This week is California and soccer

A weekend watching tennis in Mount Vernon, Iowa.  Beautiful town, great group of young men.  I enjoyed the tennis and the time with each of you.

 

This weekend I will be heading to California to watch the Liverpool ECNL 00/99 boys play in a college showcase tournament. I am sure there will be incredible photos since the quality of play will be outstanding. 

 

My website is up and running.  Please let me know if you have any issues.

 

And, finally, the photography tip of the week.  Sports photography is all about timing and understanding the nature of the sport you are photographing.  Take the time to learn the timing of the action and then practice watching the action through the lens.  If you try to hold the camera and move it up to your eye, chances are you’ll miss the shot…and never forget about the lighting.  If possible, keep the light source behind you so it is lighting up the action.
