I GREATLY enjoy photographing basketball. Sure. It doesn’t typically produce the same sort of iconic—epic—images that American football does, but few sports can. However, it’s fast-paced, intimate, LOUD, energetic, frenetic, the rosters are deep enough so you don’t get bored, but shallow enough that all the players feel familiar…And from a photographer’s standpoint, everyone is on a fairly even playing field; you don’t have to have a ton of expensive gear to shoot good basketball shots.
Over the past four days or so, I’ve now shot three pretty big games.
Saturday, the seventh, the Men took down Virginia Tech.
Then the following day (my 22nd birthday!) the Women DECIMATED Duke…
And then today…
TODAY THE FSU MEN DEFEATED THE FREAKING DUKE BLUE DEVILS.
YES. YES. YES!!!
I’m stoked. It’s going to rank the team pretty darn high.
So here is my ENTIRE set of images from the game. The above shots from the VT and WBB game were just a selection of the images, but below is ALL my MBB Duke shots.
I know that’s a lot of pictures…but MAN was I pretty stoked. One of my better games this season! Can’t wait for more ranked opponents!
