Basketball season has come to an end. All of the teams we cover have been eliminated from the playoffs. It was a long season. I must have shot 30 games this year. Out of those 30 games only a couple of them were not lit. My light kit (blogged about here) worked great for most assignments. Every year my timing gets better and I enjoy the challenge of lighting different gyms more and more. I have selected a few of my favorite pictures from this season. You can see a few more over at my sportsshooter.com member page here. Thanks for looking.
Note to self: Try to come up with a better way to shoot swimming this year. I am tired of making this photo. I am gonna try my best to not run a photo that looks like this again in 2009.
Football Play offs are upon us. I couldn’t be happier. (Well, I guess I could because I could really use my 300mm lens that was run over on the sidelines last week.)
With only 2 teams left in our coverage area still in the running, my schedule is settling down and I can actually shoot the entire game without having to run off to shoot 2 (or more) games in one night. Speaking of night, so far all the play off games have been during the day. This is great: low ISOs, high shutter speeds and full buffers. It makes finding the right game defining moment a lot easier when I can choose from a sequence of images instead of choosing what is in focus.
