This is a good example of why I enjoy shooting soccer. Capturing the skill of the players along with the expressions.

Hi all.

portrait I did of my son, who was goalie for his U9 Rec team, and won their Spring championship, which was a nail biter by the way lol. Tied 2 - 2. Went into 5 minute overtime. Still tied. Then they did the 5 player penalty kicks. His team scored 3 more points, and he stopped every one of the other team's kicks.

My first go at soccer. Game was delayed three hours for weather and then abandoned at half. I did the best I could in the conditions and with the gear I had, pushing it beyond its capabilities.

I'm not sure if this is allowed in this thread but I'll try. I photographed the high school seniors on the soccer team for banners and an attitude photo. They were photographed indoors (hallway) and then placed into these backgrounds. CC is welcome.

Banner:

Attitude:

The banners were printed on vinyl, 2'x5', and the attitude on photo paper, 10"x30".

Overall, I like them Voaky, but I would raise the ever present question of how much editing should be done in post?
Pics 2 and 3 show large areas of skin movement on the white players thighs, am I alone in thinking this should smoothed out, rather than left?
Accuracy Vs aesthetics is always an issue with female athletes/models and I'm genuinely interested in anyone's take on this.
I would always "fix" this before posting, as I feel were not in the business of making people feel self/body conscious.

But it's "fixing" people's real bodies... or making them think that it needs to be fixed that makes people body conscious.

I don't understand what you are talking about. It's a football match not a glamour shoot. And just think of all the post processing that would have been needed on Peter Beardsley.


I've just caught my wedding vegetables in the flange!!!

Interesting, I don't worry too much about skin movement, it happens sometimes. What does concern me is the facial expression. I avoid posting shots where the athletes faces look peculiar (heading excluded as no looks good heading a ball). In my ten odd years of posting sports shots I have only had two complaints, a tennis shot where the top had ridden up exposing a belly button (female) and a photo of two very animated wrestling coaches (male) yelling advice at their athlete. Thanks for the feedback, Don
