Lakewood JV Football vs Jordan

Not a lot to say about this game other than I really hate going to cover a game at Jordan High School. I understand all about school security and the safety of the students, but man do they make it completed to get into the school and then get on the field. I made the mistake of leaving an extra battery in my car and wouldn't you know I needed it by the end of the second quarter, so during half time I had to walk all the way out through the front of the school and then through a side parking lot to the back of the school where my car was parked to get it. Thank goodness someone on the school's staff was going onto the campus when I was ready to come back in.

Any hoot, since out team was on the side facing the sun I shot from Jordan's side, which helped a bunch and allowed for much better shots.

Although it was a bright sunny day, I did end up shooting manual during this game due to the high contrast difference from the two teams uniforms. Lakewood was in all white while Jordan had navy blue jersey's and black pants. I wanted to balance the exposure for both uniforms and was very happy with what I ended up with.

A few shots I thought had that b&w look to them.
