Pensacola Catholic High School Basketball …

Cheerleaders _10x10_RTP_6 April 16 _ SFW

Here are some photos that I took at a basketball game at Pensacola Catholic High School back in the late 1970’s.  The boys and girls basketball teams played Pensacola High School this night.  I cannot remember who won, but it was a good two games.  I thought that I would just start it off with one of the CHS cheerleaders and I will move on the the basketball games next.  Since I cannot remember anything about either game, I will omit the running commentary and just post the photos.  I will start with the girls and then post a few of the boys.  Enjoy …

There are other negatives in the envelope that I might clean-up and post later.  If anyone has any clue who any of the players are, please feel free to comment.  I want to say that these games were played in 1979, but I am probably wrong.  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank

Here are a few random candid photos that I made this past Saturday at Olive Baptist Church where Pensacola Catholic High School has held it’s graduation for the past years.   These are just a few that of the ones that I made and I will also put up some from the Baccalaureate that was held at St’ Paul’s Catholic Church the night before later.  I am not going to post any comments, since most people viewing these were probably there at the graduation.  Here we go …

Several weeks ago Pensacola Catholic High School had their Senior Prom down at the Pensacola Museum of Commerce ( I still think of it as The Transportation Museum ) and I went down to take a few photos of the King and Queen.  I was early for the walk-out and made some random photos of the kids dancing and having fun.  Here are a few random images and several of the king and queen …

Pensacola CHS Seniors 2015 …

with 2 comments

Two weeks ago, I spent the week over at CHS photographing the 2015 seniors.  I have never done this in the past, but this year I thought that I would take a few photos of the set-up and then show several finished images.  The ones with the camera were made with my iPhone and they are not that bad …mainly to give you an idea of the little studio that I have in one of the class rooms.  The girls I photograph in a drape and the guys wear a coat and tie for their yearbook photo.  The first girl is wearing the drape and the second girl is wearing a casual outfit.  I did this just to show something different and I just wanted to let people know that there are other options that I can do and besides,  the images with the iPhone were turning out better than I thought that they would.  So here we go ….

Next, is an image that has been retouched, cropped, color corrected, etc, etc …


IMG_1032  Pelham _ Ret _ SFW

Obviously, that is a different pose than what is showing on the back of the camera, but I think that you get the idea of what was being done.  Next, the iPhone was working better once one of the girls helping me showed me how to focus on one area and take the image with another button on the iPhone besides the button on the screen.  Thanks for that Jodee,  I never knew that it could be done with another button on the phone … I guess that just goes to show that you can always learn something new.  The next girl had on a cute outfit and this iPhone photography was working out better than I thought it would, so I got her to model for us so I could just show some variety.  Here we go …

A little different cropping …

Thanks to the models … they were several of the seniors that helped me the week that I was over there at CHS and I did not think of trying to do this until later in the week that I was over at the school, so that is why I chose them.  There are still 35 or so seniors that did not have their photos made and I will be back over to CHS sometime in September and probably again in October.  No dates have been set and I do not set the dates, but when they give me a date or dates, I will let you know.  If you have any questions about what I do or can do, please do not hesitate to ask … I just assume that people know that I can do it all, but apparently so many people think that the drape shots are all that I do.  One the things that separates me from most of the other photographers out there now is my retouching that I do to my finished images.  There are so many photographers now that just shoot a lot of images and then burn a disc and then they make you feel like you are getting a great deal since they take so many ” available – light ” images … just take your disc to Walgreen’s or Sams or wherever  and have print them printed out regardless of how they look  Thanks and please check back … Frank
