Rival friends

Rivals in football - Friends for life

Life-long friends and now football rivals will go head-to-head Friday night in local high school football. Dorian Wells (West Covina's South Hills High School), left in photo, and Bryce Mahmud-McBride (Hacienda Heights' Los Altos High School) played for Bishop Amat High School in La Puente (very history-filled football tradition) last year but both transfered out, reportedly, because of the coaching changes and tunnel vision the staff has in regards to being fair at playing all the kids.
Anyway, these two kids are now having very successful senior years and will battle it out, as friends, Friday night. This photo was done early in the morning, 7 am, at a neutral field in West Covina.

Tech facts: Manual setting: f 2.8 @ 1/800 sec. , ISO 400 rating. 16-35mm lens at about 20 mm (21mm actually).
Lighting = Trusty on-board strobe (flash) with kicker card, low angle to emphasize size & strength, with goal posts in background to set the scene. any questions, write me at raulroa@yahoo.com
