Week 44, Day 309, March 2, 2010, Foul Shot

My son's basketball team has has one more game for the Sectional Title.  They have played very well this year.  Last night was the semifinal which they won.

It was great being able to talk with one of the local photographers from the newspaper.  We compared camera settings, and tend to use similar settings. (Maybe I'm on the right track after all. :-)).

I like this photo, because I feel like I'm part of the game and very close to the action.  I like the blurred crowd in the background, and the variety of colors.

Saturday Night I'll be able to take photos at the Broome County Arena.  It should be very exciting.

Lessons Learned:
  • The Servo focus works a lot better than the AI Focus for sports photography.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/320 sec, Aperture f/2.8, ISO 3200, Focal Length 200 mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, handheld.

I think this is my favorite of your basketball pictures.

This is a great capture! The shooter in focus, foreground blurred, and the wonderful colorful bokeh of the background spectators. Looks like something from Sports Illustrated! Nicely done!
