I had mentioned earlier that the youth sports especially when starting out in their sports foray they are in a learning mode and they have to think things out. Action can be slow most of the time with a lot of standing around waiting for the coach to tell them what to do. As they grow up the plays become more habit and the kids get much bigger. They run faster, hit harder and run plays that can be followed. The game is much faster. If you cut your teeth on little league and expand over time you get a lot of the basics down just like the kids. If you pick up a camera and show up at the college level for your first try humble may come to mind. Those 10,000 clicks you shot before will make it much easier not having to think about the camera and can follow the game. The ability of the athletes have a direct bearing on the quality of photo. A great athlete will provide ample opportunity to capture great images. I could pick the player of the game by the pictures I get. Being on the team doesn't mean a player will play or if they are in the game you will get a shot. I have struggled to get a photo of each of the seniors on the team to do posters. Sometimes they don't ever get in the game.
