Purdue Basketball Tunes Up For The Season In Their Exhibition
The exhibition game is always a hard one to shoot. It is played like a game, but it doesn’t count for anything. With some teams you feel like they are just phoning it in. Of course Purdue was pressuring and playing hard the entire game. They were diving on the floor for loose balls and everything else that they would do in a Big Ten game. That makes shooting the exhibition a bit easier.
The Photographer Tunes Up For the Season
I shoot my first basketball game of the season solo on Sunday. I wanted to make sure that I had a game under my belt before I did that. Part of the fun of shooting the exhibition is knocking the rust off for me as well. The players have been playing basketball for a while now. I really have not photographed basketball for a while. I really think that this will be a fun basketball season. This was the first game of that ride.
Being The Third Wheel
Normally being the third wheel is a bad thing. Thursday night I was the third photographer for Purdue, and that was far from a bad thing. They have an amazing team that makes great images. Just to be included in the photo gallery is pretty awesome. You can see our work from the game here.
