This week's i heart faces contest is for Crazy, Silly, Funny Faces. As a sports photographer, I strive to capture not only the action but also the emotions... and with the emotions come the crazy, silly, funny faces! Take for example, the photograph I chose for this entry; Eli is a player on my oldest son's soccer team and I was able to capture this image at one of the Tournaments they participated in last Spring.
It is also very interesting to me to see players' associated reactions when they are concentrating on what they do. My youngest son, Anthony, will often stick his tongue out and to the left side of his mouth when playing soccer or basketball. Another player on Nicholas' team plays soccer with his tongue inside his cheek, and another one always has a very serious/ painful expression on his face, etc...
When watching the game, you don't see these little things. But when it is captured in one or many photographs, you definitely start to notice it!
