Football season

Football season kicked off a few weeks ago and I love it. Without question, football is my favorite mainstream sport to photograph.

The action is intense. The sidelines are electric. A victory can be monumental. A loss can be heartbreaking.

Right now, my longest glass is 200mm. That makes it a little tough to get all of the game action. With patience and years of practice, I’ve been able to snap a good frame or two. Here are a few from the season thus far.

Being stuck with a short lens, cropping can be a big help. Too bad my 1D Mark II has so much color noise when cropped in this tight.
