Toeldo Football on ESPN

Sorry for the lack of posts, I have been swamped with school and football and shooting and I am just getting around to updating the blog.

Wednesday night football on ESPN! Last night I got the opportunity to shoot the University of Toledo vs. Akron Zips at the Rubber Bowl in Akron, Ohio. I was quite excited to shoot college football because I haven’t been able  to for a while due to work and school and me also playing for Toledo (#8 Kicker).

Perrysburg vs. AW Football

Back to shooting more high school football. Its starting to get old fast as the teams I have been covering are horrible or all they do is run the ball and it makes for the same old imges over and over and…… Well I guess this game wasn’t to bad because of the beautiful dark blue sky. I wanted to get something kind of cool of Perrysburg, runing out on to the field that included the sky I was thinking about getting a low angle but I haven’t done a bunch of those lately so I thought it was time to mix it up.

Otsego Homecoming

 

Another week of covering high school football. This time I didn’t have to cover two games so I could focus on getting feature shots a long with good action. I was assigned to cover Otsego High school homecoming game. I had to get there extra early to shoot homecoming court mug shots! That was a joy, all the girls were freaking out to make sure they looked good enough and yadi yadi yada…. So I sat around editing some images for a while and then headed over to a local ice cream shop to get s chocolate milk shake before the game started. After a good conversation with the cute girl at the ice cream shop it was time to head back to the school to find my rock star parking spot and head out to the field.

Lights, Camera, Football!

Let the games begin! Not the Olympics, High School Football! I started out the night driving an hour to Clyde, Ohio to shoot Eastwood  vs. Clyde. I got there a little early so I could shoot some feature photos because I knew when I got to the 2nd game of the night there would be no time to shoot features. As soon as I got there I found a parking spot and got to work. I was very surprised to find out that Clyde just had Field Turf installed a few weeks before, shooting on field turf makes shooting the game a little more enjoy able because there aren’t as many bugs but the downside is after running around and walking for a while your socks and shoes fill up with the little rubber pellets and it gets annoying!
