Shooting Locations: Behind the play to capture pass completions or a defensive interception with the receiver’s face toward you, in anticipation of a defensive sack of the quarterback, a tackle for a loss, or a blocked punt; 10-yards in front of the play to capture pulling lineman and running backs; on the Goal Line or behind the end zone to capture the scoring play.
Shutter Speed Range: 1/640 to 1/800 day or night.
Tip(s): Shoot from the home team side to avoid having to compete with the down and distance marker crew. Most teams run plays to the center and wide-side (generally to their right). Teams are required to stand between the 30-yard lines so look take up locations from the 30-yard line to the goal line.
