For the second posting in The Creator’s Corner, below is a photograph taken of the event I selected to document. Something to bear in mind for this photo is that along with completing this assignment, I was also working my part-time job with the Denver Broncos, so I thought I would take advantage of my position in the stadium (WAY up in the fifth level) to get a shot that I would normally be unable to acquire.
I arrived to Sports Authority Field at Mile High around 3:30 p.m. for work. This photo was taken roughly around 10 p.m. after the conclusion of the game, and after a majority of fans in my section had left their seats. This photo was then posted today, Friday September 9th, around 1:20 p.m. and the delay was caused by my phone dying on the Light Rail ride back to Union Station, and because of the extreme amount of exhaustion that I had after working such a busy game with very excited fans.
Below is the photo taken, with a complete caption:
The quiet yet joyous calm after a storm of emotion. This photo is taken after the thrilling conclusion of the Denver Broncos defeating the Carolina Panthers 21-20 in Denver, Colorado. This nationally televised game opened up NFL Kickoff weekend, and also officially started the 2016 NFL season. Over 76,000 fans attended this game, where big plays, controversial actions, and roaring fans made this match-up live up to the hype that had been building up for months.
