Europa Cup Football

11 04 2010

Covered another night of European Football at Anfield on Thursday 8.4.12. Arrived at the ground early to avoid the traffic. Reserved a place pitch side assuming Liverpool would attack the Anfield Road end first.

I was under instructions to transmit some photos at half time so I had my laptop and mobile broadband ready.I did some pre match shots of the crowd, celebrity guests and the players during the warm up.
My plan was to shoot the first half and transmit during half time.I had charged my 2 year old MacBook Pro earlier and was surprised to see it only had a small amount of power left in the battery.To compound the problem I couldn’t get a signal on the mobile broadband.I had a reasonable shot of Lucas scoring a first half goal and no way to send it through to the agency.No choice but to shoot the second half and transmit everything after the match in the photographers room using the available wi-fi. This resulted in a late finish and I left the ground some one and a half hours after the match finished.

Further photos from the game can be viewed and purchased at    http://www.photoshelter.com/c/imagelibrary/gallery/Liverpool-v-Benfica-Europa-Cup-8-4-10/G0000hpoxiS1NFBw/
