Victory at 1600
More from my on going project to document Riverside Brookfield’s first season under new head coach Jason Rech. The team and coach got their first win of the season Friday, beating up on an over matched Elmwood Park. If you shoot high school football on Friday nights, you have to assume you’ll be shooting at least a good portion of the games at an ISO of 1600 because there’s very little light to work with and the people you’re trying to focus on are moving pretty fast.
With my six year old cameras, that can create some images that are pretty “grainy” but I don’t care. I’m not trying to win any sports shooter awards. I’m focusing much more on documenting the little moments around the game that occur throughout the season. With some action photos mixed in of course.
I wanted to be there for the first win, and it worked out well as the team soaked it in like a Super Bowl championship. That’s why high school athletics can be fun to document. Victories of all sorts can mean so much.
