Here we have PIANO MAN in the hands of Shane Ellis crushing it with a convincing win in the eighth.
This time I used the 600mm f4 on a monopod with the d4s and 300mm 2.8 on a d300s as the remote which would be around 450mm with the CF, (more reach me.likey) I quite like it. I kept it simple and didn't add the wide angle remote at the winning post this time, will put it all together next week.
My keeper rate is increasing in comparison to a year or so ago.
I'm now able to guestimate the angle and the focal plane way easier
I find my self diddling less with the exposure on the remote cam throughout the day :) A foot pedal may be something that I add to the setup to cut down wading through blank images if I trigger via hot shoe firing on d4s or to free up my hands if I gotta manually fire the trigger by pressing the pw iii test button

One of Falcon Heavy’s side boosters performs its landing burn just before touching down at LZ-2 at Cape Canaveral last week — this was another one of those images I initially didn’t like, but I’ve come to appreciate it more. When I signed up for Falcon Heavy press credentials, I wanted to be as close to the launch as possible, which meant watching from the KSC Press Site. SpaceX gave accredited media various options on where to watch the launch and landings from, and in choosing this option, I knew I’d be rather far from the landings, and touchdown would be obscured by trees. I was okay with that — as cool as Falcon 9 landings are, we had seen them before, but we had yet to see a Falcon Heavy launch. With this in mind, I wasn’t too concerned about getting great photos of the landings. I didn’t get any frames of the two boosters performing their landing burns, which initially disappointed me. But then I realized how lucky I was to put myself in a position to frame the second booster in a break in the trees like this. It’s not the best photo I’ve shot, but considering the circumstances, I’m happy with it!
I’m proud to share that one of my Falcon Heavy images graces the cover of the most recent issue of Aviation Week magazine! This is my first cover shot for any magazine and I’m honored that Aviation Week contacted me with a desire to run it. Admittedly, I originally considered this a “failed” image — at least based on what I originally intended to capture. I wanted to have the rocket’s engines in the photo, but by the time my sound trigger activated the camera, they had already left the frame. I’ve come to appreciate the image for its abstract nature, and how different it is than my previous launch photos. It conveys the fury of Falcon Heavy without actually showing the rocket. As Bob Ross said, “We don’t make mistakes — we have happy accidents.”

Falcon Heavy ascends toward space during its inaugural flight last week, as seen from the KSC Press Site. A few of the roughly 400 accredited media members are seen taking in the incredible spectacle as well. I’m glad I snagged an extra camera for this wide shot. Genuinely still in awe at this launch, over a week later. Nikon D3400, Nikon 18-70mm, 1/2500, f/7.1, ISO 200, at 38mm.

Welcome to “Memoirs of an Olympic Photographer” ... Today our featured Olympic memoir is: Nathalie Pechalat & Fabian Bourzat of FRA during the Ice Dancing 2006 Winter Olympics Torino, Italy. .
I like to photograph the Ice Dancing final Free Programs from Ice level using a 400mm f2.8 ... the goal is to get very tight on the athlete’s face, mimicking TV coverage that captures the emotion and passion that defines Ice Dancing.
But Newsweek photo editor, Kelly Grant, requested something “beautiful that says Olympics.”
The challenge now becomes to be 2 places at once ... get what Newsweek requests, but also give them the images I know they will see on the LIVE feed and THEN certainly want to publish.
I knew from my research that a young couple from France, Nathalie Pechalat & Fabian Bourzat would not make the podium ... and that they would perform a long elegant edge stop across the Torino 2006 logo at center ice.
Upon arrival at the Palavela Olympic Ice Hall (3 hours prior to competition) I secured my rink side photo position and then made my way to the mezzanine level where I secured a REMOTE Nikon D2x camera with 70-200mm f2.8 lens to a railing ... when pre-focused and racked to 70mm the Torino logo was a perfect fit.
NOTE: I use the PocketWizard Multi MAX Transceivers with Custom Frequency installed (only my Transmitter can trigger the camera) ... Having a Custom Frequency installed is very important and a requirement if you cover big sporting events where numerous other REMOTE cameras are being triggered.
I got the REMOTE shot as Pechalat & Bourzat skated beautifully across the Torino logo, and I was also able to photograph rink side and capture tight emotional images of the Olympic medalists as well. Newsweek used images from both locations ... win-win.
Join me tomorrow for another edition of “Memoirs of an Olympic Photographer”
Falcon Heavy climbs from LC-39A — here’s another frame from one of my two remote cameras placed at the pad for this week’s Falcon Heavy debut. It’s been three days since liftoff and I’m still in awe at how awesome of a launch this was. I was genuinely shaking while watching this massive launch vehicle head toward space. I’m incredibly thrilled the launch was a success, and I’m also very pleased with my resulting photos. There’s a gallery on my website — johnkrausphotos.com, link in bio — of my favorite photos from this launch. Check it out! Thanks to all of you for the support, and welcome to my 5-6k new followers! My previous few posts received an unprecedented — for me — level of comments and unfortunately there’s too many to respond to individually, but I have read and appreciate them all. I hope you all have enjoyed my Falcon Heavy coverage; there’s many more launches to come, and countless more stories to tell. For anyone interested in displaying some of my launch photos in their home, check out my website: johnkrausphotos.com/buy-prints (link in bio).
