Oregon State Daily Barometer update

The photo editor of the Barometer did end up writing back to say thanks and to say that the shot worked out great for them. I wasn't really annoyed at the lack of communication in the first place. But it was definitely gripe-worthy.

Though I'd guess I'll still need to rely on my other contact to get a copy of that day's paper.

And to whomever left the comment on that previous post that the photo was an "unbelievable shot", I actually think that particular one was really quite average. Technically sound (though I had to adjust for terrible under-exposure on my part), but not really that exceptional as far as gymnastics photos goes.

I think the shot to the left is worthy of a Sports Illustrated cover and is my favorite gymnastics shot so far. From the NCAA Championships last year. I didn't have a press pass for that meet, but none of those photographers down on the competition floor could have gotten this shot from where they were standing.
