Week 32, Day 229, December 8, 2009, Two Points


It was a late night last night, so I didn't have a chance to go through the photos to pick the one that I liked the best.  So, here is yesterday's photo.

To me this photo has a sense of movement, and action.  I also like how the ball is resting on the shooters single right hand. I like the results. 

In last nights photos I spent some more time watching how the basketball players dribbled the ball.  I would then try to capture the moment when they took off, or switched directions while dribbling.  I only caught a couple of them well, but I think I'll concentrate on them in tomorrow nights game.

Lessons Learned:
  • Waiting for the proper moment to take the photo is tricky.  I tend to wait to long.  I'm learning to try and take the photo a little sooner.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/160 sec, Aperture f/2.8, ISO 1600, Focal Length 105 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 171mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, handheld.

I like this too. I like the emotions shown by the coach and players in the background, anticipating the results of the shot.

He may be a future superstar.

It is a moment such as the butterfly.
