p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Recreational basketball at 14mm!


It's been a while since I've photographed a basketball game (about a year). This afternoon, I decided to bring my 14-24 to my nephew's recreational basketball game and ended up taking most of the images at 14mm. The close ups are at 200mm.

I realize that it is generally best to shoot sports tight and highlight the action. But, the environmental nature of the 14mm made for an interesting change of pace in my view.

2- I think my nephew may have committed a foul on this play

You seem to want to go back to the B&W film days. Last one made me laugh, as much as I wouldn't like to admit. I really like #'s 1,4,6, but they are all very good. I wish my local highschool had a good baseline with space for me.

Thanks...

I tend to go back to the B&W pictures once the ISO settings go much above 2000. The conversions help hide some of the image quality issues that occur in such dark settings!

I coached the kid pictured in the last one. But, I coached him when he played baseball 5 years ago--when he was 12 years old. I had no idea who he was until someone pointed it out after looking at the pictures tonight. Back then, he was about 1/3rd of the size that he is now. Very nice kid.

I like what you did with #3 - I'm going to try to shoot the same photo but my twist is going to be a photo in B&W then use Photoshop and allow the team name to be in color.

Good stuff

I hope you don't mind that I stole your idea for #6. It is a great shot and I don't have a 14mm lens, so I can't recreate it exactly but it is a cool style of shot. A lot of people seem to like it.

I also like these, different feel. That gym must be great to shoot a day game with all that natural light?
