Just For The Fun Of It

I’m so used to having to prepare to shoot sporting events… Are the equipment cases packed? Camera case? Remotes case? Rain gear case? Any special gear? Where’s that checklist? Where am I going? What’s the plan? What shots do I want to get out of it? How am I going to do it? Where am I going to shoot from?

So sometimes it’s really refreshing to be on the way out the door to, say, Jake’s flag football practice, and, just for grins, grab a 5D and a 300/4 off the shelf. No expectations, no reason. Just toss it in the front seat and hope for some nice light. Sometimes you get so wrapped up in doing this for a living that it’s really easy to forget about doing it because you love to.

    Really enjoyed the great shots. Do you think it was your 6th sense that knew the light would be perfect & grab the camera? And,

    I’ve only passed through the panhandle and it’s nice to know that you can smell fall down there like I can up here in Toledo.

Where Am I?
