why the world looks better in black & white. part 103

part of a project on sports, fitness, and health, in Japan. my kids are signed up to a soccer club that contributes to the J-league apprentice pool. sometimes I’ll shoot pictures at one of their matches. doing it the old-fashioned way, manual focus. like so many sports grounds, you have to put up with horrible backgrounds so, by reducing the colour impact, the photo is easier on the eye. and yes, they do play on gravel. these kids are hard! plus, it throws up a lot of dust which looks fantastic when backlit.

Gear: Nikon D300 body
Nikon 400mm F3.5 Lens
Monopod

Manual exposure 1/1600th at F3.5, 100asa
