On Sunday I feverishly wrote up an article on the ACC Wrestling Tournament outcome. I worked really hard on Saturday to post process as many of my photos as possible and by the time I went to sleep I had captioned all of the photos from the first round and selected my photos from the semifinals and finals. I knew I needed to caption the semifinals and finals as well as write my article but I was simply too tired to get it all finished the day of the event.

On Saturday morning I woke up around 5:30am. I've essentially been working 2 jobs the past couple of weeks: my day job as a software engineer, and my night job as a photojournalist. I've gotten accustomed to 5-6 hours of sleep for the past week. On Friday I received a D3 to demo and I was extremely excited about using it on Saturday. Either it was my excitement or my body naturally waking me up after 6 hours of sleep but I was up at 5:30 on Saturday.

My laryngitis kicked into full swing on Saturday and by Saturday evening I barely had any voice. Fortunately it came back today on Sunday but it made working on Saturday very challenging. I was looking forward to today's softball game under the full sun because I would have a chance to work alone (and not speak with anyone) and test out the D3 under supreme lighting conditions.

The D3 performed remarkably. The colors are rich and the focus is sharp as a tack. I can't complain about a single aspect of the camera - it is wonderful in every regard.

My shots came out well and I was able to get all of them posted up on our website. Before the game I shot a bunch of warmup photos I can potentially use for file photo purposes.

And by the end of tonight I posted everything. All told it was 3 wrestling duals and 3 softball games. But I spent time on the side posting Yuchen's articles and photos for LAX as well as his Wizards gallery. This second job is really a lot of work!

Please help us out by reading my article and photos on the Terrapins 2-0 shut out of the Columbia Lions in the 2008 Maryland Invitational.
