Ryu went to Brazil to shoot the Confederations Cup. Matt relocated to Reno to shoot a 10-day-long rodeo and suffered through shooting in 106 degree heat in Livermore.

Master Class
Ryu and Matt stage a play based on Flickr comments about gear, and the theme is “Your gear isn’t making pictures, you are.”

Training Ground
Training Ground is now on video. If you’d like to participate (and we think you should), enter your pictures in the Flickr thread and make sure to tag them BLFSTG201306.

You Win
Our June 2013 themed competition was “Wheels.”
The winner was Tim Surman with a panning picture that really stands out:
Wiscombe Park Hill Climb
Second place was a detail of an ice tire by Jens Soderblom, and third place was this wide angle drift car by LoïcZ.
The July 2013 themed competition is “Sun, Sweat, and Sl…”. Goto our BLFS flickr group page for competition rules and to enter.

June Podium winners are:
1) Russ MCR with this pole vault picture
2) Brendan Bank with this surfing picture
3) Adam Butler with this futbol picture

Our new segment where we say good things about sports photographs is called Cross-Counter. Ryu picked an architectural basketball picture and Matt picked Jackie Joyner-Kersee from the ’88 Olympics.

Special thanks to…
Our new producer Robb Massar
