The Handoff

Football Handoff

Last week I had the opportunity to photograph at the 4A high school state football championship game between Timpview and Pineview. What a game. Timpview crushed their opponent, but it was a heck of a game to watch. I thoroughly enjoy sports photography and the challenge it presents. There is everything from anticipating plays and picking the best angles to dealing with challenging light and shadows that change throughout the game.

Today’s shot is one of many I was particularly happy with from the game. I was hired by some of the parents to catch shots of their boys in action that you simply cannot get with a point-and-shoot camera from the stands.
