Last night I photographed the Leighton vs. Pleasant Valley football game. It was a very good game from the PV side. Lehighton put up a good fight and it was only 21-0 at halftime. But it was hard to stop the three-pronged attack of the PV quarterback Walling, receiver Irving, and running back Getz. Some incredible receptions and tough running yards kept the Indians on their heels most of the night.
Photographing football sure is different from baseball. For one thing, the game was at night so I had to really make adjustments for the lighting conditions. Secondly, the flow of the game is much different. Fortunately, I coached football for about nine years so this wasn’t all that bad for me, but it was different from photographing a baseball game. Being at the middle school game this past week was also helpful and prepared me well for this high school game.
You can check out the photos I captured at this football game here. And I included a few photos here in my blog entry, too.
