Above is a video slideshow of the Marian Knights versus St Joseph Indians football game held on 9/1/2017 at Marian in Mishawaka, Indiana. The game was a rivalry match up between two local catholic high schools. I tried to capture some of the fan energy in a couple photos.
It was my first time photographing a high school football game and it was a pretty enjoyable experience. I used a 2x teleconverter on my 70-200mm lens to get me the reach needed from beyond the end-zone. I’m hoping for better access for the next time as there is only so much you can compose into a photo taken from an end-zone. Due to the speed of the game, along with the lens I had, I limited the shutter to shoot no slower than 1/500th of a second – which pushed the ISO up to some perceptible graininess when the sun went down. But noise is preferred over motion blur and that’s what I did.
