I'm a firm believer that access leads to unique photographs. Without it, you're seeing the same thing as everyone else.
One of the best things about shooting at FedEx Field is the ability to roam the hallways and tunnels. Most other stadiums are strict when it comes to areas that fans cannot see.
So after a packed sideline Monday Night Football game between the Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles I broke away from the pack. I respectfully put my back on the wall and waited for the Redskins to walk to the locker room after losing in a tight contest.
Quarterback Robert Griffin III was the last one of the field - walking alone. While his body language doesn't necessarily scream dejection, his blank stare and emptiness after a loss can be felt.
I'm glad I was able to get this quiet moment that fans don't usually see - that helped tell the story for the team.
