From The Archives Friday: Clint Corey

August 15th, 2014 by Meegan Reid

Silverdale native and Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame inductee Clint Corey has been photographed and featured in the Kitsap Sun many times. Here are just a few of the photos I found while digging through the negative archives for Sun sports writer Annette Griffus’s upcoming (Sunday’s edition) story about the rodeo great.

FRAMES: Photo Challenge #80: The Fair

August 13th, 2014 by Meegan Reid

Oh boy, it’s just about that time of year again, that time of year when my co-photog Larry Steagall and I start getting antsy and start finagling ways so we each get to spend the whole last part of the week at the Kitsap County Fair and Stampede (fyi, I’m better at finagling than he is so odds are I’ll be the one there most often ;) ).

We absolutely love to shoot the fair and rodeo! For a photographer, you’ve got everything right in front of you; cowboy hats flying through the air during all the rodeo action, bright neon colors of the carnival rides illuminating the puke faces of kids who have rode them a little too soon after eating elephant ears, capturing the heartache of tears streaming down an adorable kids face as she auctions off her pig to Farmer George and all those deep-fried culinary classics just waiting to be captured in a still-life.

So, your photo challenge this time (as it is this time every year) is to show my your best photo taken at the Fair (which includes the rodeo and demolition derby).

Here’s the thing, I don’t care what fair you are photographing, sure the Kitsap County Fair is August 20th.-24th. and it is local and convenient,  but if you have been to another awesome county fair (and by fair i mean the kind with 4H animals, cotton candy and a carnival) this summer and have an amazing photo, I will accept it. BUT IT MUST HAVE BEEN TAKEN THIS SUMMER. It does not matter what kind of camera you are using, by all mean if you are a hardcore iPhone photographer than show me your best instagram of deep-fried twinkie etc.

Deadline is September 5th. which gives you plenty of time to edit down your shots, do not send me 20 photos, send me 5-7 at the max.

You may email me your submissions at mreid@kitsapsun.com or use the handy uploader on the right of this page that says” Upload Kitsap Frames Photo Challenges here.”

Stand-outs will be published in an upcoming edition of the Kitsap Sun.

As usual, here are some photos from our archives to get you thinking:

From The Archives Friday: 1987 Port Orchard Cruz

August 8th, 2014 by Meegan Reid

Port Orchard’s annual classic car show The Cruz takes place this Sunday so I thought a few pics from the first event held on August 10, 1987 would be a perfect From The Archives feature.

I like the fact that some of these cars photographed could be taking part in this event this weekend once again… but in full vibrant color of course. ;)

FRAMES: Photo Challenge #79: Summertime: STAND-OUTS

August 4th, 2014 by Meegan Reid

Nice job on the Summertime themed photos shutterbugs! As usual (and yes I know I ALWAYS say this) but I love seeing the different subjects and photography styles that were showcased for this challenge.

 

Remember, there aren’t any winners or losers, I just pick a few photos and ramble on about why the “stand-out” to me for various reasons.

The following photos will be published in the Sunday, August 10th. of the Kitsap Sun print edition.

 

"Celestial Eruption" Kim Hart This is a gorgeous and very well executed shot of the Milky Way lighting up the sky above Mt. Rainier. I just love the lights of the climbers snaking their way up the snowy face.

"Jumping 2.0" by Samantha Rowan I took a little photo editor liberty with this shot and cropped out some of the water on the right hand side to put the focus of the image squarely on the jumping action gong on. I really like how everyone in the frame is frozen in a different moment of their jump and that makes this image just a great image of summer fun.

"Sailing At Sunset" by Richard Miles I again took a little photo editor liberty with this image and cropped out a bit of building on the left hand side because I felt it took away from the focus of the photograph which of course is the lovely little sailboat framed but the tree. I am a big fan of images that frame objects with other objects in the frame. Fellow Sun Photojournalist Larry Steagall and I use this composition technique almost daily because it is a great way to make interesting images and put the focus on something that otherwise might get lost in the photo.

From The Archives Friday: 1973 Bremerton Fire Department Pumper Truck

August 1st, 2014 by Meegan Reid

My best guess on this sleeve of negatives is that sometime in 1973 the Bremerton Fire Department got a new pumper truck and Sun photographer Cliff McNair Jr. was of course dispatched to shoot a story on the new truck.

From The Archives Friday: Whaling Days 1975

July 25th, 2014 by Meegan Reid

I was looking for something timely to post this week and figured finding the first negatives of Whaling Days would be perfect.

While my “research” (you see research sounds so much more professional than googling, but let’s face it, I just googled all of this) turned up that Whaling Days started in 1972, further research (ahem more googling) turns up that 1975 was the first annual festival as we know it today. If I am incorrect in this, blame google.

I can tell you that 1975 was the earliest box of negatives that I could find any sleeves labeled “Whaling Days”, so google could be correct. ;)

From The Archives Friday: January 1969 Frozen Kitsap Lake

July 11th, 2014 by Meegan Reid

I realize it is a sweltering July day but since it is darn right freezing here in the Photo Cave (I kid you not, the air conditioner is on so high that my hands are like ice cubes and I’m shivering as I edit photos) I am going with these shots from January 1969 simply titled “Frozen Over Kitsap Lake” as your From The Archives Friday entry.

I have  to admit, I honestly didn’t think it was possible for lakes to freeze over here.

But remember, I am from Michigan and winters here in the Northwest seem almost summer like when compared to the Great Lakes State, so that explains my naiveté of this frozen lake situation (I hope). ;)

FRAMES: Photo Challenge #79: Summertime

July 9th, 2014 by Meegan Reid

Ahhh summertime! The season of sunsets, ice cream cones, beaches, kayaking and s’mores.

The weather out there has been so amazingly delightful, that I’m going with the challenge theme of SUMMERTIME for this round.

So your challenge this month if you choose to accept it is to show me your BEST photo that depicts the Summer season. You may interpret this theme any way you so wish…maybe Summer to you is a still life of a good book in a hammock, an ice cream cone being devoured by a ravenous youngster or a silhouette at sunset. Summer is all around you so gosh darn it show me how you see it before the leaves start to fall!

THINGS TO REMEMBER:

1) The whole point of these challenges is to get you out in your community and get those shutters (or phones) snapping while building on your current photography skills and to push you to take better photos. I will accept photos captured earlier this summer, BUT THE PHOTO MUST BE SHOT AT SOME POINT IN THIS 2014 SUMMER SEASON.

2) Put your name, REAL NAME somewhere on the upload entry or included in the email to me.

3) Pay attention to your light, subject matter and composition because those three things are the most important parts of a good photograph.

4) Have fun, photography is funnest thing in the world darn it!

5) Take the lens cap off of your camera (if you are using an actual camera that is).

6) There are 12 Hasselblad cameras on the surface of the moon. They were left there after the moon landings to allow for the extra weight of the lunar rock samples to be brought back.. (You don’t really need to remember #6, I was just seeing if anyone actually reads these and I think it is a cool tidbit of photo info).

DEADLINE IS FRIDAY AUGUST 1st.!

Entries may be uploaded via the “Upload Kitsap Frames Photo Challenges here.” link over on the right hand side of this page or you may email them to me if you prefer : mreid@kitsapsun.com.

Stand-outs will be chosen and published in an upcoming print edition of the Kitsap Sun.


FRAMES: Photo Challenge #78 : Selfie (or Self-Portrait): Stand-outs

July 8th, 2014 by Meegan Reid

Nice job on the Selfie/Self-Portrait Challenge!

Okay, to be honest I don’t really ever take selfies, nor did I study them while getting my photojournalism degree.

The thing is, the same guidelines for a “good” photo should still apply to the selfies of the Facebook generation as well, those guidelines being of course; composition, light and subject matter. I admit, many times I see a selfie posted to facebook and I cringe because of lack of all or some of those guidelines.

I realize that my profession causes me to be a wee bit more critical of every photo I look at, but come on people, if a selfie must be taken and posted for the world to see, make it photographically stellar in every way possible!

But I digress.

I really enjoyed the diversity of the selfies entered, there were some straight-forward shots and some lovely “out of the box” creativity going on. Of course, I especially liked the ones that made me laugh because I think we can all admit those are always the ones that we remember. One entry of two dogs and an owner was particularly hilarious, but it was too small of a photo to be printed, thus I couldn’t make it a “stand-out”.

Here are my “stand-outs” that will be published in the Sunday, July 13th. edition of the Kitsap Sun.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“Feedback” by Steve Johnson

Steve used his Olympus OMD-EM1 camera, (which sends image and shutter functions to his phone) to capture this selfie of a selfie of a selfie. It is a very creative and well executed photo. I also really like how he used both forms of “camera technology” (phone and actual camera) to capture this

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“Untitled” by John Haydon

This was of course one of those shots that made me laugh. I really don’t need to see John’s face in this selfie, I can get a sense that he is a funny guy who likes the color blue.

Setting up the fireworks for the Poulsbo show. Tyler Boyle

 

“Poulsbo Fireworks Set-Up” by Tyler Boyle

I don’t even know if Tyler meant to enter this in our challenge since it was posted to the Kitsap Sun Facebook page. But I grabbed it when I saw it because to me a selfie that gives a sense of place or action by showing what is in the background are the best ones. These selfies tell more of a story of the person in the photo and being a photojournalist I am of course all about the photos that tell stories.

"Train Ride" by Benjamin Steele

“Train Ride” by Benjamin Steele

Sure the viewer is looking up the nose of the photographer/main subject of this shot but that nose perspective is pretty humorous and gives this frame a very interesting composition.

0713_KSFE_Frames04

 

“Selfie With Spike” by Dan Kuhs

The expressions of both subjects and the adorable spiky hair of this youngster really makes this image delightful.
