Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles

In a surprise today, I got to shoot the first preseason football game of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2012. It was also Andy Reid’s first game at the helm since his son’s recent death. I was assigned to cover the longtime Eagles coach and shoot sports features, while the extremely talented Jose Moreno shot most of the action. At one point, while I covered the game itself, I took some time to experiment. The results are included here. (Note: different people have different opinions as to the photojournalistic legitimacy of these sorts of experiment shots. I’m not taking a side. I just like how they look.)

Andy Reid reacts as the crowd shouts support after a moment of silence for his son.

Still on their feet from the moment of silence, fans flank Reid at the start of the national anthem.

Reaching for gloves.

They really wanted those gloves.
