Are you ready for some football?

  1. OK as passionate as I am about photography football is in the same league. Here in Philly our Eagles started training camp on Monday. It is not unusual to have several thousand people come to every practice.
    Today practice was held in typical Philly summer weather 98 degrees and a very high humidity. Unfortunately my little girl couldn't take the heat and we had to leave early well here are a few shots from this morning

    Well Mike...it looks as though you had your fun shooting the Eagles. You had great vantage point for these images. Images are very crisp and shot at some peak action. I shot yesterday with papa85, but I haven't had time to look at them. I sure hope that something came out as good as yours. I may have to drive to NJ for some lessons!!!

    Excellant stuff Mike . # 4 really shows how chiseled that guy is.
     
  5. Kearse is a monster! That guy is for REAL! (That last one could be used for autograph hounds).

    Great shots Mike, you have the gift for sports.

  6. Mike that is neat that you live in an area where you can not only see a pro game once in a while but actually go to their practices. Well taken images that are as good or better as seen in any sports page or magazine.
     
  7. Beautifully done Mike. I really enjoy examining your photos - all the t's are crossed and all the i's are dotted.

    Those are awesome! I love the end of summer for 2 reasons....temperatures start to cool off....and FOOTBALL SEASON!!!! Now personally I am a college football gal myself. But put me in front of just about any game and I can get into it...college or pro! College-wise I am an Auburn Tiger through and through. Pro...hmmmm....don't really have an absolute favorite these days, but I like to root for the underdogs. Keep posting more of these shots Mike, I really enjoyed them!
     
  11. Thanks Gale so which monitor did upgrade to.
     
  12. Frank Saw your post they were great we got there two hours early to mark out or spots agasint the fence
     
  13. Thanks so much Rory comign from a photog of your caliber that sure is reassuring to hear.
     
  14. Kearse is insanely built he truly is a freak of nature, you should hear him talk he has a deep voice like Barry White.
     
  15. Gordont thansk fro the kind words, I have been on an email blitz to get these in front of someone who might be able to guide me to help market them, so far no luck
     
  16. Re: Wow, on that 4th shot,

    Steve thsi man is one incredible athlete beleive me he lives up to hsi name "The Freak"
    I have been on an email blitz tryign to get these in front of someone whow would be in a postion to use them but so far no luck. I will keep trying
     
  17. Jeff I sure hope so, the PATS are still the team to beat.
     
  18. Leigh I love any and all football, not supring to hear you are a Auburn fan, so do you have a runnign bet wiht Photo Dawg when Auburn plays Georgia?
    I have tickets to two Eagels home games and thy have no restriction on still camera access, so hopefully I will get a few shots.

    If I'm not mistaken, I think that a few of us are going to the Georgia/Auburn game. I think it is in November, just before Thanksgiving. Actually, I think these guys want to do that game and an Atlanta Falcons game two days later and shoot some images of painted ladies (5 color old Victorians) in between.
     
  20. WOW.....wonderful shots Mike. :D :D :D :D
