Suggestions for photos this weekend

Submitted by Eric on September 6th, 2012 at 7:01 PM

Well this weekend will be my first time on the sideline this season. I'm looking to get some input from te MGoBlog community. First, are there any photos that you guys would like to see?  Second, when I post a slideshow, how fast do you lose interest? 10, 20, 30 photos? 

I love doing what I do, but really it's for the enjoyment of the people that read the blog. I appreciate all of the comments when I do post a slideshow and you guys have been very supportive. I want to make sure that I'm making it enjoyable for you guys. 

Go Blue!!

p.s. I'll be wandering around tailgates this weekend.  Send me an e-mail if you want me to stop by and make you famous! I'll try my best to hit up a few tailgates and get some fan photos! ericupchurch44 at g mail dot com.

Please take ten photos of hot chicks with big racks, and 1 of the scoreboard if we win. If we lose pan over to section 37 row 17 to see me slicing my wrists. I can't take much more, since Gerg and Borges have been making decisions. I went to the Iowa game last year and thought Gerg was our new OC. That stadium is a joke btw. Flip!

1. Vincent Smith finger guns
2. Blurry shot of Norfleet finding a seam
3. Hopefully no pictures of our athletic trainers attending to our players ala UTEP

Maybe a really wide stitched together panorama? Or something super tight like an eyeball with part of the helmet visible (enough to recognize the helmet)? A touchdown from your knees? You take great pictures, let's see something crazy.

Honest question for Eric:

How often do you go up to hot girls at bars and tell them you're a photographer for a prestgious modeling agency, that you think they'd be a very successful super model because they are so beautiful and that if they came back to your studio (in your apartment) for a photoshoot, you're certain you could get them a real modeling gig.  Then when they get back to your place, you convince them to slowly take off their clothing so they'll be able to show the agencies how great their body is.  You keep going until you have a bunch of naked pictures of them, and now they feel so comfortable with you that you end the shoot by making passionate yet dirty love.

How often would you say you do that?  I don't have the photography equipment to pull it off.

warmups and after they touch the banner.   Some good candid shots of the players -- especially the freshmen -- taking in the experience of preparing to play in the Big House.

Your photos last year were excellent.  Looking forward to what you produce this year.

I trust your judgement. Obviously you'll take pictures of the game, if you have the equipment and are in the right place. But here are some pictures I'd love to see:

  • Recruits in attendance, both football and basketball.
  • McGary, Robinson, Burke, Hardaway, Beilein, et. al.
  • The inside of the Crisler Center, or even the outside of the new entrances, etc.
  • Football Alumni in attendance.
  • BWC actually doing the right thing on the field.
  • Gardner catching a ball intended for Tacopants.
  • The drums in front of Revelli.
  • Mattison and Borges and Hoke.
  • Mealer's beard, and his brother.
  • A mustachioed Taylor Lewan.
  • Brian and Mrs. Brian.
  • Seth and Mrs. Seth.
  • Dave Brandon with Machivellian smile.
  • Godson of Oosterbaan.
  • Flyover planes & helicopters.
  • Airmen parachuting into the Big House?
  • Players we never see photos of. (walk ons, seniors who've been passed by who just don't get PT.)
  • Denard sitting on the wall with fans after a win, especially if with Lloyd Brady.
  • Celebrities? (Jeter, Seger, Kate Upton, Upton's friends.)
