Close Call

Michael Tansey of Peabody nearly gets kick in the head by Pasulayman Sowe of Lynn Classical as he attempts to head the ball during their game at Manning Field in Lynn.

Soccer is a great sport to photograph. There is always action on the field and the game has a good pace. Staying focused and understanding the game being photographed is a key element in capturing peak action.
