Not too much to say about photos of the last home basketball game.
I mean, how profound could I really get.
I mean, I guess I could talk about the luck I had catching flashes. But there's nothing really excessively deep about that...
Just really really lucky.
I used the ceiling-mounted strobes for the girl's game...
...but the regular mounted flash for the men's.
But its kinda fun to get creative when the flashy basketball shots and demon red-eyes get a little old.
Trying to tell the story of a basketball game... less basketball... more atmosphere...
Oh, and did I mention this was the first major shoot where I was able to use the newest addition to the family: the venerable AF Nikkor 17-55/2.8. It is a beast.
It was great to get up and close with the crowd.
It was a rowdy crowd.
A photogenic crowd.
And it was fun to have such a range. I didn't change a lens the entire night. And for a little side-job I had to shoot our radio announcers.
I'm kinda sad to see basketball end for the season. I may be shooting the Gulf South Conference finals on Saturday if our guys win tomorrow night. We'll see...
But that remains to be seen.
Care to stay tuned?
