Black & White Photography

      

Flying Through The Defense

      

Time for Fall Youth Sports Photography.

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve started in with shooting some youth soccer and football. I’m also hoping to get in some cross country action as well. Doing this type of photography I greatly enjoy. For one thing, these are among the sports that I played while growing up; you know, back in the ancient days…

Having played the games helps to anticipate what the action might be and where. Sometimes you can get surprised but in most cases, as you follow the action, you can capture some pretty good moments. Just like this one. I didn’t notice that the offensive player’s feet was off of the ground when I took this photo but I think it adds to the image. Hence the title…

Youth sports provides great action shots for anyone with a camera and when you capture a really good one, not only the player or players involved like the image, but so do the parents and grand parents – like me… :-)
