LONDON - Here's the latest entry from our guest blogger, Ross Kinnaird, the Getty Images sports photographer whose last entry created a bit of a debate on the merits, or otherwise, of digitially manipulating images.
His latest snap shows Sven-Goran Eriksson briefing Wayne Rooney as he prepares to make his first appearance versus Trinidad & Tobago.
After 58 minutes of torture, Sven puts England fans at ease and prepares to unleash Rooney
Not the most difficult picture to shoot - but just the type of moment during a game that needs to be captured. Working conditions are tight - there are over 200 telephoto lenses pointing in all directions. Every photographer has their own agenda, all trying to get something different. Some are looking for stock imagery, some for the news moments in a game, (e.g. Sven and Rooney). Many of the images will be used in books and magazines for years to come, while others will be wrapped around fish and chips by the weekend!
