So there were a few activities that students were involved in: chess, sack race, tug-o-war, running race, boys’ soccer, and girls’ volleyball. At the field, the crowd was lively. This time, I took some photography practice as a sport photographer. What I need is a telephoto lense to capture players’ facial expressions and more up close. I felt honored that I was able to be inside the field, the restricted area that only soccer players, coaches, and a camera guy (me!) are allowed to be inside the fence. I was concerned that the ball would hit me at any moment, but the important part was to capture the moment. When the ball started to come towards me, this was the chance, the only moment, that I could capture some good shots of player’s faces.

I enjoyed taking photographs using sports mode. It did take me a while to get used to. I’m just an amatuer.
