The Band

I covered three football games this year, plus one additional half time show and the pep rally, so needless to say I've shot a lot of the marching band. They are an impressive group that do excellent work. Photographing them, though, is somewhat of a challenge.

I'm field level when I shoot the band, and I usually have the 80-200 on, so the opportunity to show both the large numbers of performers or the different movements and walking-around-the-field-display the band does is difficult. So, my band photos usually turn out to be portraits of the drum majors or the performers who happen to be in the front row of the field show.

Though it does make for some cool shots with depth of field.
