Photo of the Day
Early in the Purdue game yesterday Akeem Hunt finally broke the big run. He is one of my favorite players to photograph in the open field because of the angles he runs with. He always seems to be in a great position to make a picture. Yesterday he took off on a 62 yard touchdown run. As Hunt ran closer to me the 300mm I was shooting with became too much. Earlier in the day I purposely shot a basketball game with just the 300mm to try and break my bad habit of needing the entire body in the frame. Here it seemed to work out. By not tilting to get the whole body in I captured a Purdue coach in the bokeh cheering Hunt on. This is one of my favorite images of the year.
Here are some pictures from the game yesterday that I liked. I was trying out a 300mm f/2.8 lens that Sigma makes so I was trying some new things. I ended up with a lot of pictures that I really liked. I think that some big plays combined with a big lens led to what I think was my best football shoot of the year. The sad thing is that it was probably my last football shoot of the year.
