Washington Commanders Training Camp

Washington Commanders Training Facility
Ashburn, VA
Monday August 15, 2022

Had a great opportunity to visit the Washington Commanders training camp. It was ten year's ago when I was last there as the team moved their camp to Richmond, VA before returning to Ashburn this Summer. 

It wasn't your typical August steam bath today but we had some sprinkles, then some rain as you will see in some photos. Not a bad day to take pictures though. I brought a Nikon D500 and Nikon 70-200 mm f 2.8 lens. I also brought along a Nikon AF-S 2x Teleconverter that belonged to my Dad and used it for the first time to get up close. I probably would not have been allowed in if I brought my 120-300mm zoom lens I use for outdoor sports. With the Teleconverter I did lose some sharpness but overall I accomplished what I set out to do and it will be a nice piece of equipment to have in my bag.

I focused on the offense and roamed around the fields where spectators were allowed access, doing my best not to get in the way of others. One day it would be great to have a photo credential for an NFL game. Until that happens, this was the best way for me to see the Commanders up close.

I appreciated the opportunity to be there and hope to go out again next Summer.
