The Purdue Volleyball Team Gears Up For the 2017 Season

Last night I was back in Holloway Gymnasium to see the Purdue volleyball team play once again. The last time I saw them play was in their NCAA Tournament game in Missouri last fall. Now that the fall sports season has really started it is great to see the Boilermakers getting the rust out in front of the fans. Heck as a photographer who has not shot this sport since last year it was nice to get out and shoot it again before I start shooting some tournaments coming up.

Dusting Off the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 Lens

This year I think my 24-70mm lens needs to get some more use. Back when I picked it up from another photographer it was my go to lens. With better cameras and better light to shoot in I have relied on the Canon 24-105mm f/4 a little more. For field sports in good light I think that I will stick with that plan. For my indoor work though I like the fact that I can get to f/2.8 if I need too.

A Crazy Year

This year I don’t have a tournament booked in Holloway for the first time since 2013. With all of my other travel and work off campus it just didn’t fit into the schedule this year. That is too bad as for the first time Holloway now has air conditioning. Even with nothing on the books I bet that I make it to see this team a few times this year. They are too exciting not to watch play.

More Photos From the Match

It is always fun to shoot for Purdue University. To see my work alongside the great team that they have there is always fun. Yo can view my Exposure gallery on their website here. This coming week will have a lot of volleyball in it so stay tuned.
