Commack High School Varsity Football vs. Ward Melville
Short post today. I'm trying to catch up with lots of post-production work. I'm in the city tomorrow to shoot some staff portraits, so no catching up tomorrow.
One more tip for shooting football - a popular guideline for where to position yourself when shooting football is "10 yards in front of a good team and 10 yards behind a bad one." So, if you're only covering one team this translates to "10 yards in front of your team and 10 yards behind the opponent." The idea is that you want to get the faces of your team's players and the only way to do that is if they're moving toward you. This doesn't always work, especially with receivers who may or may not be looking back at you depending upon where the ball ends up, but for the most part it's good advice. If your team has the ball and they run they'll be coming toward you (hopefully on your side of the field). If the other team has the ball your team will be trying to sack the quarterback and/or stop a run so you want to be behind the opposing team.
