Our picture of the week was taken by the Outlook’s assistant sports editor Kyle Brown. This portrait does a great job showing what the women’s soccer Community Day was all about.

The exposure of the photo is a good example of why overcast days are great for portraits, no flash was needed to fill in shadow areas and a pleasing lighting pattern of natural light falls on the faces. Kyle captured this photo with an aperture of f/4.0 to give the background a nice softness and adding some separation between subjects and environment. The ISO was set at 250 with a shutter speed of 1/800″ to stop all action and produce the nice crisp moment in time that we see.

Composition of the photo is balanced by the portrait of the girls on the right and the team members signing autographs back to the left. The arms of Megan Soncrant wrap around Sara as she grasps her signed team photo, leading the eye to the main subject first. The draped cloth in the background frames the players very nicely and creates a strong triangular element to capture viewers attention.
