The Washington Redskins today were able to use their indoor practice facility for the first time as the backdrop for their annual team photo.
The entire team photo process is pretty interesting. The two-man crew from VSN Photography got in this morning around 6:45 a.m. began setting up the chairs and risers, as well as a multitude of photography equipment, such as cameras, lights and flashes.
By the way, Larry and Joel from VSN Photography are obviously pros at this. They said they travel the country around this time each year and take other NFL teams’ photos. We sure hope they have their best experience here in Washington.
Anyway, here’s some behind-the-scenes footage of the team as they set up for their 2012 team photo:

Because, you know, there’s not enough else going on, the 2010 team picture was taken this morning. I’ll have plenty more later today about the ongoing (but hopefully resolved!) Donovan McNabb benching saga, but let’s start the posting day with something a little lighter: some snaps from the team photo shoot.
(Click pictures to enlarge.)
A few things worth noting:
First, the gold pants are being immortalized. I suppose this makes them The Official Pants of the 2010 Redskins, in case they weren’t already.
Second, notice Clinton Portis‘ cap in the bottom left of the picture above. Sadly, he was forced to remove it for the actual photo.
Third, this event provided a chance to see a lot of practice squad guys and a couple of preseason stars in the gold pants, which was kind of neat. For example, here’s your first look at RB James Davis in a Redskins gameday uniform.
Or Malcolm Kelly in the gold pants:
Ditto for preseason standout Terrence Austin:
Also, it was just a gorgeous (if brisk) morning, so burgundy and gold and green grass and blue sky just looked terrific.
And then there was this sequence of photos I took with my phone, which really captures the tension between McNabb and Rex Grossman.
