Today photographer Jenn Whalen and I shot a volley ball sportrait (a sports portrait), and we decided to try something a little bit different: refracting the players through water.   Here is the final result:  1/250th, f/5, ISO 100 with a single strobe, to the right.

Real Men Wear Pink Flamingos

This picture taken by Ali Haupt was cropped in the paper. We aren't sure why it happened, whether it was our fault or a copy desk error, doesn't matter anymore. Here's how the picture should have looked.
