Dual assignments for shooting Floyd’s 14-13 come from behind victory over Lebanon in the state semi-final football tournament. Since Lebanon is down in the far western corner of the state, the Bristol Herald-Courier, a sister publication to The Floyd Press in the Media General chain, asked for photos.
It’s been a while since I shot on a daily newspaper deadline and darkness fell on the studio as I readied six prints to transmit to the chief photographer in Bristol. They used one in the web story (left) of Luke Harris getting tackled but I haven’t seen the print edition yet.
The Roanoke Times coverage includes several excellent photos from Justin Cook.
Floyd will meet Gretna in the state final at 4:15 p.m. Saturday in Salem Stadium.
That was a huge lens you were using. Was it some kind of super zoom?
Not a zoom, just one of the sharpest telephoto lenses around. It’s my favorite lens for shooting outdoor sports.
…what does a lens like that cost?
Good to see you back on your feet
