Prep School FH

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by Aqualung, Sep 20, 2008.

  1. This afternoon our good friend's daughter was playing against the HS Prep school in town, so we went up to see them and watch her play. They mentioned that they didn't have one pic of her HS career (she's a senior) so I said I'd take some shots...

    Thought it was interesting as no face masks! They would put them on during a corner when they were bunched up in the box, but then toss them aside after the play finished. But, the shadows made up for it...:wink:

    Intense facial expressions. I'm surprised they weren't wearing masks. This is certainly an intense sport.
    Nicely captured, as usual.
