I like this shot from the University of Saint Francis football game against Malone University because it shows Antoin Campbell taking off down field fro a touchdown after breaking away from the Malone defense.
In the second quarter the University of Saint Francis was back lit as they ran towards goal. I had to be careful not to underexpose the shot. It was also hard to sometimes see the action, too. Bright light in your eyes will do that.
I used the spot meter mode in my camera so that the meter in my camera read the shadowed area. I could have also shot in manual exposure mode and metered from the grass.
