Having been given only two rolls of film per game put a premium on shot selection. It was a fortunate consequence of being a new guy. Shoot too fast and your standing around with a great view of the game, a couple of o.k. photos and that's about it. But pick and choose your shots, and all of the sudden, your rolls of film are filled with great captured moments in time.
Or at the very least, lots and lots of pom pom girls.
