My Second Time Shooting Lacrosse: Harvard vs. Yale

You may have read my post last week, here, about my first time shooting (and watching) lacrosse.

A few days after the game, I was contacted by Harvard University to see if I’d like to cover their men’s lacrosse team play against Yale in the semifinal of The Ivy League Tournament at Harvard Stadium, setting me up to shoot my second lacrosse game.

Though I could be completely wrong, to my untrained eye the college game seems more fast paced and gritty, rather than the slower, tactic filled game of Major League Lacrosse.

This was also my first time shooting a night game at Harvard Stadium, which is a fantastic venue to shoot at. The light was great, and it offers amazing accessibility.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the game:
