Muknal / The Haunting Presence @ Musichead

Things wrapped up a bit quicker than I expected at the previously mentioned Musichead show in Medford last week. I thought we were half done when two of the four bands had played, but it turned out that bands three and four were one and the same so no stage changeover time was required. A couple of band members merely left the stage after a few songs, the remaining two members switched instruments, and a few songs later I was on my way home.

Volleyball tournament action

Another full day of volleyball action today. Today’s photo is from last week’s tournament. We came in 2nd place out of 16 teams last week. Maybe today mOcean Blitz will finally win a tournament (after knocking on the door the first three tournaments).

NAIA wrestling tournament at SOU

With two matches going at the same time, instead of a buzzer when time expired, one of the SOU volleyball players would tap the referee on the back when the clock ticked down to zero.

Between the wrestling singlet and the numerous crotch grabs, many of my photos aren’t very presentable. This last picture isn’t quite so obscene, but it is a strange one.

This past Saturday, Southern Oregon University hosted the NAIA West Region Qualifying Tournament for wrestling. I’ll have a few more photos from the event over the next week.

SOU came out on top to win the West Championship and will be sending a dozen wrestlers (the maximum allowed from a single school) to the NAIA National Championships next weekend.

This photo of Zoe Jakes is from the RAW image. I uploaded the jpg version here but found it a bit too purpley.

I’ve been shooting in RAW + jpeg for the past month or so. For most photos, I can’t get the RAW files to look as good as the jpegs even though the RAW files are about five times as large and take several times longer to process. However, when the lighting is really poor, when the jpeg photo shows lots of noise, or when the lighting is just funky the RAW processing can yield superior results.

Volleyball Super Bowl

Our all-day volleyball tournament on Super Bowl Sunday turned out to be shorter than normal. They started the sets with a score of 10-10 so that they would finish quicker. I think that was in order to allow everyone to get home in time for the 3:30 p.m. Super Bowl.

Johnny B’s – Medford, Oregon

100 watt mind

While watching 100 Watt Mind at Johnny B’s a couple weeks ago, Mr. Johnny B, himself, couldn’t resist Brynna Dean’s vocals. I decided to focus on his unmistakable, greased-back head for this next photo.
