Behind the Lens: A Look Back at the Top Photos from the 2022 Season – No. 3

Counting down the best photos from the Chiefs’ archives in 2022

A photograph can be powerful. It possesses the ability to capture the raw emotion of a singular moment and preserve an otherwise fleeting snippet of time, telling a story in the process.

In the days leading up to training camp, we're taking a look back at 10 of the best photos from the 2022-23 season along with commentary from Chiefs' Director of Photography Steve Sanders. Unlike in previous years, this isn't a countdown of Sanders' top images, but rather the story of the Chiefs' championship season told through some of his favorite photos.

Here's a look at what we've covered so far: No. 10 | No. 9 | No. 8 | No. 7 | No. 6 | No. 5 | No. 4

We'll continue with No. 3:

Steve Sanders' Thoughts:

Q: What was going on in this moment?

Sanders: "This photo was taken by Evan Sanders, my son. He's a photographer and a social media content creator. His job post-game was to get the feeling of the celebration, and I don't know if he could have taken a photo that captured the celebration better than this one," Sanders said. "There were hundreds of thousands of pieces of confetti in the air, and Skyy was running around with the flag. I just really think that this tells the entire story. We won the game, the red and gold confetti is in the air and the emotions are just incredible."

Q: Can you speak to the difficulty of maintaining focus on the subject amidst a confetti storm like this?

Sanders: "Shooting in something like this – or when it's snowing, which would give you the same effect – is really hard. You have to fight through the confetti and really lock in on that player's jersey," Sanders said. "Sometimes, their face can be hard to see, but if you can lock in on their jersey and really make sure that it's sharp, that will help you with the focus. I also recommend giving yourself a wider aperture so that you have some room for error."
