I managed to not get hit in the head during this entire shoot. That was the goal. Get it? The goal? Get it? Okay, forget I said that. Light was not what I wanted, but sometimes you have to shoot when you have to shoot. These kids are wicked good. I would have blown a knee, ruptured a disc or just collapsed if I tried to do this. It was hard enough just bending down to get the low shots.
We didn’t have soccer when I was growing up, so it sure is nice to see these kids playing this truly global game.
