Missouri didn’t pull ahead until the fourth quarter of today’s game. It was looking pretty dreary, so during the second quarter, I tried to capitalize on that mood and kept my eyes out for the players on the bench that reflected this feeling.
The cool and warm tones of the blackish-blue uniforms and the fiery red beard drew me in. It was one of those situations where I had him in my camera’s sights and just waited for his head to turn and look wistfully at the scoreboard.
My colleague Tim Tai locked down hard on sports action, so I focused on features. When I wasn’t editing, I shot the first two quarters with a 400mm and then switched to a wide-angle lens for the final two.
In a very long and drawn out fourth, Missouri made a comeback and beat Arkansas 21-14.
