20 years after winning a State Championship my Alma Mater has hopes of winning another.

Let me know what you think. Thanks.

This one is a great tackle shot.

Well done. Though I hope his knee is ok.

It may be my monitor, but these look underexposed....

they might be a little UE. It was sunny with lots of Shade. I went down 2/3, when i didn't a lot of the bright spots were blown out. Something I need to work on.

You probably don't want to hear this but if you are going to improve, you should consider my comments as an attempt to help. I'm not sure there's really a keeper in this series. Some of the issues are correctable, some not and some may be due to gear limitations (since I have no idea what glass you shot these with). They are underexposed, horizons are off in some, focus seems soft in others. Action is decent in a few but not really peak other than the hit and unfortunately on that one, your position didn't allow for the best image impact. Also backgrounds..you gotta pay attention to those as they can kill an otherwise good image. Composition could be fixed with some crops in most but is on the weak side.

That's the bad of it but I wouldn't bother to offer any advice if I didn't think there's potential here. Bottom line, I think you need to think a lot more about the images you are making since these seem like you just put it in Av and fired away. Really think about every shot. You only have a split second in most cases so much of that has to happen in preparation whether it be camera settings, or shooting locations. Think of plays that are likely to be run and try to position accordingly. Football offers you so much opportunity to do that since you have breaks in the action all the time. Camera settings are just what they are and can usually be dialed in early on and then just tweaked. Look at you in camera histogram for guidance. Lastly, timing, this is just practice, practice, practice. Better composition will come with better timing and better cropping will help in post as well. Again, think about what plays are likely to be run in any circumstance and be prepared. For instance, if you have a 3rd and 6 with a team that has a strong passing QB, its safe to assume he's throwing. If you want/need shots of the QB, setup to capture that, if you want the receivers, don't try to get the QB throwing, a block at the line, and the reception downfield since chances are you'll miss the action you really want.

Again, take this as constructive crit, not a slam even though my initial comments didn't have any real bright spots. Shoot lots, think lots when your shooting and I think you'll see things improve. Best of luck and keep posting images, its the best way to see what's right and what's not.

I appreciate the feedback. I will continue to put in work. I do some of the stuff you mentioned but I will get out there and keep what you said in mind.

No offense taken. I thought I had some nice shots but nothing that had me thinking WOW.
