West Aurora High School hosted its annual preseason kickoff for the linemen of area football teams, "The Battle of the Big Butts."
On most assignments my flash stays tucked away in my bag, as I prefer to take advantage of the natural light surrounding the events I am there to cover. This time though I wanted to change it up a bit and light the players. I used my flash aimed straight ahead and zoomed all the way in to extract as much power from it as possible. The photos came out with a completely different feel than what the previous years photos had, which was my goal, and it was fun experimenting with the natural and artificial light sources.
