Photo of the day: In the band

With perfect evening light casting soft illumination on the front row of the high school band, I stood at the ready with my camera, looking for good candid photographs. At one point, the light turned just perfect for capturing the reflected football field in the glasses of one of the flautists. I knew the moment would last only moments, so I fired off a series of quick shots. This one is my favorite, capturing both the personality of the subject and the energy of the band around her. The narrow depth of field isolates her face in spite of everything else in the frame that might distract in both the foreground and background.
