Football season is over. Though I might complain about sports sometimes, football is actually my favorite — I love the emotion and glory and American-ness of it all. I've been at The News Leader for about a month now, and throughout this, my boss has been battling Nikon to send back my work camera — not his favorite task. This means I'm still using my own gear in the meantime, and I've been shooting football with my 70-200mm. Because I've mostly shot college ball, which is much more restrictive when it comes to access, a 300mm is what I'm used to. But with the nature of high schools and the access we get, the 70-200 is so perfect and I think my shooting has actually improved a bit from what it used to be.
