On warm fall nights, the school comes together under the lights at John Elway Stadium to watch the Highlanders defend the home field. Between hundreds of conversations in the stands, energetic cheerleaders trying to hype the crowd up, and the football team yelling plays and encouragement at teammates on the field, standing on the sidelines away from the chaos is a wonderful change from sitting in the stands.
Over the last two years I have learned to love photographing football games from on the field, as they give me the opportunity to be creative with my camera setting and focus on every play. This series of photos is from weeks one and three of the season against Oxnard High School and Palisades Charter High School, respectively.
