Jeff Garcia, SF 49ers quarterback, was busted yesterday for drunk driving in San Jose, Ca. Seven hours after his release from jail, he gave a press conference to show his contrition.

Note the serious gear used to capture this serious moment (10D, 550EX, 17-40/4). :1drink

    There was a much better image taken by the guy standing behind the guy with the 10D that showed up in the SJ Mercury print edition this morning, but that image hasn't shown up on the web for some reason. I suppose I could scan it...ugh.

    Later...
    So maybe I dreamed it? I just looked through the paper, and there was another shot, but it wasn't the one I was looking for. Nevermind. umph.gif

    I like the stofen diffuser that the guy next to the 10D guy is using. Might have to cough up the $17 for one.

    I have one of those diffusers. Makes a big difference. But a surprising amount of light still gets through. I find myself pointing it every which way to reduce the harshness.

    I use the stofen and I have been very happy with it.

    I think :umph has been replaced by umph.gif
