San Joaquin Delta Football

It’s been a while since I covered anything more than high school football so covering the San Joaquin Delta football game against De Anza was a nice change from the normal. I dont have anything against covering prep football I actually enjoy the freedom of the ability to do as you want and create some fun images.

This game I did want to do something a little different. I spoke to the photo editor about what I was trying to do and explained to him that I wanted to try and get some photos using Instagram for the paper to use on their online gallery. I could tell he was a little hesitant about doing so but since he is a Facebook friend I told him to keep an eye out on my page and let me know if he would of liked me to caption them and send them his way.

(Please Visit the link on the bottom for instagram photos. Due to their policy change I no longer support them and I removed my images)

And some came out a little grainy…but thats not user error just the sensor on a Droid phone not having the ability to compensate for the extreems and I think this is where the iPhone is a bit superior from other Instagrams I have seen from friends. Overall I think it was a fun experiment. Photos got published on the Record’s site but as I mention in my last blog I was feeling lots of pain in my foot and found it difficult to move around too much.

Adding Instagrams to the assignment ended up being a little overwhelming because of my foot but I think the experiment was fun. From the photos above those are photos I normally would not take during a game but with Instagrams settings they come out having an interesting look and feel. Even though Instagrams was a different pace and did take some time from capturing action I was still able to get some decent shots from the game.

Naturally I start off by taking photos of the warmups but because the foot drama was happening it took me too long to get ready to take a few from the warm-ups but was quick enough to get a couple during the singing of the national anthem.

This next image actually I enjoyed. I always enjoy coaches getting pissed off…im just waiting for one to finally completely go off the handle (I don’t wish it but it would make for good photos).
