Casino Night Pictures

Recommended Posts

Keep a watch in the Pictures forum b/c I take pictures at every game I attend. Last night I got some good shots of Patty during warmups and the game. :) His tongue is going to get it's own tag since it hangs out so much.

Nice pics; I always wondered what Casino Night looked like. Didn't realize that they held it on the arena floor.

Re: blurry pics. You're shooting with a point and shoot digital, aren't you? What it's doing is focusing in on the largest *middle* space, which, when taking pics side by side, it is going for the background. If you look at your pics standing next to players that are blurry, you can see that the stuff behind you is usually clear. It will help if the person with the camera takes a picture off-center, so that the preview box you see is focusing on the one of the faces. I have a multi-zone preview, but even my camera will sometimes do that annoying thing where everything *but* the intended subject turns out clearly.

I'm not near my picture files @ the moment, but when I get a chance, I will see if I can find a couple of shots to illustrate what I mean more clearly. :)

these are all great pics......thanks for sharing with those of us that can't make those functions. i would have to say that we undoubtably have the best looking (read: HOT!) team in the whole league. and looks like they enjoy having a good time, too! ;)

Caneswincup, I appreciate the pointers, but no I do not use a point and shoot camera. I use a digital SLR with manual controls and know that the reason some are blurry is because I wasn't changing my metering mode from evaluative to center weighted and each have its own challenges. I simply wanted to have fun and wasn't too worried about it. I posted them b/c I like to poke fun at myself and the subjects at times.

I'm glad everyone is enjoying the pictures. Outside of just having something to remember the events, I love letting those who aren't fortunate enough to attend for whatever reason (location, etc.) experience it. :) I'm four games behind in game pictures and will be up to 5 after tomorrow. Wish me luck on getting the all up by Monday!! :lol:

That is funny that you comment about the whole tongue thing. I notices it a long time ago when he first came to Ottawa. There was that and something else with his mouth he would do. He is so darn cute. Miss him lots. I can't wait until Sun to be able to watch the Canes play the Sens!!
