Lincoln Christian Crusaders are having perhaps their best season ever, and that happily coincided with my own piqued interest in shooting sports. My inaugural outing went OK. I learned a lot, and wanted to correct some mistakes at my next outing. The next home game was the final regular season game, which is traditionally when the team's seniors are honored. This also happened to be head coach Matt Farup's 100th game coaching the Crusaders. LCS won the game, finishing the regular season at 7-1 and earning a #2 seed in the playoffs. In short, it was a special occasion for several reasons.
Here you will find tips, techniques, tutorials, and news items from Prairie Rim Images, a photography studio in Lincoln, Nebraska, specializing in events, real estate, product, fine art, and candid photography by Ben Hollingsworth.

Thoughts on my new Canon SX280 HS camera
Canon SX280 HS. The SX280 is slightly larger than the SD870, but is still very pocketable. The big win comes with quite a number of feature improvements that have worked their way into pocket cameras during the five years since the SD870 was made. Below, you'll find my initial thoughts after playing with the new toy for a little while.

Shooting Sandhill Cranes with my daughter
Central Flyway to photography Sandhill Cranes together. It's a fun trip, and one that we've made for four years now. My previous blog post explained the basics of the great Sandhill Crane migration and gave tips on how best to enjoy their annual, spring stop-over in central Nebraska. This time, I wanted to share a play by play of our most recent trip.

Documenting 3D wall art
My dad is a pretty good artist. His current medium of choice is acrylic-painted 3D wall art, and he's been amassing a healthy portfolio of work in preparation for a gallery show. He had been taking photos of the pieces to display on his web site, HollingsworthArt.com, but his point & shoot camera was giving him lackluster results, so I volunteered to come photograph all of his recent work before he hauled it to the gallery for the show. Photographing--or more specifically, lighting--large, semi-gloss objects of varying sizes can present some challenges, so I figured I'd share the process I used.
