Before last night’s 44th Annual University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame Induction Dinner, I shot a series of portraits of the inductees. In addition to my conventional Nikon camera I used a unconventional camera for a pro: My iPhone.
With the aid of a small LED light & a gray backdrop, I used the iPhone app “Pixlr-o-matic” to process the images as you see them below.

Among the inductees are Alex Santos (baseball), Bubba Franks (football), Jim Cox (football), Ed Morris (basketball) Jenny Keim Johansen (diving), Sid Schwartz (tennis) and associate Athletic Director Connie Nickel. Jason Michaels (baseball) was inducted earlier this year, as he is currently with the Houston Astros.
Santos (above) was the starting and winning pitcher against FSU in the 1999 College World Series Championship Game. The Palm Beach Post has a story about Santos online today.
Miami Hearld story about the inductees today.
Michaels, who played at UM from 1997-98, hit .396 (3rd highest in school history) with 34 home runs and 154 RBI in his Hurricanes career. In 1997, he set Hurricane single-season records for hits (106), doubles (32) and total bases (189). The Cardinals selected him in the 15th round of the 1997 MLB amateur draft, but Michaels returned to Miami for his senior season.
In June 1998, Michaels was selected for the fourth time in the baseball amateur draft, this time by the Phillies in the 4th round. Entering his 10th season in the majors, Michaels has played for the Phillies, Indians, Pirates and Astros.
