HOSTED PHOTO

A phenomenal one handed catch turned this game around Friday night in the area playoffs here in East Texas. Down 10-0, this kid went up and hauled in this pass and galloped into the end zone. The play electrified the stadium and rallied the team to 14-10 victory and propelled them into the next round of playoffs. Always nice to be at the right place at the right time.

I use Canon gear...have several bodies and lenses and am quite pleased with them.

Interesting that you crop to square for presentation.

Funny you mention that...I had posted one of the the original shots from the game straight out of the camera on a sports photojournalist FB page...and got 'critiqued' for too much dead space to the right to the play. lol It all happened so fast as you might imagine so I was just thrilled to have captured the main event ...in focus. Was shooting with a 400 so framing the pic during the play was not an option. And having got the whole sequence, the square format worked.

Thanks
Tony

"Framing the pic during the play was not an option"?

Work at it and you'll be doing it as the play develops so you have the camera oriented the way you want and the action framed well as it happens. Practice, anticipation and a bit of luck all play a part with practice, skill and anticipation playing much more into it than luck.

Years back on NFL sideline shooting with a friend who took NFL photog of the year we were talking about his shot that took top honors in a Hall of Fame photo contest. In it you see the players going for the ball. Great composition, perfect action and exposure dead on - and 5 or more photographers in the background on the other sideline standing and watching it. Not one was watching through the lens. If so they would have had some excellent images.

Too many I worked with and see don't follow the game through the lens. As a result they lose focus on what they are doing much of the time. Not all, but most I have watched as they photograph sports.
