Shooting Soccer with a 50mm

A few days ago I let a new photographer at The Knox Student borrow my 70-200mm so I challenged myself to shoot with just my 50mm f/1.8 during the game. I looked for more sideline shots, since the action was getting covered by the two other photographers from The Knox Student at the game.

Here are my five best shots from the day, and I must say I think I will pulling out the 50 more often during outdoor sports events. It was a fun challenge that helped me think more about the emotion and sideline action than the action out on the field.
