Penn State Football v. U Md

I was invited by Athletics to be “Guest Coach” for a game and chose Maryland. It was a cold and blustery day, gray with occasional sunshine. An interesting experience for me, to be sure, sitting in on team meetings and meals over Friday and Saturday. Photographically, I borrowed a friend’s D300 with grip in order to get the greater frames per second. The sensor is not as good as the D7000, but I hoped the FPS would outweigh that. And I think it would have if I had been more comfortable with the set up. These shots aren’t too bad, but I lost focus on many, just simple user error. It is great to have that frame rate though!

PSU vs. Navy

It was the second home game of the Bill O’Brien era and the first win. Penn State was playing Navy and it was Military Appreciation Day. Overall, a very moving day.

“Teammates”

Last weekend my son’s team played in a tournament and did very well. The lighting under the trees was perfect for portraits after the games but…trying to get 6-8 year olds to cooperate is a bit of a challenge.

In this photo my boy is in the middle with two brothers on either side. I really love the expressions in this shot. It looks like something from a Rolling Stone shoot of the new up and coming something. Look for it in ESPN the Magazine soon!
