Shootin’ some Monday Night Football Tonight! (and it’s contest time!)
OK, I am super psyched because tonight I'll be shooting on the sidelines at the Monday Night Football Game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Denver Broncos at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, alongside my buddies Michael Benford and Matt Lange.
Monday Night Football is a grand sports tradition here in the US and it's broadcast nationwide (as it’s the only pro football game that airs on Monday nightâ”-all the rest play on Sunday). I know a lot of you will be watching, so I thought I would post this shot of me wearing pretty much what I’ll be wearing tonight (with black kneepads) and the beige vest and al — that way if you see a photographer get creamed by a receiver on the sidelines (or if Peyton Manning breaks my monopod), you’ll be able to tell if it’s me they’re carting off. ;-)
Let's make it interesting with a “Scott Spotting Contest”
The first three people who take a photo of their TV Screen where you can see me, and post it, or a link to it, it either to my Facebook page (link), Tweets me with the photo (link), or posts it to my Google+ page (link) gets a signed copy of my new book, "Photoshop CS6 for Digital Photographers."
Where I'm likely to be on the field:
I generally shoot from these two areas:
(1) The End Zone (there's less chance of refs, the chain gang, video crews, and the guy with the giant blue parabolic mic walking in front of your shot)
(2) Between the 15 yard line and the goal line.
If I get flattened by a player during the game, the first person to visit me in the hospital (besides my wife), gets my entire Photoshop and Photography book library. I'm hoping we don't have a winner for this one.
Can't wait to share the shots with you guys (provided I get any decent ones), but tomorrow is the long-awaited “Life after Drobo” post so it’ll have to wait. Have a great Monday, and we'll see you tonight. Well, you know what I mean. :) GO FALCONS!!! #RISE UP!!!
