Indiana State Finally Comes To Me
So far this fall it really has been the fall for travel. It seems like every gig is two hours away. Terre Haute, Bloomington, South Bend, and LaPorte are all about the same distance. It was nice when one of my teams finally came to where I live. A quick commute down the road was all that it took to cover the game.
Changing Up The Plan
I usually have a small game plan when photographing a game. Early on you could see that Purdue was controlling the ball. I quickly moved towards midfield to get a little closer to the action. I rarely shoot from that position, but it let me get the shots that I needed. It actually worked out very well for me as I was able to get some good shots of the defenders and the goalie this way.
Photographing Purdue By Reflex
The weird thing about the day was not photographing Purdue. There were a couple of moments though when I reflexively pointed my camera at the Boilermakers. When I am at Folk Field I photograph Purdue. It was a little weird walking the other way to start the game. One thing that I have learned over the last couple of years though is that once the whistle blows you rarely think about what team you are photographing. Except for a couple of slip ups my camera was trained on ISU the entire game.
The Week In Photos
This game pretty much ended a fun week of making photos. It started off with the eclipse, and it ended with a weekend which saw me shoot four Indiana State games in three days. You can see some of my favorite photos from the week here.
