Highlands High School Girls Varsity Soccer – 08-22-2011

08.30.11

I shot my boy’s soccer games for close to 10 years collecting an image library of thousands upon thousands of shots. After shooting all those soccer games one would think I’ve had my share of soccer but when a friend of mine asked me to shoot the Highlands varsity girls I jumped right on it. Of course I didn’t realize it was an 8:00 pm game! Nothing like testing the old skills under the lights. Shooting at night really boosts my respect for pro sports shooters. For those of you with any understanding of photography, I was shooting a good part of the second half at ISO 2500. Thanks to Canon’s CMOS sensor on my 5D Mark II there wasn’t a huge grain (noise) issue. Though it’s not the fastest Canon for sports, the full-frame helps with tighter crops. So much for the photography mumbo-jumbo. I try to keep my blog on the lighter side, without a bunch of technical junk, so sorry for getting off topic!

I hope to get to some additional games this season, so if you or someone you know has any interest in me shooting for “your” team, drop me an email and if I have the time available I’d love to shoot some more games.

Here’s the entire gallery. Enjoy!

Final score, NCC 3, Pendelton County

I was so excited about this game. I just bought a 2x converter that would take my 70-200 lens to 140-400. My “long” shots have been lacking detail so I thought this new purchase would help.

My excitement disappeared in the first few minutes of the second half when Andrew had a collision when going up for a header! So much for my new lens… we had a trip to the hospital to make. 16 stitches later we went to Hooters for wings, per Andrew’s request!

I try to be fair when posting the “Cover” photo for these posts and not use my son’s photo for every entry. I mean he’s just one player in a team of many, so why highlight him, right? Well not today. Today’s post is dedicated to “Boogs” for his “taking one for the team”. Andrew may not be the best player on the team but one thing Betsy and I have always been proud of him for is that he gives it absolutely everything he possibly can. What more could we possibly ask of him?

Boogs, this one’s for you! Especially the last nine shots in the gallery!
