A Look at the Future

Photo of the Day

Saturday I was on the field photographing the Purdue football game for the first time. I have photographed many other Purdue sports from the sidelines, but this was my first chance to photograph this close to the action. It was really nice because it was homecoming, and we had a MAC opponent in town. That should mean an easy victory, but this Purdue squad is still finding it’s way. There are many bright spots though. One of them is true freshman Danny Etling who basically only played the second half of the game, and still nearly broke a Purdue freshman passing record. His passes had some zip on them. He will be fun to photograph the rest of this season. More photos from my day can be found here on my Facebook page.

Coming Out Firing

Photo of the Day

Last night the Purdue Football team played a great game under the lights at Ross Ade Stadium. Most people did not give them a chance, but they came out with something to prove.

I went to the top of the stadium to get a different shot. I actually thought that being in the scoreboard would have been great last night. With the black and gold scheme by sections and the setting sun I…

Photo(s) of the Day

Saturday I was lucky enough to be on the sidelines of the college football game between the St. Joseph’s Pumas and the Valparaiso Crusaders. The purpose of my visit was to try and get some pictures that I cannot get from the stands at a game. What I found during the course of the game was how much the eyes in the pictures mattered. I would love a shot, but then the eyes would make it pop even more to me. I spent most of the game down on a knee if not lower to make the players appear even taller.

Because of the harsh sun I brought back some of the highlights and shadow detail, but other than that not much was done here. I love how easy sports images are to edit.
