Way back in the early 60s, I served as student aide/instructor daily in the photo lab to earn free tuition at the U of Penn’s Annenberg Grad School of Communications. Ever since, I’ve been obsessed with shooting interesting action moments that happen spontaneously. Never posed, and subjects unaware of my camera.
For non-foto freaks, I must explain that this scene is not an impending disaster. It happened across the street at least 25 feet from me. The two would-be athletes were actually several safe lateral yards apart, and my telephoto lens truncated the distance to produce the impression of imminent collision. Try the creative trick next time you’re out with camera or smartphone click.
