Sanity check...

When I show up at a game and I see the teams practicing, I kind of have an idea how much I'm going to like my photos by the colours the teams are wearing.

Some of it is because of lighting considerations: the dreaded black jersey/night game or white jerseys, sunny noon game: and some of it is just pure aesthetics.

All things being equal (and that is an important caveat) I will almost always prefer photographing a team in cardinal red vs. a team in light cappuccino brown, for example.

Here's My List of Jersey Colors I Will Ban When I am Global Commissioner of All Sports (GCOAS)

Black
Gray
Brown (all shades)
Dark Green/Olive Green/ (shamrock Green is fine)
Dijon Mustard Yellow
Rust
Flo Anything
White with pure black numbers and piping, no accents
High School Gold that really isn't gold but looks like Yellow Trying to Hard
Cammo
Purple/White with no accents; needs yellow

I will also ban plexi helmet visors for football players -- but that is for another day.

Favorites?
Foils?
Am I alone in my dread?

I want to ban the gardener on the other side of the fence who's wearing a reflective high visibility vest.

I want to ban anybody who's wearing a reflective high visibility vest.

I want to ban the high visibility vest.

As far as jerseys go... There are certain oranges, reds, and greens that I don't like. These colors are the ones that are really sensitive to color correction, and under mixed lighting, these colors don't correct the same way twice. Or maybe I'm doing color correction all wrong. Please tell me if I am. Sometimes these colors make me want to put my fist through my monitor.

I totally relate to this. My son's kit was bright yellow shirts and black shorts last year. Their second kit was black on black. For me, an annoyance both aesthetically and exposure-wise. His new team this year is a blue top with red shorts, which looks great in photos, and requires much less tweaking in post.

Also, the only upside to fluorescent colors (which still doesn't condone them!) is that you can easily spot your team at a tournament when there are lots of fields spread around the complex! I remember this one gross fluorescent chartreuse team that looked just like a team full of keepers. GBH to the eyes indeed!

This is just a practice shot .... but I'll respectfully disagree -- if your team is named the Lions, Tigers, Panthers, Jaguars -- or Vampires -- these mouth guards are a-okay with me!

Agree. That's funny -- until you get leveled. Then not so funny!
