West Lafayette Wins in a Runaway Against Frontier
Last night I was back at West Side shooting the varsity basketball game. From the start you could see that West Lafayette was going to have their way with Frontier. They imposed their will, and by the end of the game cleared their bench. I had some fun at the game as well trying some things out that I normally would not do during the gameplay. I had the Canon 50mm f/1.4 on my main camera again. I like the look that it gives me, and as the game was nearing the end I went all the way up to 1.4 to see what would happen. It was a little rough around the edges, but when the action is in the center I don’t mind it so much. In a pinch I could see where you could use a large aperture like that.
Trying Another Remote
With a little success under my belt I placed a remote in a spot that I had looked at a couple of weeks ago. A small ledge that would nearly give me the same view as I had Wednesday at the Purdue women’s game. I like the fact that I can have a different viewpoint. The photo above is a great example of that. From my viewpoint about ten feet camera right I was blocked by the players arm as he shot. This angle allowed me to make the photo. I think that I am limiting myself a bit by using my older camera for this remote. The ISO is not that great so I cannot use the shutter speed that I would like to. For the final home game of the year I may have to try something different. For now it is a nice experiment.
Below are a few other photos that I liked from the game. You can view the full gallery here.
