Boerne-Champion Soccer vs Abilene Wylie

I took the opportunity to shoot some soccer in daylight at the recent tournament hosted by Boerne-Champion high school. The team usually plays at 7PM, so even though it was an overcast day, it was better than being under stadium lights. Soccer is/was my sport so it was great to be there, vicariously wishing I was playing or even refereeing...yeah, even did that for 15 years at the amateur level.

A good tutorial on shooting soccer can be found on the Canon Professional Network by John McDermott, a Sports Illustrated soccer shooter for over 30 years.

(backgrounds, backgrounds, backgrounds....ugh, clean backgrounds are critical to great shots and I think there's only one decent background at the Boerne High School stadium. ;-)
