PICTURE PERFECT

If I wasn’t working in radio I think I would like to be a photographer! I enjoy looking at and taking pictures.

When I see a picture that I like, I always study it. I look at what makes it unique and I look at the lighting and details of the picture like colors, brightness, textures and shapes. I also look for emotions in a picture. Is it a sad picture or a picture of joy. I am posting a few pictures that are world famous. I’m sure most of you have seen these.

On a local level one of my favorite photographers is Brian Jeremiason from Minneota. I know Brian from covering Minneota high school sports. He is a very hard worker and is everywhere. Check out his website at www.jeremiasonphoto.com Brian has taken some of the most memorable high school sports photos that I’ve been a part of. I’m posting two of them.

One of them happened this past week. It was the last regular season football game with Minneota playing at Dawson-Boyd. Minneota had scored a touchdown with .44 seconds left in the game and needed to go for the 2 point conversion to tie the game up 22-22. Minneota running back Zack Fier took the ball and was heading for the goal line. The Blackjacks Brayson Boike knocked him out of bounds with a big hit before he could reach the orange pylon. Brian was in the perfect position to get the picture. Then another picture of the Dawson-Boyd coaching staff reacting to the big time tackle. I’ve studied both of those pictures and he did a super job of capturing the emotions and moment.

Another picture Brian took I have hanging on my wall in my office and also on my computer for background, state girls basketball at Williams Arena. Minneota had a thrilling win and Brian captured the Vikings’ bench celebrating the moment they knew they had won the game. So much happiness in that picture. It’s a great picture.

I’ve taken some memorable pictures over the years that I still enjoy looking at now and then. I’ve even entered them at the county fair and won some ribbons. I consider myself a pretty good photographer and would love to turn it into a profession. If you have a favorite photograph please share it with us.
