Hi everyone. I am trying to put together a portfolio of my sports shots and I am suffering one of those self-awareness crises to where I am questioning if I am good enough to work for a paper/team/agency somewhere in the sports field. Please let me know what I can improve on, your thoughts, anything really, it is much appreciated. Thanks.

I will post a few of what I think is my best work. The rest can be seen here: http://www.jafferino.c​om/Portfolio/thebest/ (external link)

3 and 4 sure. 1 and 2 do nothing for me. ;)

Thanks! Any reasons why?

I try to find the moments beyond the action that tell a story too so that is why those are in there.

That's cool, but the photo should tell the story all by itself.

To me, #1 says - "Oh! Cool tune!", #2 says ?, I dunno! It doesn't say anything to me. :D

"We lost, that sux", "I'm hungry", "I've got a rock in my shoe".

Got it! I guess it is just in my eyes the emotional tension of both. Thanks for the input.

Yeah it is a bit soft in the colors, I should probably boost the saturation a bit. Thanks for the comments.

I wouldn't. You're shooting through rain, that's the way it looks! :D

for news print - try to show goals, TD, scores and celebrations. The online galleries can show the game action.

agree with others on the great action shots. number 1 looks pretty cool too, nonchalant and careless.

I agree that 3 and 4 catch the effort and emotion, of the two 4 is the better.
