07 JULY 09
It was another day of British soccer camp, but I didn't want to take another soccer picture. Luckily, the field the girls were using is the same one the high school football teams use for practice. While there were no football players on the field, there were tackling dummies.
They were kind of far away, right in front of the fence on the opposite side of the field. I almost passed them up, but the color pattern on this end caught my eye: blue, red, blue. The next dummy on the right was also blue, so it was cropped out.
I also wanted to give the photo a little bit tougher feel, hence the use of the Fresco filter in Photoshop. Makes the photo a little grittier, don't you think?
Post-processing: noise reduction, sharpening, curves adjustment, saturation boost, Photoshop Fresco filter, border addition.
