I seem to be able to capture great action shots with annoying light poles, or better yet I swear those trash cans follow me from soccer field to soccer field and then jump into the frame at the last second. I have made a note of this while going over lots of my shots. My plan is to walk around the field and look throw the viewfinder before the action starts and try to find positions that don't have distractions in the back ground or bright lights, etc. will it work..we shall see!
