So it shows that there is a beauty to an athlete's feelings and emotions during a sport. So much time and effort can go into a sport, and when an athlete loses an important match or event, the look on a face can be heart breaking. There is an image in the book, where there is a female diver sitting on the tiles before her event. It was the qualifier to reach the U.S. team, and she is silhouetted into tiles. Iooss, was on an angle from above. It seems as though there is a large window behind her. She is sitting, with her legs slighty bent, and her head resting on her knees. You can tell that she is nervous and that she is thinking very strongly about what she needs to do. So much emotion is shown in the image, and it is definitely something to look up to.
This image isn't staged, and it isn't in the action of the game. Something I'm looking to also do. He is obviously doing a pre-game/post-game interview, and once again, a lot can be told by the expression on his face. How are they going to play today, or what the team may have done wrong in the game for example. The lighting is beautiful. Iooss is in a locker room, but it looks like it could be a studio shot. It seems as though Iooss used the light from the camera crew from the interview. There also looks to be a vignette, making the image work because it focuses in on the subject very well.
