About Me

My photo
Long Beach, California, United States
Welcome to my blog. Looking through my posts you will find that I love and have a passion for photography and although my expertise so to speak is in Sports Action, I have been getting into wildlife and senior portraits. No matter what I'm shooting I want to bring my client the best possible shot I can and give them / you a photograph that you will cherish for a lifetime. If your looking for someone to capture your child in action, to show the intensity and emotion in which your child plays, look no further. Just drop me a line (e-mail) at homerkenpo@aol.com. I cover most areas in Southern Califoria.

Lakewood Freshmen Football vs Millikan

This marks the last game of the season for both the freshmen and JV teams. To even things out I decided to cover the freshmen game at home.

Ok, for those who follow my posts will know that I favor and will almost always use my 300 f/2.8 lens for my sports shooting, but there are times when the action just gets too close. Before you think that I am going to break down and use another lens your wrong. I have no problems bringing the action in tighter and showing some detail. In the below shot you'll see just that. When the team gets withing the 20 yard line I will position myself at the end zone upright, putting me right in the middle of the field. This way I can get action coming directly at me or to the sides. Now if a pass is made to the corner of the end zone then I will usually attempt to shoot horizontal and get the upper portion of the player and outreached arms, which you see below. For me - I think it works, but you be the judge.
