Jim Begley sent me a link to an article on Gizmodo that was one of the best articles on shooting football I’ve read.
The article was written by Rod Mar, a Seattle-based photographer working with the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks. First, he’s a really fantastic sports photographer, but beyond that, he’s a great writer and teacher as well, and his article has great examples and great insights.
So, definitely read the article first (here’s the link), but after you do, if you’re into this stuff you’ve got to check out his Seahawks photo blog, called “Eye on the Hawks.” I absolutely loved his images, and how he shares off field moments and images you don’t normally get to see. Very well done, and definitely worth checking out. Thanks Jim for sending this my way. :)
