Gameday in Athens, GA

Whooeee!!! So, I got a gig as a fan photographer at Sanford Stadium. Nothing too glamorous as I discovered last night at the Georgia game vs South Carolina. However, by the time the game was over, I found that I had become less inhibited which was presumably aided by my discovery of the fact that several of the fans were inebriated. πŸ˜€ Anyway, this job was what I needed to come out of my shell because I was required to ask total strangers if I could take photographs of them! I managed to get just barely above the bare minimum, but I hope that my pictures turned out great and that my next home game will be even more fruitful! It was quite a workout for me because first of all, walked to Sanford Stadium and pretty much walked up and down stairs the entire time I was at the stadium. And I lost my voice! I feel great today though. It was for a good cause because the Georgia Bulldawgs won and I screamed my tired lungs out! πŸ˜›

At least, I know what to do and what NOT to do this time around. For instance, I was a little shy to begin with so I was hesitant when the stadium wasn’t too crowded. That was a mistake I won’t be repeating because it becomes even harder once the stadium fills up with people! To make matters trickier for me, I was assigned to a section that had fans of the opposing team. lol. Talk about feeling like I was in the lion’s den or in enemy territory. Thankfully, I batted my baby brown eyes and sweetly asked for permission which, for the most part, was granted. πŸ™‚ Here are some videos I shot using my Nokia E71x phone about my experience! Cheers!
