Rammed Over

"Strong safety Phillip Thomas #41 of the Washington Redskins is stiff armed by wide receiver Stedman Bailey #12 of the St. Louis Rams in the third quarter of a game at FedExField on December 7, 2014 in Landover, Maryland."

In speaking to a handful of students recently, I made sure to tell them to never discredit the skill of being consistent.

We all want to document the biggest, flashest images that anyone has ever seen. We want to stand apart from the rest of the pack and have the most compelling pictures in our portfolio.

But the reality is that those pictures don't always present themselves. 

In planning to set yourself up for success, you need to make sure the daily images are on par each and every day. By doing so, you're preparing to be ready and focused for those incredible moments.

I'll be the first to say it's not always easy being consistent. Every day is challenging in its own right - whether directly related to the assignment or not. Yet remembering to focus on the fundamentals and be ready for anything can only be positive.

While this image certainly isn't anything ground breaking, it was solid for the day and told the story of the day.
