Week 5 vs. Indianapolis Colts: Fourth Quarter

Shot by: Terrell Lloyd, Senior Manager of Photography Services

Subject: Marquise Goodwin

Location: Lucas Oil Stadium

Lloyd:"I work with five different cameras and lenses on any given gameday to capture various things in a game and get a variety of shots depending on where the team is at on the field. I also have an extender to multiply the focal length of a lens.

"So, on this play, the 49ers are down the field around their own 40-yard line, and I'm sitting in the end zone as the play unfolds. Hoyer goes to pass, and he throws a bomb downfield to Marquise Goodwin. I pan over to catch Marquise, and I'm like 'Oh no. I'm really tight.' So, as I pan over to take the shot coming downfield, Marquise is extended parallel to this diving catch. Since the line of scrimmage was so far down field, I'm using lens for a tight shot on a catch that's now up close. There was no time to change cameras, and normally I wouldn't use that lens for a deep pass.

"He extended his body parallel between two defenders, and that's what makes it so interesting to capture that pass, at that angle, with that camera."
