Broncos Super Bowl 50 Ring Ceremony - Back Stage Pass

Broncos Super Bowl 50 Ring Ceremony - Back Stage Pass

If you didn't happen to be on the Denver Broncos' roster during the 2015 NFL season, or work in the front office under John Elway's management arm, chances are you did not get an invitation to the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 Ring Ceremony at Mile High Stadium yesterday. 

No worries, because you can at least see the event staging photos, courtesy of AKPHOTO and LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE (LVMH). Feel free to browse the image gallery below and take in the sites, from the endless bottles of Moët champagne, Belvedere vodka, Dom Perignon, and Hennessy, to the NFL "Hedge Wall," locker room bars, cigars, and of course, the Super Bowl ring lock-boxes.

Enjoy!

But, I don't think they always believe me.

I'm here to clear the air and let everyone know that there's no need to feel insecure and that the truth must be known....

Paul C. Buff Offset Arm • Why You Need One to Tilt Your Westcott Apollo Softbox!

Paul C. Buff Offset Arm • Why You Need One to Tilt Your Westcott Apollo Softbox!

Using speedlights in softboxes intended for speedlights can be an infuriating experience. The layout of the zippers often restricts aiming of the softbox to anything but a completely vertical position. To get around this, photographers have come up with clever ways of moving the speedlight a few inches off the stand, to allow for more movement.

The solution I've found to be most effective, however, is the off-the-shelf Baby Boomer Offset Arm from Paul C. Buff. The arm is a perfect length to allow for full articulation of most speedlight softboxes, and provides the flexibility necessary for working with modifiers like the Westcott Apollo in the field.
