This image is obviously on a bus, and there is a lot to tell about the image. It looks like it is very quiet, and that the players are trying to get in the zone by listening to their favorite music. This is something similar to what i am looking for. Except, I'll use my flash in a different way instead of direct. Maybe by bouncing it off the ceiling, or window/wall.
I've also thought of getting into locker rooms or sides of a field where players get ready. To capture game plans, ideas, thoughts, and concentration. I am really looking forward to this and I hope it gives me some experience being around real athletes. So I am ready when I graduate.
