Bear with me. This is going to be fairly long.
Logan's game on Saturday was flippin' COLD! And this is Texas, by jove! At game time (10:30am), the temp was 43F with a wind chill of 35F. The wind was the killer part. We had gusts of 40+ miles per hour. I was amazed that they didn't call off the games - at least the early morning ones and maybe for the little kids, but they didn't.
It kinda worked to my advantage though. So often, my soccer shots are cluttered with the game on the field next to us and their spectators. But most of the fields were empty when we got there and only a handful of folks braved the cold to watch. So I guess that's the silver lining.
I got so many shots that I love this week and I just couldn't wait to share them with you guys:
All shots were taken at 200mm with my 18mm-200mm lens. Iso = 100 and aperture = f/5.6
ss=1/500, this is Logan celebrating his goal!
But my absolute favorite of the day (and maybe my favorite soccer shot ever) is this one:
Logan and Carlos both love it as well. Carlos asked for this to be the prime shot for a new soccer poster for his office. So Logan sat down with me and we looked at some soccer posters and wallpapers of his favorite soccer players for inspiration. Eventually, Logan picked this one of a midfielder for Barcelona/Spain named David Villa:
and here is my take on it with Logan's photo:
Logan loves it and so do Carlos and I! We'll be getting some nice big prints to hang in our offices and in Logan's room too.
Anyway ... like I said, I just had so many great shots, I just couldn't wait to share them wit you guys.
