Struggle for the Ball  
     

Struggle for the Ball

I take a huge number of soccer photos, but of course share the only ones I like best or think have a good teaching point.
 
Here I have captured the entire primary subject in action (hair flying) and moving into the frame (slightly). The ball is there. A pair of white-shirt defenders, at different distances, frame the primary subject and her teammate in the background. There is enough of the frame filled with players to knock down the obnoxious white building roof background. And the white actually adds contrast to the primary subject's shirt.
 
When you need to reach out into the big field action with a full frame camera body, the EF 500 L II and EF 600 L II lenses are the best choice.
