On the Road to Pullman – UCLA @ WSU

I got to take my first “Road Trip” of the season for an assignment to shoot the WSU Cougars at home against the UCLA Bruins. I took off early Saturday morning for the drive across the state to Pullman. It was my first chance to shoot at Martin Stadium. The 2 PM kickoff made for some harsh shadows to adjust to. It was a cold one with the temperatures hovering right around freezing. The Bruins dominated the Cougars right from the start for a 43-7 conference win.
