Photographing a Football Game In Front of 100,000 People

Yesterday was a fun day for me. I was able to follow Indiana State down to Knoxville, Tennessee and check something off of the bucket list. I have always wanted to watch a game in Neyland Stadium, and yesterday I was able to do that from field level. Before the game I spent some time making some photos of this iconic stadium. The photo above was one of my favorites from that walk around the stadium. I would have liked to have done this again when the crowd and teams were in the stadium, but it was not worth risking missing a big play for the Sycamores.

More To Come

Tomorrow I will have more on the game including a few of my favorite photos as well. As I sit in the press box and write this it looks like I will be lucky to be back in West Lafayette before this post goes live. Right now the emotions are running high, and I want to process this day a little before I write too much more about it. This was a fun day though, and it is the reason that I do what I do.

  1. Awesome! I’ve only ever been inside a couple of times, but I walk by it constantly. I’m glad you had a good experience taking photos, I’m sure it was a lot of fun to do!
