Week 10, Day 67, July 6, 2009 "Pass Over the Top"

My interest in photography began with taking photos of my children while they played sports. As the kids matured, and I purchased better equipment my photos improved. I still like taking photos of sports, but it is much different than nature and people photography.

My son is in a summer league, and this photo was taken during tonight's game. This isn't my son, but a great teenager anyway. It's tough to get the camera to focus well, and get a clear shot. This one seems to have come out quite well. (It's really hard to get the photos clear inside a gym.)

Lessons Learned:
  • Although interesting, I'm not finding sports photography as interesting as I once did.
  • The officials always seem to be in the way for the great shots. :-)
Photo details: Exposure time 1/320 sec, Aperture f/3.5, ISO 100, Focal Length 85 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 240mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, hand held.

This guy can jump. He's not very tall, but makes up for it with his jumping abilities and his timing. Many times he'll get the rebound when he's up against somebody much taller than he his.
