    Last night Obama came to the UO so I headed down to get some photos for my paper. Press badge + looking like you know what's up = all access. Only myself, one local other paper and AP had the balls to walk past secret service and get on stage. Was kind cool being in front of 10,000 people snappin' photos. Enjoy and CC.

    I was going to send you a message today on myspace to see if you were attending his rally

    You should clone out the hand in this pic, and it would be :bowdown:

    I thought about that and if I make some sort of album cover or something out of it I will, otherwise the hand is growing on me.

    Awesome lighting. Were these taken during the day? Or is it actually dark out? I can't tell.

    I was there snapping from about 4 p.m. and Senator Obama began speaking at around 8 and finished at about 9 or so. So essentially I was shooting him at night. They had a bank of flood lights facing him and another behind and to his left, almost like hair lights. The lighting had a weird balance and both banks of lights were different. But once I got off the media platform that everyone was on, I got some cool shots.

    Your pics are much better than his political views :mamoru:


    but seriously great shots. you captured some awesome emotion and told a story with these. Definitely not your basic event coverage shots :)
