Soccer Practice

The women’s soccer practice I covered yesterday, was not only a practice for the team, but a practice for me. I tried different angles and locations than I normally would take during a game. I got hooked on shooting this spot so much that I have ordered equipment to shoot this remotely during the first game on Friday and for the rest of the season.

Let me know what you think.


Full Stretch

Another classic shot today. Nothing good from my few frames today, but once again a sport I am excited to cover this fall. Sports students return between 14-19 days from now and I am just thinking of all the practices I will be covering in two short weeks.

Please let me know what you think of this shot and leave a comment. Thank you and good night.


Sports Saturday

As the fall sport season winds down, three teams had their senior day on Saturday to send off their seniors in style. Unfortunately for all three teams the day ended in a loss. The football team’s loss came in the last minutes of the game after they took a three point lead with under 10 minutes left in the game. The heartbreaking loss for the football team devastated many, as their chance for a win this season is quickly diminishing. They have one last chance next weekend as they face Monmouth College (A strong foe, which will likely give them little chance to finnish of the season with a win).

I was running between fields today trying to get photos of all three games. Here are the selects.

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.
