A Flash of Inspiration

It's spring, and that means "Athletes of the Year" photos for many newspaper sports shooters. We get that same assignment every year, and with it the challenge to make the photos look new and different.

Naples Daily News shooter Greg Kahn came up with a novel way to capture the movement of his subjects this year by using an inexpensive continuous light source that can be found at any Home Depot -- rope lights.

Check out his blog post on how he did it, and be sure to click to see to the paper's sweet-lookin' final layout.

(Thanks to James for the heads-up in the comments!)
