This was a rough game to shoot as the team I cover lost more yards in penalties then they did running the ball. Now I know that might be a exaggeration, but its pretty close. When this happens it's tough to get quality action shots since moving the ball is almost stopped. I did get some nice shots, but not the shots I want at the end of a game.
This was our first home preseason game.
You never know what the game will bring, so I like to grab some warm-up shots prior to game time. This allows me to get shots of players who don't see game time, or shots at angles I normally wouldn't get. In this case it helped as the team I covered had issues with moving the ball forward, which made getting the action tough. So by shooting some pregame warm-up, I was able to get some great action.
Just something to think about when your shooting a game.
