Green Bay, Wisconsin Sports Photographer • Packers Defeat The Panthers In A Snow Globe Game

As I loaded up my camera gear to shoot Sunday’s Green Bay Packers vs the Carolina Panther NFL football game at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin yesterday, I took a look at the hourly weather forecast. I chose not to bring my rain and snow covers since the chance of precipitation was 0% until midnight when it went up to a whopping 5%.  Let’s just say the forecast was a tad off. Midway through the first half of the game, a light snow started to fall.  I’ve shot a few photo friendly snow globe games at Lambeau Field and this one would rank right up against those.  

Shooting in falling snow has its challenges, especially with telephoto lenses.  It makes it difficult for the camera and lens to find focus on your subject when there is a mess of snow between you and your subject. Another issue when shooting cold weather football games is that heat waves interfere with the sharpness of your images.  The heat waves come from the heaters in the bench areas and can push out on to the playing field.  I don’t shoot much from the bench area during cold weather games because of this and try to shoot as much as I can from the end zone.  Despite the challenges that shooting in snow and cold create, I do like the look of the photos and I’d much rather shoot in snow than in rain.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the game.  

Thanks for looking!
