head trainer Jim Rebock.  Whittenberg had to sit on the sidelines as State went to Carmichael only to see State lose to Michael Jordan and the Tar Heels.
Freshman Ernie Myers and Terry Gannon took a larger role however, and coming home to Reynolds Coliseum, pandemonium broke out as State beat UNC even without Whittenberg.  More to come.

AlienSkin Blog Post

Our work was just featured on the Alien Skin Blog.  Go check it out.  It highlights how we use their program Exposure to create Black & White conversions.  Having been a Black & White specialist for years, it was fun to find a digital tool that gave me the kind of look I have been searching for representative of traditional black & white.

Finally the Website Reworked!

It takes a while to rework a website.  It's the start of another long process to add new portfolio material to one's primary marketing tool.   I always struggle to decide what work should stay and what should go.  Inevitably, I have to toss out images that I really like that just don't fit the mold of what I'm trying to do.   That is perhaps the biggest struggle photographers have... deciding what defines their style.  I enjoy so many aspects of photography that I tend to show different styles, hoping that what I bring to the table however is a fresh and unique interpretation of the subject.   I steer away from trends in photography.
Whether I am successful or not is up to interpretation.  I don't toot my own horn, but I have to get out and show what I enjoy doing.
