I absolutely loved shooting sports this year. Being on the field and court made me feel like I was part of the action. There's no better feeling than being prepared with the right equipment, in the right place, with the right settings, and then getting lucky with the action falling into my frame. I love that.
Here are my favorite Sports shots of 2011. Everything from Football to Women's Rugby.
Game winning catch against Utah State - Here's the video
BYU Offensive Coordinator Brandon Doman yelling at Jake Heaps and the BYU offense. Interesting photo, now that Heaps has transferred to Kansas. It's rumored he left the team because of a strained relationship with the coaching staff and players. Rumored.
These last two were Kyle Van Noy's forced fumble and recovery at the Ole Miss game. It was the game winning touchdown. I still learned a valuable lesson that day. Always know how much space you have on your memory card. This was the last frame I got of the play because I ran out of space! Here's the link to the video of the play.
I love this shot because it shows Bronco Mendenhal's love for his players.
