I like this shot because of the intensity of the defender looking at the ball. I looked at a whole series of photos, and his eyes were always on the ball.
It was another great game, and a lot of fun to photograph. The lighting was also very good. I was able to push the shutter speed up to 250 in this gym.
- My lens has a switch on the side to help set the lens to the proper focal distance. One setting is for photos under 1.5 m, and the other setting is for photos further than 1.5m. I had the lens set for greater 1.5m, and the when the players were near me the camera would not focus correctly. I realized it during the game and switched.
