Camera in hand I walked onto the field where in just a couple hours the Oregon Ducks would play against the Beavers in the 118th Civil War Game!
Not afraid to admit i was nervous, what if i missed the best shots, what if i got hit in the face with a ball or trampled by the whole team? Then the Ducks and Beavers took the field for the kick off and I raised my camera to my eye and became part of the game. I scanned the players and clicked the shutter. The bands played loud and the fans screamed for their fave teams and I was there right in the middle of it all. I forgot I was scared, I forgot I was cold, I forgot about everything else but what I was doing. Close up and personal through the camera lens with everyone from Marcus Mariota to Royce Freeman and I loved every second of my very first time and hopefully not my last time shooting an Oregons Ducks football game.
This is what it looked like through my eyes. I SHOT THE DUCKS!
