Day 293

ISO 100, 150mm, f/5.0, 1/1250 sec.

Day 293 - Head's Up

I have a confession, I know nothing about sports. Nothing. I'm pretty sure I could tell the difference between a basketball and a baseball, but beyond that, I am a sport's idiot.

This afternoon I went to watch the college's soccer teams play. Really didn't have a clue what was happening but I had a blast tracking and anticipating where the ball was going to be.

Maybe that is what sport's photography is all about.


  1. That's a great shot. I love that you caught the ball bouncing off his head with him in the air. When I took photos of Zach's team last Saturday, I just put it on auto sports and kept the lens pointed at Zach and the shutter release down. You get about 1,000 photos that way. Some are bound to turn out okay. Am I supposed to confess that?

  2. LOL
    Great action shot! I wouldn't know what's going on either.

  3. This is a great action shot, I love soccer and you really captured the essence! Who cares if you know nothing about sports, you know a thing or two about photography :-)
