2020 (and in to 2021): Photography During a Pandemic...Continued

Under normal circumstances, photographing from the stands
 for swimming is less than ideal, however, I was able to turn 
that disadvantage into an advantage by using the lane marker 
flags that were now visible in my images to frame swimmers.

The winter and spring sports seasons brought much of the same challenges as the fall season did.  While there were a few exceptions, there was still a lot of photography from the stands, or from outside the courts, or playing fields, flexibility required, and mask wearing was still a must.  So, while not a whole lot changed one sport stuck out.

2020 certainly has been an interesting year.  

As a sports photographer, 2020, and the Covid-19 pandemic, has provided unique challenges, but also unique opportunities.  As the year nears it's end, I'd like to take a minute to reflect on some of the experiences, challenges, and unique learning opportunities that 2020 provided for me.
