p.1 #1 · Mini Football (Super Bowl)


These are from the Super Bowl for the Mini Football League I shoot for. I thought Sandy would have affected these games but she held off for all of the games. Here are some of the shots from the various games.

C&C welcome. Gear was Canon 1DX, Canon 400 2.8 and Canon 17-40 4.0 lenses.





#1







#2







#3 - Nice form on this little guy.







#4 - Celebratory hug on the winning TD.

Those little guys melt my heart...and I am sure they have no idea just how lucky they are to have a shooter of your caliber there to capture their moments for them. So many great images. Every one of them is precious.

Very nice stuff, Frank. Love the look of the FF 400 on the 1DX.

#1 and #3 are my faves.

#6 is a great angle which does a great job of bucking the "rule" to shoot low to make the small players look bigger... it works in reverse too... shoot from above to capture how small these tough tykes were. Would be better of course without the extra kid in the background.

Love the expression in #9... another one that could've catapulted to Paul A's level if the feet were included instead of the awkward crop at the knees and the zebra in the bg. But trust me, I know you get what you get on these crowded fields, and you don't avoid taking the shot if the backgrounds aren't absolutely perfect.

#14 is another great one that is so close to being stellar... nicely exposed face, great eyes and expression. Look at the hands on that kid... the comfortable control of the of the ball, gaining yards while keeping an eye on the D. Would love to combine the best of that shot with #16... add in the stiff arm and all limbs perfectly framed. #15 is right there in the middle too... great expressions on receiver and defender, great ball action.

Overall your backgrounds are great in the whole set... nicely melted but still very contextual. I'd crop #11 a little tighter on the sides to a 4x6 aspect and lose the partial players on the side. Nice colorful crowd in #4... much better than empty bleachers.

Our youth league championships are tomorrow. I can only hope to get a few as good as these.

Mark....thank you for the nice comment.

CW....thank much...

Clarence....sweet write up. I like and appreciate it. On #6 (smaller-bigger)...I knew I missed it as soon as I saw it. I rarely use a WA and that was the result. This year I have been using it more...even in my senior pics and I'm liking the results. So more to come. Also...I couldn't believe the crowd at this game. They played at a HS field and both sides of the bleachers were full for most of the day. Looking forward to your post.

Charlie....thanks for the looks and comments.

Thanks Again
Frank
