Today's Top 10 Photo Gallery is all about peak action. When I'm shooting a game, peak action images are alway on the top of my to-do list! Capturing a player in mid air with the ball on his fingertips is my goal for every play, but as you know, that can't always happen. Peak action can happen at anytime though and i have to be ready for it. What I love about shooting these images are the story that they tell. They freeze that split second moment in time and can really convey a powerfull emotion. Sometimes there will be sweat and grass flying through the air at the point of impact...I love it when that happens!
As you can see in this gallery, peak action can also be the moment right before impact. That silent moment when their quarterback knows he is about to be sacked (by Mathis) and has no escape...his only option is to stand there, brace for impact and let me capture the entire play for my highlight reel! Good times!
