I decided to take some time last Tuesday evening to shoot the men’s soccer match between Boston University and Holy Cross. This was the first sporting event I’ve covered at BU, so I thought this would be a good chance to break myself in.
The light was pretty bad, and tough to work with given the lenses I had. Sometimes, though, you’ve got to work with what you’re given, so that’s what I tried to do here. I overexposed on purpose quite a bit. That gave some of my frames a nice graphic, almost comic book feel to them.
I’m sure I’ll be shooting plenty more athletic events as the year goes on!
