Used the newspaper photographer’s technique to set my camera to f/8 or better (in this case, I used f/11) and held the camera over my head, aimed as best I could and pressed the shutter. Used the Tokina 11-16mm Wide Angle Zoom which created some pleasing distortions and, I hope, gives you a sense of the craziness of the event.

Scott that’s very effective!
I got a few that came out good. I like how the arms seem to come out of nowhere.
Distortion is really minimal considering. I love the tokina lenses.
It’s more pronounced in the top edges. I am thinking I might try to crop this some to see if it improves the photo.
Yeah, I liked the cropped version better so I changed the photo. 🙂
Very nice photo journalistic shot Scott, the technique worked great here !!
Thanks, Bernie. I felt like a real photog doing it. 🙂
This is a very good photo, Scott. The story is interesting, (I love the players expression) and the lines great.
Very effective shot. Excellent.
Scott, You couldn’t have done better even if you had a viewfinder.
This is such a good image – gripping
As a PSU alum, this photo brings back great memories. I spent many seasons working the concession stands as a member of the Cycling Team. Great shot!
Then you’ll appreciate that I had some ice cream at the Creamery after the game. Yum!
LOVE the perspective on this!
