Magic Hour > soccer

Girls’ soccer has begun at DHS. After shooting the boys in the fall, I’m more comfortable shooting the girls but there’s a new distraction with this season: magic hour. Thanks to DST and the position of the field, the girls play right as the sun is setting. The sky lights up to the perfect, golden hue and sets right behind them as they play, making it difficult for me to focus on my action shots because all I can think about is how pretty it is. I know, I need to find a way to incorporate both into my shots.

See? Magic hour! I promise there's a soccer player in this shot.

The Wildcats never stopped fighting during this game. They lost 0-6 but it wasn't for lack of heart.

It never ceases to amaze me how brutal and physical soccer can be yet they never stop moving!

Be honest, wouldn't you get distracted if the setting for the soccer game you were shooting looked like this?
