Shorter days, longer shadows
I traveled with the Riverside Brookfield varsity football team to its game at Elmwood Park this evening as part of my continued, season-long project. Before the buses departed, the team met for a pregame meeting and while they were busy with that, I killed some time by climbing to the top of a set of bleachers and shot a youth football team practicing in the early evening sunlight on a nearby field.
Fall is a great time to shoot photos. Great light. Colorful surroundings. Long, dramatic shadows. The group of youngsters above were running sprints as their coach barked commands. I was keeping one eye on these guys and another on the team I was actually there to document. I’ll likely upload a photo or two from that shoot in the coming days.
