Thanks, Bill. Good point about location. In some cases that was a matter of circumstance; in others, I went out of my way to create the opportunity.
Scott: I knew I could count on you! Thanks for the confirmation.
DukeK: Thanks for your picks, and your perspective. I agree. There have been so many times when I've shot an event and it wasn't until going through all of the photos, culling, editing and then looking at the take that I realized, damn, this set of images is just dominated by one or two specific athletes. When I shoot major league soccer of NBA, we more or less know going in who the stars are, though even there, sometimes I'll find myself being drawn to a player I'd never heard of before. At lower levels where there's less known and much less hype, it just sort of happens organically.
Good points, Ed (buddy duck). That cheerleader in 5 and 8, who also is featured in 11, is a prime example. She's got a 6th sense for the camera. And now that I think about it, the same can be said for the Jazz Dancer who's in more than one of these posted images. Thanks for the insight.
