I was called out to this assignment for a new magazine to feature Huffman Hargrave's football coach, Mike McEachern. While I've been doing sports photos for another company for nearly nine years, this was a little different.
Being late in the afternoon in December, the sun was getting low and making for a lot of contrast. Since we needed to work quick before it got too dark, I pulled out two of my strobes to help fill the shadows under their eyebrows. We did about a dozen takes in less than fifteen minutes and came up with this image.
If you coach or know a few coaches, here's a link to their website: http://www.fnfmagazine.com/coach/
