I think I will just let these speak for themselves. Enjoy.
Good light is good light. You know it when you see it. The photo above is one that I made while on another assignment at the court house. I am a sucker for a good shadow photo. As a matter of fact I kind of over use it throughout the year. It’s something that I am going to work at in 2010. Anyway on with the show.
I am going to start off with my best of 2009 with a collection of football photos. In 2009 I worked really hard to develop relationships with the coaches, staff and players of the schools that I cover on a regular basis. I shot essays on players that overcame disabilities to play. I showed coaches the respect they deserve by asking first for permission (you know who you are DP shooters) to enter the locker rooms before games. I worked the sidelines during the games for off the field moments. When teams took the field, I took the field along with them. I showed up early for practice and stayed late after games. And while none of the teams I covered made the playoffs I still put in a lot of effort and am looking forward to next season.
For the next couple of days, I will be posting my best of galleries. Each day I will post a collection of photos that I enjoyed making in 2009. They won’t be in any particular order and I may or may not have explanations of each photos. Stay tuned for more.
