It has rained for hours and hours but the game and Senior Night must go on.
A little preparation is in order however! A large plastic bag and a girls hair squshy work well.
But they do little to keep the photographer 'dry'. The EOS 1D Mk IV and its ef 24-70mm f2.8L II is weather proof and I guess I am too. Oh, it was only 40 degrees just to make it interesting.

I am in HK where torrential rain is very common during the typhoon season. Same solution works for me, a plastic bag camera cover - though I also have a plastic bag photographer cover as well. - Actually I have a very light weight Patagonia jacket that rolls up really small and also a couple of emergency plastic ponchos from 7-11.

Gear Canon 5DIII + Fuji X-T2 + lenses + a plastic widget I found in the camera box.

OK, here is a couple more. The half time show went on! And of course the 'Banner" was played and honored.

Creative idea! (That's not always a good thing!?) ; )

How 'bout some action photos from the game?


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on your point of view, I am the 'Arts' photographer. The sports side has their own people for that job.
I did do a substantial amount of tutoring a couple of the Yearbook students with their shoots but I have yet to see any of them. I let a 100 lb high school girl use my Mk IV and Sigma 150-600mm S lens. Quite amusing I must say but she was thrilled and very eager to tackle it. :lol:


There seems to be a little animosity if you cross the lines so I tread carefully most of the time. Unless personally asked.
