Penalty Shootout

By JamesFarley    
Lucky enough through my work to have the use of Anfield once a year to put on a charity football event, and naturally being a Liverpool fan, I offer up my services each and every year!

I'm like a kiddy in a sweet shop spending time within the stadium with pretty much unrestricted access to all areas!

Main focus of day though is to photograph the various matches we have on, and to try and raise as much money as possible from it for the Marina Dalglish Appeal.

Two suggestions, for the next time you are there lucky man.

1) You should take a photo after the player has kicked, the ball is in the air and the goalkeeper jumps to grab it.
2) Ask to be given a camera that has the "toy lens" effect in its settings, not sure of a tilt and shift would be as accessible or available, lol Smile

Thanks for the comments, as it happens, I've got a series of images for this particular penalty, set camera to continuous high and let rip, just deciding on best way to merge them into one!
