Redwood Sidelines

with 2 comments

Friday, January 20, 2012 | If the San Francisco Niners don’t beat the Giants this Sunday and win a ticket to the Super Bowl, this will be the last weekend I’ll be thinking about football until next season. That said, here’s another batch of photos from this year’s Redwood High School football games. (Larkspur, California)

While I enjoyed the action on the field, the sidelines were equally interesting. What I liked was that it reminded me of street photography, but with prior permission! Everyone at the games knows there are photographers around and that there’s a chance of being photographed. There’s no problem pointing a camera at someone, no issues around violating the social contract.

The team didn’t do well this year, as you can guess from the expressions on many faces near the end of the season. I’m already looking forward to next year when I hope they have better luck. If they control the ball more there will be more photos of the team on offense. All the photos from the season are on the VarsityPix web site. If you happen to be interested in photographing high school sports and live in California, you might want to visit the VarsityPix site and contact Bill Schneider. He’s the friendly CEO who will get you started.
