Today Bill's guest article is on Scott Kelby's Photoshop Insider Blog. Check out his stories from Istanbul and more about his experience shooting with the Nikon D4.

I spent last night on the sidelines photographing the rematch between LSU and Alabama for Sports Illustrated. That's six straight BCS National Championships for the SEC. The photos are online now at SI.com, SI Snapshot and on the SI Big Ticket App. In the morning, I was on a plane from New Orleans to Florida. And this afternoon, I'm on set directing the incredibly talented Florida-based recording artist Alea. Laura's directing the photography. It certainly is a great start to the week!
