2011-10-02 Lots o’ sports

I’m taking a sports photo class with William Snyder, former DOP of The Dallas Morning News. I was hesitant to take the class, since I’ve never been that interested in sports. However, I figured that since my timing is crap and my backgrounds are lacking, taking the class could help. And there is the fact that I knew I would get my butt kicked, but at the time that wasn’t in the “pros” column for taking the class.

Turns out I love photographing sports. It’s a game. It’s fun and fast paced. But, there is some predictability to it. You start figuring out ways of doing things, and you get to fine tune them. This isn’t to say that you should get into a rut/routine when doing sports. It’s important to constantly be trying to do new things, but there is certainly some order. I prefer a fine line between order and chaos.

Anyway, here are several assignments I’ve done. Two football games and three hockey games. All of the hockey took place this weekend.
