p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · MLS Playoffs: Sounders @ Real Salt Lake


Tough loss for Real Salt Lake on Thursday night. I was hoping to have one more game to shoot this year but the Sounders will be moving on to the western conference finals.

Lio (xicotencatl) makes this look easy (see here) but I'm here to tell you that shooting soccer under the lights is similar to volleyball in being much harder than it seems it should be. Lots of shots that look good until you look at them closely and realize they're not quite sharp enough. Here are 5 that make the cut. C&C welcome.

Hi Russ,

I totally agree with you. The other thing to consider is how the exposure varies depending on where the action is on the field. I will typically divide the field into three zones and roll the shutter on the fly to make the adjustment. Your exposures and color look great. Hope all is well.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Michael. You know of what you speak. I've got to get better at those on-the-fly adjustments. Thanks. Good to hear from you.

Thought it was a great set Russ. Watched the game on TV and it seemed like a physically intense battle. Both teams were fighting hard to earn this one. Lots of scenes like photo 3.

Leave it to Russ to come up with a unique, and in my opinion, an excellent goalie shot
Excellent work, as usual buddy!

AChilders: Thank you. Yes, it was physically intense and, with the go-ahead/winning goal scored in the 81st minute, emotionally intense as well.

Matt: Haha. Glad you liked it. I thought it was different enough to be worth posting. Kind of gives the impression that the keeper has an intense interest in the exact location of the ball at all times. Thanks for your feedback!

Was #3 an elbow to the head, or colliding heads?

I honestly don't know. Didn't see what happened and never saw a replay.

If I'm not mistaken the ball also got stained with the ball.

Russ;
I have never shot volleyball before, but I'm looking forward to do it soon.

I'm hoping to shoot the Sounders this Sunday, although I'm thinking the season is over for them as well.
(Down 3-0).

Lio.

They're all good but #5 makes me stop and look. I like the feel of it.

I have never seen a shot like #5.. Awesome

Love the others, I can only imagine how closely you have to follow soccer as compared to other sports.

svanstone9: Hard to say.

Lio: Yeah, the Sounders were thumped by the Galaxy. It's going to be tough to come back from that one.

Thanks, Caleb.

Marty: I appreciate your feedback. That's sort of how I felt. A very different shot, but there's something catching about it.

Thanks, Manny. Soccer does require careful following of the action, and when that action gets close, if you follow the on-ball action, you have to know that a lot is happening beyond your vision and that the central action is likely to change very quickly. Fun stuff!
