Los Angeles

Greetings y’all!

Writing you from sunny LA where I’m here to cover the UH football season opener against USC.  Despite what the polls say (40 points), I am here because of the historical and news importance of head coach Norm Chow’s first game.  I’ll be working alongside UH football ace reporters Dave Reardon and Stephen Tsai, and I’ll be updating this blog on a daily basis while up here.

I’m also shooting the LA Dodgers’ Shane Victorino and Brandon League–two local boys who are now wearing Dodger blue.  I’ve never shot in Dodger Stadium before, so it’ll be an exciting time!  The Coliseum AND Dodger Stadium in one weekend?!  A dream just became reality!  So stay tuned!

But for now, and for all you camera gearheads, let me share what’s in my bag during this trip.  Here’s an Instagram photo:

It’s been a while since I posted about gear, but there are a few things I should mention.  Monopod?  400 2.8 hood?  These go into my checked baggage.  In the horrendous event that my luggage gets lost or damaged, I can still shoot and make pictures.  Clothes? Toiletries?  Those are secondary to my cameras!  Also, pocket wizards double as remote triggers for my third body (1DMkIII) as well as a radio slave for the 580Ex.

Here’s some more Instagram shots from my travel day, but for now, Ciao!  Off to shoot the Dodgers!

    USC trojans football has a 41 to 47 point spread, that means plus 47 for USC already. I’m wondering how many Hawai’i fans will be at the game at USC and if it will be a sellout at their home stadium. I’m going also with the spread.

    USC Trojans already has a 47 point spread, meaning plus 47 points on their side. If you’re one of those interested in the 1st game of UH football season tomorrow at 1:30pm, I think it would be best if Hawai’i fans can look at this game as a vacation instead. I think it will be a 47 points spread and maybe larger 61 points. I’m not interested in the game, I’m just interested in why people are interested in watching the game. Just for the food!

    USC will have a big running game and a 47 point plus into 1:30 pm HT 9/1/2012 Saturday afternoon Hawai’i time. Hawai’i will look to Beau Yap to come up big with defense. His father played for the Kailua trojans on the OIA team in the 1979 state championships here in Honolulu. This should be a good match up Beau Yap vs. USC offense.
