Following the Movement of the Ball

When I photograph sports I am often very close to the activities and the players. Among the advantages of such close proximity, I am able to watch the focus of the individuals during play.

For instance, while most in the audience usually view the backs of players’ heads at any given moment, I am able to follow the eyes of everyone on the playing field or the court. As can be seen in the accompanying photo, all those pictured are intensely tracking the movement of the ball, and their concentration is rarely broken before the whistle blows to halt action.
