POD: Photograph A Day / Day# 45
– 9/28/11 –
Tonight, I shot a varsity soccer game for the very first time, and it was hard! Having covered baseball during the summer and football for the past month, I was uncertain about the rhythm of the game but I soon found out. FAST. The ball traveled from one end of the field to the other in seconds – and players moved about rapidly. My instructors advice came to mind as I shot…’you’re going to want to just pick a place on the field to cover and forget chasing the ball’. I’m paraphrasing, but that is essentially the just of it – and it was sound advice. For the most part, I zeroed in on particular ‘zones’ and watched for player’s reactions.
