I had a great experience today. I was given the opportunity to photograph the Pittsburgh Steelers and Detroit Lions joint practice at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe Pennsylvania. I’ll also be shooting their preseason game on Friday night, but capturing images of the practice was cool. It’s a different environment from the games and it was great getting to experience it.
As most people know, I’m a Lions fan. Unfortunately, watching the teams practice against each other today, showed me how much better the Steelers are compared to the Lions. I’d like to say it was the other way around, but…. That’s just not the case. The Steelers looked better in just about every drill. I’ll just have to hope this practice wasn’t an accurate reflection of how the Lions season will play out.
About this photo: As you can guess, it is the great Antonio Brown from today’s practice. It looks like a studio photo with the clean, clear background. But that’s just how it came out with a cloudless sky today. It’s not the typical sports photo, which is why I like it. What do you think? Do you like or dislike it?
