p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · first HS football in years.


First varsity HS football shots of season (actually years); as the playoffs just began for our 6th seed Div 8a team.

From the stands just to see what I would get. The full overcast skys certainly helped with shadows but I was light challenged with the f5.6.


1. 0314







2. 0326







3. 0327






4. 0342







5. 0353 anticipating another score






6. 0363







7. 0369 Ė unlucky shot, I donít know what that photographer was thinking being right on the sideline obscuring my shot of the ball landing on the receivers outstretched palm at the back of the end zone??

4 is the cleanest stock shot, and I like 3 for the action, but the rest are only so-so -- though much better when you consider you haven't shot football in a while.

7, here in Indiana would be an illegal place to stand. We had this issue a few weeks ago with a local online site sending their photographer to a game to snap a few pictures and leave. She was literally on the line where the grass ends and the paint starts. We told her to move back (approx 3 ft which is the width of our safety line) and she responded, "No, I'm leaving in a minute." We once again told her it's not only for your safety but the players safety and if a ref caught her he could penalize us all. Once again she refused. I found the AD for the school but by that time she was walking to the gate.

Rules are there for a reason... and people not following those rules should be escorted off the field.

Worst part was she was shooting with a 1.6x crop camera and a 100-400, so it didn't really matter if she took a 3ft step back, she was just being inconsiderate...

thanks for the comments.

@Mr. Karr,
Ironically for #7, this was called as incomplete due ref believing feet didnt' come down in bounds. Had that photog not been there on the end zone sideline, the next shot in the series would have shown as complete. Good thing we didn't need the points ;-).

@Caleb
Here are two more shots with more action, but ball missing which is why I hadn't included in original set:

8. 0328-






9. 0371
