I rarely post here but had and interesting experience this morning. My son's school had a soccer match yesterday at midday... 39 C, blazing sun. No shade and too hot for this old guy! Nothing formal just 4-6 Standard playing 7-9 Standard... a bit of a size difference .

A couple of the players spent the night at my house and this morning they and my son, stood behind me and 'directed' PP of some jpegs. They are all taking Photoshop at school but I was using CNX2.

These are exactly what they asked for

When I shoot for Clubs/teams I have a feel for what they want and do a combo of how I like them and what they like. Since I do not make money and shoot a lot of kids it was interesting . I shot NEF also so will probably re-visit most and I have many more to PP.

Lots of nits to pick and obviously not great sports shots but I wonder if a lot of us soccer dads are to worried about what other photographers think?

cheers,
Tom
