Russ...another strong set here. Light isn't as good as it may look. I think I hear the possibilities of the 1DX on the horizon here...
When you mention the challenge to keep it fresh....I thought about it for a while and although I never shot NBA....I'm assuming you don't have the mobility where you could move around and shoot from various angles so I can see what you are saying here and how that could be a challenge. From last season's posts....I think you managed that quite well and looks like you are picking up where you left off....Show more →
Hey Frank, thanks for your feedback! Regarding your conclusion about the light: Argh!......Monday.
With a year under my belt in this arena and with the media and security folks, I think I will have the option to move around a bit. Even so, it seems that the possibilities are limited, and always I must keep in mind that I'm there for a purpose that has very little to do with maximizing creativity. A remote camera is another option, but for some reason I'm very hesitant to go there given the practical challenges associated with retrieving the cards and the extra work I would create for myself.
I agree with you about 5A, which is why I posted that shot initially. As for 3, although I went back and forth quite a bit, I never noticed that "extra set of feet." Right there to see, but it's funny how something like that can be missed. Thanks for a good call.
#8, yeah, headed for me. There were a few of those in this game, probably because I was right under the basket! In one instance, after a fairly blatant foul on a drive to the basket, both the shooter and the defender were headed toward me (which might have looked worse through the lens than it actually was). I did my best to make myself as small as possible and as each of them went by either side of me, I tipped over backwards in my L-shaped seat and spent a few seconds as a turtle on his back, trying without success to get myself back to a sitting position. Not my brightest moment but even I had to laugh.
Why I keep shooting the dancers, I don't know. It's surprisingly difficult to get a worthwhile shot without moving from my spot, and with so much else going on, I'm not inclined to move. Glad you liked it.
Thanks again for your comments, Frank. Have a good one!
