Monday Close Up: Shooting for sanctioning

"A Timpanogos club lacrosse player wait to enter a drill at Timpanogos High School, Tuesday, March 23, 2010. Each afternoon, players strap on pads, lace lacrosse sticks and slap on helmets as they gear up for another successful season of the fastest growing sport in the United States."

We have a small staff here at Provo Daily Herald. We run a tight ship.

It's even tighter and more hectic with no photo intern. We are currently in the transition period between the old intern and the new intern, so we're are super busy.

With that, I had about half, if that, of the time to do my Monday Close Up. So I was urged to maybe pick something I knew a little about and that would be easy to shoot.

I thought that would be a good idea so that I wouldn't rush through a story I'd really like to spend time doing.

So I decided to focus on lacrosse. This sport is something that I grew up playing and that is huge back east. However, out here in Utah it's still a small time sport and growing.

After finding a local high school club team I went to town.

Despite not having that much time to work on it, I thought it turned out well and hopefully informed people of Utah County about the sport.

We need to start the Daily Herald photographers association. All the cool people either work there or are alumni.
