What an awesome football game. Oregon came out prepared and it showed in all phases of the game. The rain couldn't dampen the great feeling of defeating Stanford.
Cal was expected to not have a very full stadium of their fans because of the World Series going on nearby. But, to their surprise, a lot of Duck fans made the trip and filled the majority of the stadium.
What an awesome victory for the Oregon Duck football team. The weather was perfect the entire game and the Ducks played well. There was much walking down memory lane at various points during the game.
The game gave me plenty of opportunity to shoot hi-speed action. It was definitely a loud game, one of the loudest yet for me. Even with that distraction, I was able to stay focused on testing my new gear.
This was my second water polo match to shoot. I had just finished the Sheldon girls match and stayed to take photos of the boys match. The boys play a bit faster and shoot the ball harder. Both goalies were kept pretty busy the entire match.
This was my first attempt to photograph a water polo game. I found the game interesting to watch and to photograph. Like any other sport, it helps to understand the basics of the sport.
Being to a major league park shooting a game was super neat. Just watching the activity in the park was cool. One thing I need to work on is taking photos of things other than the action. I have to admit that I was pretty focused on action shots.
On June 19, I traveled to Santa Clara, California for a Sports Photography Workshop. I was fortunate enough to have signed in right away as the workshop filled up quickly. The workshop was limited to 16 photographers. The event was hosted by Canon U.S.A. and led by Sports Illustrated photographer Peter Read Miller. Three sporting events were to be covered in the workshop - an International swim meet, an Oakland A’s/Boston Red Sox game, and a high school field hockey game.
Attending the Civil War volleyball made for an exciting evening. Oregon was undefeated and the Beavers had a record of 10 and 1. The setting for this game was different than most volleyball matches I have attended. For starters, the entire Oregon Marching Band was present in the West end of Matt Knight Arena.
Shooting photos at the Oregon-Michigan State football game was a highlight moment. This game was so hyped and had so much riding on it; it was exciting being on the field shooting the action.
