FIRST TWO POINTS OF THE GAME circa 1988
First goal of the game.
Radford University versus NC State.
I have never considered myself to be a sports photographer, but I did capture a few decent images during my term at RU.
This was a big game and highly touted. Little RU taking on one of the top teams in the country. I won't say who won, but RU made the first score of the game and the crowd went wild. I had my camera set up on a tripod overlooking the arena and although I certainly did not expect what happened next, my finger pressed the shutter release real quick. I dislike motor drives, but I did make several rapid exposures and this is the one I liked best. Normally it is the first exposure that nails the image you anticipate. You will see more of this on my blog.
This was the decisive moment and I was ready.
