October 17: "The best laid plans of mice and men." Remember last post when I discussed planning for a shot? Well, I envisioned a shot, I planned for the shot, the play started to unfold to yield the shot, I didn't get "the" shot. I don't often shoot from the end zone at a high… Continue reading Close, but no cigar
October 15: "Close to the action" There's a lot to getting a good sports shot. Of course you need access to the field, but there's a lot more. You have to anticipate where the action will be.
