Default Friday Night Lights

Hey, I managed to get out a second time this year. C&C always welcome.
1) FUMBLE!!!!!!!!


2) Running out of room


3. Turning the corner


4. This is how you make a hole into the endzone:


5. Intensity


6. Absorbing the hit


7. In your face (and almost in my lap):


8. Textbook tackle (anyone in the NFL paying attention?):


9. Bracing for....


10. A smack in the mouth!


11. Not such a text-book tackle:

Good to see you out shooting some more John..... now you just need to get a day game

Not sure which I like best, there is a good variety all with something of interest.

very nice John.

i really liked "intensity" and "in your face" great timing, and really nice that you can get such good facial detail at night, not an easy thing to do.

Thanks everyone. It was nice to be able to shoot my old high school for the first time in 5 or so years.

What flash are you using and how far away were the players? Let's say for pic#1. I'd like to have an idea what equipment (other than camera) is required to get this type of shot. thanks.
