Tonight is the last game of the season for my son's 5th grade Optimist's Basketball season - Beaton Photography sponsored the team, so I tried to bring my camera and document a few great plays of the season!
Lighting is often difficult in these gymnasiums, and especially adjusting white balance. But I used the Nikon D700 with my Nikkor 70 to 200mm lens. No flash and usually ISO's of 2000 captured most of these images. Sports photography is interesting as it captures a moment in time, and sometimes makes the players look a little silly - or at least not in great basketball form. Sorry about that boys! You look better than that in person!
All photos can be viewed online....
Thanks to all the volunteer coaches and referees that make the basketball program. And thanks to a few good volunteers, like my Heather & Kirk, for volunteering to keep score!
