This shot of Tyson is my favorite shot of the bunch. I used one off camera flash for all my shots. Some were shot through an umbrella when it started getting darker. I posted a behind the scenes shot too.
We met up at Gasworks on a Monday evening. They brought a few kids for us to shoot as well, but I didn't get very many of them. We split up into two groups and I think Paul Swortz got more pics of the kids, but haven't seen his pics yet. They sure start training them young. I hope their parents are ok with them doing this stuff. It can be a dangerous sport. There was much crawling, swinging, jumping and hanging. I got most of the shots I wanted to get and am pretty happy with the way they turned out.

I don't mind being a "backup" photographer once in a while for a wedding but I don't think I'd want to make a career out of it. It's a lot of work, mostly in processing the pictures afterwards plus it's a little stressful knowing that there are shots you have to get from the wedding and not mess up or miss them. I took a few hundred photos during the wedding/reception for my co-worker as a wedding gift and processed 65 of them to give to her. I posted a couple of my favorites on Flickr. I tend to enjoy taking pics of the details from the wedding more than the people at them. Things like the cake, center-pieces, decorations, etc.
