My son started playing PeeWee Flag football this year, and since the team’s playing field is only 2 minutes away from our home we have been to all the home games this spring. Last Saturday the seniors played and I had with me my camera (X-T1 + 18-55mm), just to get some shots of my boy running out on the field with the big players.
When the coach saw that i had a camera, he asked if I would like the photograph the whole game, so I ended up with my first sports photography gig!
Only having the 18-55mm with me, I couldn’t get close in on the action that day, but got some descent overview shoots of the game.
But this Saturday I came prepared, as the junior team was going against the neighboring town. I had with me the XF55-200mm, so I could get close in on the action!
