Mike and I finished celebrating his birthday this Saturday at a really good brunch place not too far from our home. After we ate, Mike and I went our separate ways - physically, not emotionally. He headed out to the burbs to work on his dad's car, and I walked around that area for a bit.
I was scouting locations for next weekend's photo shoot. I am still incredibly nervous that's it's going to be incredibly cold. I needed to find an alternate location in case it snows. It may very well snow. Thankfully I found a suitable, but not ideal location, and was able to somewhat put my mind at ease.
I of course brought my camera and wandered a bit. My photography go to safety shots have always been plant life or intimate objects. They're easy. They don't move, so I usually have time to compose a good shot. So of course, I got these shots.
Nearby this same park was a football field with about four pee wee teams playing and running through drills. I get a little nervous taking photos of people in public, even though they are in public place. I'm never sure if I may be crossing some boundary. I figured this was a good opportunity to practice getting high speed action shots, so I put away my discomfort and starting shooting.
Turns out I'm totally a sport's photographer. Well that may be stretching it, but I was glad to have stepped out of my comfort zone for the moment. I like adding new shots to my portfolio.
Ed Note: I'm annoyed because I can't figure out how to make my photos larger and remain sharp. If you click on the photos though, you can see a larger image.
