In coming to grips with the end of my soccer-playing days, I’ve been looking forward to applying, and improving on, what I’ve learned about sports photography to the sport that had been my passion for nearly half a century. I was hoping that the spring 2018 season would provide that opportunity, but I wasn’t sure whether the local Annandale High School teams would be interested in me providing the same type of photos that I’ve been contributing to the AHS lacrosse, field hockey, volleyball, and basketball teams.
So, I asked one of the girls varsity players who had been following my sports photography Instagram feed. It seemed like there might be interest, so I decided to come out and shoot one of their early season games.

I have more editing to do.
1. AdobeRGB Color Space
After working through what I had discovered while editing and posting photos from the 2018 Atlantic Sectionals Wheelchair Rugby Tournament regarding Color Space, the Annandale High School Girls Varsity Soccer match on April 3, 2018 provided my first opportunity to try shooting photos with my Nikon D850 set to store the images using the AdobeRGB color space, instead of the default sRGB color space.
