Take one for the team

"Quarterback Rex Grossman #8 of the Washington Redskins rolls onto his back after taking a hit against the Minnesota Vikings in the first quarter at FedEx Field on December 24, 2011 in Landover, Maryland. The Minnesota Vikings won, 33-26."

I was going through my final images of the year and thought I'd make one last post before the new year.

Despite early start times, NFL games in the winter tend to have some great light that only lasts for about a quarter or two.

For this game, my teammate photographer for the day wanted to shoot from above the first two quarters. I had no problem with that, so I decided to work the back-lit side and avoid the other ugly background side of the field.

Working the light of these type of games is a gamble. You can try and be safe or take risks and expose for highlights. While this isn't really either of the aforementioned, it was sort of a little magical moment that ended up telling the story of the game in the end.

Thanks for reading this year. Hope you're looking forward to 2012 as much as I am.

Happy New Year!
