This past weekend’s Miami Hurricanes game was a special one. Carter Hucks had his Make-A-Wish Foundation wish come true. Carter wanted to meet his idol Duke Johnson of the Miami Hurricanes and practice with the team. For 3 days, Carter was able to practice with the team and on game day, Carter led the team out of the tunnel as well was the honorary captain. His wish came true and then some.
As for the actual game itself, it was hot day to shoot that was for sure. I can’t recall how many times I burned my hand just by holding my lens. Have to love fall in Miami right?
The action on the field was even hotter as the Hurricanes ran, literally, all over Cincinnati. It was a great game to caption some epic sports action photos.
Other than me sweating up and down the field, I was able to put myself in prime position to catch the action. I feel like I’m getting pretty good in knowing the tendencies of the Miami Hurricanes on offense. It is a bit of a struggle at times trying to figure out the opposing teams because this is my first time seeing them play.
To prepare for the other team I usually read up about the team and the players prior to me arriving to Sun Life Stadium. When I walk into the Press Box, I pick up all the packets that are available about the opposing team and I take the roster sheet so I can memorize the players and the numbers I should be keeping an eye out for.
I have also noticed a considerable uptick in photographers shooting the Miami Hurricanes football games. Real estate to shoot has been pretty tight these past couple of weeks. It’s good practice given that the major game of the year, FSU, is only a couple of weeks away.
