AI is undoubtedly getting better and better. But sometimes, even though it’s artificial intelligence, it just acts plain dumb. This is what happened at a recent soccer game in Scotland. Inverness Caledonian Thistle F.C. equipped its stadium with a ball-tracking AI-powered camera to stream the games. However, instead of tracking the ball, the camera would often switch its focus to a referee’s bald head.
Actress and singer Hilary Duff recently called out on a photographer who was taking photos at her kid’s soccer game. She saw him standing on the touchline and approached him, filming the encounter with her phone. The two had a brief discussion, which Duff posted to her Instagram, publicly calling him out for being “a creep.”
Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins had his first victory NFL victory this Sunday. However, he missed the final play of the game because he was busy taking selfies with fans in the stands.
A yesterday’s college football game between the Georgia Bulldogs and Auburn Tigers proved dangerous for a photographer on the sideline. Following a short pass, a Georgia player slammed into her and immediately knocked her unconscious.
Incidents happen in sport and sometimes, sports photographers get accidentally involved in them as well. But apparently, some sports players will rage out on photographers even though they did nothing wrong. Football player Mario Balotelli recently got angry over a referee’s decision. So, he took his anger out on a nearby tripod, smashing a photographer’s camera.
Incidents happen in sports, both small and big ones. As photographers, we may sometimes get involved in them as well. This is what happened to photographer Shelley Lipton at a recent NFL game. Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson smashed into her at full speed, and a video of him helping her out and hugging her after the incident quickly went viral.
During an Alabama-Arkansas game this Saturday, ESPN removed some camera operators from their positions in Razorback Stadium because of a bad weather. As a result, only wide-angle view was broadcasted, which made the players look like ants. And expectedly, the Internet had no mercy when it comes to cheeky tweets.
Sometimes, photography is powerful enough to change your life. This is what happened to both photojournalist Ted Jackson and a homeless man he photographed in 1990. This photo created a strong bond between the photographer and his subject – who turned out to be a former football quarterback, Jackie Wallace.
Ted Jackson tells his story about the image and the man in the photo, whose life has been anything but kind to him. It’s a story about friendship and devotion, about life’s unpredictable paths and it’s bright and dark moments. It’s a wonderful story, but very sad at the same time.
Last night, the College Football Playoff National Championship was played between Alabama and Georgia. After the game-winning touchdown, both the crowd and the players were ecstatic. In the overall madness, one photographer also got a little carried away… and he got knocked down by an ecstatic football player
