I've enjoyed photographing active people for a while now. Usually, it's just my kids at play or in their youth sports leagues. This year, I wanted to step it up a notch and shoot some athletes that are a little faster, more organized, and more predictable, so I approached the football coach of our kids' high school (also my alma mater) about roaming the sidelines during a game. I'd get some fun experience, and the school would get free photos that were hopefully good enough to use for something. He loved the idea. This past weekend, my availability finally coincided with one of the home games, so I got my first taste of shooting Friday night lights.
