Prep School Football

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

  1. Well, Mike's a tough act to follow, but after the FH game today I wandered over to the football game (if you're not familiar, most prep schools schedule sports on Wed & Sat (participation is mandatory) so they usually have a lot of games going on at once: soccer, football, FH, etc.)

    Not usually a football shooter, but wanted to give it a try w/ my Siggy...and also used my 70-200. EXIF intact.

    1. Sorta liked the left knee coming in...maybe not?

    2. The kid in blue behind was at least a foot taller than most of the other kids, made framing tough.

    4. Yup, batted down the pass...

    6. And scored, thought how he put the ball up was fun.
