The college football season is under way in Columbia, Missouri and we kicked it off by photographing the first game of SEC conference play for the Missouri Tigers and Georgia Bulldogs. The game also marked the annual Tiger Stripe game for Mizzou. Fans in alternating sections wore black and gold to create the tiger stripe.

I wanted to try something a little different to capture a new photo of the tiger stripe in the stadium. I brought out a panoramic head and monopod to create a full 360 degree image of the stands as the players were running onto the filed. After a little Photoshop work I was able to create a really cool 360 degree tiny world panorama of the field. This was the first time I have tried something like this and I thought the results were pretty good. You never quite know what you are going to get when you are stitching multiple photos together with people moving in the frame. I think I have caught the 360 bug and am trying to think of new ways to incorporate this technique into my work.

The Missouri Tigers took on the Hoosiers of Indiana in Columbia, MO and I was there to photograph all of the game action. Missouri did not look very good all afternoon. The lead went back and forth most of the afternoon. Missouri was up by three points with a few minutes to go in the game.

Indiana was able to score the go ahead touchdown with 23 seconds left in the game to win 31-27. Hopefully Missouri will be able to regroup and have a successful rest of the season.

The Missouri football team finished off a successful regular season with a win over Texas A&M, on senior night, at Memorial Stadium in Columbia, Mo. Senior night is always a special game to photograph as players finish off their college careers. This year the game was extra special, with Mizzou’s win the clinched the SEC East Division title.

Fans rushed the field to celebrate the victory with the Missouri football players. Following the senior’s last game tradition has it that they go up onto the hill in the north end zone and take a rock from the Rock M to commemorate their time at Mizzou.

The Tigers had a great year, and I am looking forward to photographing them in action again next fall.
