Sports Action Images by Chas Sumser, VivaLoudoun Photographer
Ashburn, VA (Mar 31, 2016) – It’s an honor and privilege to photograph the exciting competition, intense rivalries, outstanding athletes, emerging leaders and high-quality teams that populate Loudoun County High School sports. Having taken thousands of images, it’s a challenge to select the ones that are the best of any time period. But this gallery of 35 images is one photographer’s perspective, mine. The photos are ordered by date from earliest to most recent.
I chose these images for a variety of reasons, but most often it’s the sheer emotion or else something unusual about the image itself. You’ll see that the technique isn’t always perfect, and some photos are good even when they’re slightly out of focus. High school gym and stadium lighting is always a challenge for sports photographers, and sometimes we get it just right. Sometimes not so much. I experiment with techniques in post-processing that can enhance the moment, and some are included here. Enjoy.
Thank you to the athletes, coaches, administrators and officials who make photographing Loudoun County high school sports so much fun.
See you on the sidelines.
