In photographing high school football, I really do not have the correct camera and lens to shoot into the night. High school stadiums have lights which are not bright enough for photography without a camera that can handle it. Like a Nikon D3s or D4(s).
With kick offs around 6:30pm in my area. I have the last hour before sunset to get my photos which is known as the Magic Hour. Magic or Golden hour gives nice light in the red-yellow spectrum of light as the Sun nears the horizon.

As I was not photographing for any newspaper, I was able to concentrate on getting sport portraits of some of the players. Notice the low angle of the light creating shadows and bright colors. You can tell when I was loosing the light by the increase in the ISO number.
Back in the day (many years ago) I played center and wanted to make sure I got a photo of B’ville’s starter.
There are many rumors that Nikon will be announcing a new camera this week. I might be in the market.
