Hey look at those cheerleaders...
Crisp eyes on the defense
and the offense
Capturing the battle on the ground
Touchdown! But not ours. This was one of those (rare) times that being tight, then getting tighter would lose the sense of location on the field and make this just another catch.
Did I mention it rained?
Then the lightning kicked in and the stadium had to clear out until it was safe again...
But the dedicated returned in good spirits
I finally nailed the timing on these, however, they lack the faces. Notes made for positioning during the next game.
There was a 4th quarter rally, but time was out before the Sycamores could come back.

All in all shooting football in the rain was a fun experience, the clouds when the sun was up helped diffuse the light so the helmets did not create harsh shadows, making it much easier to get the eyes, and when it was pouring the rain helped add another dimension to both the game and the photos. Next time though, proper rain gear; not the last minute DIY stuff.
