Well, it’s high school football season again and a couple of months ago, The Recorder sports staff asked me to come up with a cover concept for this years issue. I had several ideas, and two weeks ago went out and shot some of them with the Amsterdam team. Had to wait an hour for the kids to move over from practice for their shoot, but I think it was worth it. The trick is using several off-camera flash units. I wish I could have gotten the guys to look a bit meaner, but this is the best they could give me.
We printed the 24 page insert today, the cover of which is at the top of this post and below is the original photo and two other concepts.
