I have been inspired by these photos to do a study on candid portrait photography .

I like how the eyes have framed between the mask of the ball players. Each giving a differant expression, and light.

I burned the surround of the face to draw the eye to the players eyes.

These particular close ups I like because of the "bird cage" attached to the helmet.

The bird cage is kind of like a natural frame for the eyes, and the brim of the helmet is a natural cutter.

Candids of kids can be a great way to produce a story.

The close up shot makes for a more intimate way of showing the emotion that is on a players face.

Strictly sticking to the guidelines.

Candids of players at the youth level can result in cuteness.

Even here sticking to the guidelines is desirable.
