I have decided that I am going to start a state-wide petition to encourage the powers in charge of high school football to start their games earlier. Here's where I got the idea:

Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of covering the Calhoun High School vs. Victoria East High School football game in Port Lavaca. The game was on a Saturday so it started at 6 p.m. instead of the traditional 7:30 p.m. (this was also before daylight savings time began, or ended, or however you phrase it.) And let me tell you... it was glorious. A very important part of photography is the photo part, meaning light. And having beautiful light to photograph football in was fantastic.

Here are two of my favorite images from the game that just wouldn't have been made without such nice light.



I just want to summarize: games start earlier, the light is nicer, photographers are happy, you, the fans and players, have better photos to look at, everyone wins. So lets start this petition. Who's with me?

Also, these images are both from the online gallery, which you can view here
