The 2013 MTAL swim season is quickly coming to an end.  The MTAL Championship meet is this Friday, May 3rd at the Bob Walthour Aquatic Center at Carmel High School.  I enjoyed photographing the team and individual photos for the swimming and diving teams.  As is the usual for the central coast, weather is difficult to forecast.  Earlier in the day it was sunny and actually quite warm.  But by the time the Girls and Boys swimming photos were taken, it was actually chilly and foggy.  You can actually see the wisps of fog moving across behind the Varsity Boys Team photo.

Regardless, I chose to photograph the team and individual photos using a medium format digital, a Phase One DF camera mated with the IQ180 digital back.  This combination allows the use of leaf shutter lenses, which are particularly helpful on bright sunny days using a short flash sync and studio strobes.  The medium format digital files provide ample image information which allows me to create exceptional quality canvas banners for the team at the pool.  Some of these banners (and team photos) can exceed six feet in length.
