Let me Have a Look at that Hand...

-----
I've been learning sports photography, little by little. I like to watch football, but have certainly not learned enough to be able to predict the next play. And that puts me at a decided disadvantage, trying to follow the action with my lens. But I am learning.
----
Somehow I knew where the ball was for this capture of high school football in Philadelphia. Or, I got lucky!

Terrific action shot, Michelle! Sports photography would be great fun, I'd think, but I'm quite sure it's very difficult to do.

Wow! What an awesome capture, Michelle! You timed it perfectly! I doubt luck had anything to do with it ... well, maybe a little. Ha! Ha! This image is good enough to be on a Sports Illustrated cover! ... You'll have to start photographing the Big Leagues though! Wonderful colour, clarity, detail and action! Excellent work! :)

Having been a sports photographer for decades it is all about knowing the sport first, watching where the action is going to be, getting down low as you can, hoping for bright sunlight to be able to use lower ISO and higher shutter speed, fast burst speed as possible and shear luck. Nice action capture, Michelle.
