Words To remember

”I think the best pictures are often on the edges of any situation, I don't find photographing the situation nearly as interesting as photographing the edges.” ~William Albert Allard.

The above quote by Photographer William Albert Allard is so true, and are words every serious photographer should keep in mind. So often when we are shooting we get so locked on what is in our viewfinder we forget to look around and check the peripherals.

Working with that thought, go early. There are moments that make great images before the first kickoff, or the opening speaker, or whatever.

Friday night I arrived at Anderson Stadium to see layers of smoke hanging in the lights. There are numerous grills cooking up food for the concession stands. The atmosphere was such that the smoke spread around but was between the lights and the ground.

This made for a cool photo during pregame warm-ups. Another shot was the cartwheeling cheerleaders.

While I was standing around I noticed the flag and the crescent moon. Keep your eyes open, and occasionally glance away from the viewfinder.
