The MONEY Shot + Before and After Photos with Game Details & 5x7 Money Shot Card
Introducing, "The MONEY Shot"!
This rival game shot of MSU vs. U of M (taken on 10-29-22) has been on my bucket list for quite some time. This is the 2nd night game in 114 years between these two teams.
This photo shows the three photos taken before the "Money Shot" as well as the three photos taken after. It shows how the skids from the helicopter I was in was about to ruin the shot until I corrected my camera angle.
Four hours before the game, I found out that the Coast Guard was doing the flyover, which is special because I had the opportunity to fly with the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City last week in their MH-60 Jayhawk.
You have no idea how hard this shot was to align. If you look closely at centerfield, the black shadow is the Coast Guard's MH-60 Jayhawk. I have dreamed of getting this shot, and seconds before I did, I thought I blew the opportunity. The wind shifted and pushed the helicopter so the landing skids covered up the middle of the field. At that moment, I made a quick decision to move my camera angle between the helicopter and the skids. I held the shutter down and prayed.
Seconds later, I scrolled through my camera to see what I captured and was ecstatic!!
I want to thank a good friend of mine for giving away my ticket to this huge game, which gave me the chance to scratch this off my bucket list! That's not a joke either!
