    It's that time again. Oklahoma High School Football week 0 is this weekend. Some teams scrimmage this week and a few have games that count. Last Friday, I went to the first week of scrimmages.

    Scrimmages are hard to get clean backgrounds with all the extra people on the field, but here are a few that were okay.

    1) From over halfway across the field and cropped but I got a clean background.

    2) One of my favorites, even with all the coaches in the background.

    3) From the endzone looking up the sideline. This one almost looks like it was a normal game.

    4) Again, from the endzone shooting back up the sideline as he tries to turn the corner.

    @Dean_Gretsch - funny you mention MWC because I was going to go to their scrimmage but I was a day late. It was on Thursday night instead of Friday. Thank you.

    Thank you John. Yes it is getting that time, and I STILL don't have that 300mm f/2.8, lol.

    Sweet, that is the ONLY way to go. lol. I just got my pass from the OSSAA and I will pick up my sideline pass for the local team on Monday. I need to send the email to the college that I shoot on occasions.

    I'm doing girls volley ball too. Can't wait to shoot that. The local high school has been using my images in their paper and newsletter (without my permission) but I don't care, glad they thought enough of some of them to use. It did get me the sideline pass for football. I may also get to do a story on a local museum that the news paper is interested in. Just gotta do it, have @Gary A. edit it and see what happens. I did interview all the important people which took a few hours.
