Photographing Basketball With A 400MM Lens

Getting Tight With The 400

Yesterday at the Purdue women’s game I had a crazy plan. I would shoot the entire game with my 400mm lens. At the beginning I also had my 24-70 around my neck, but I ditched that before the start of the second half. I really had fun trying something new by just following the action very tight. Of course I was not in charge of the action for the day so I could really gamble a bit.

Taking The Gamble Even Further

I plan on shooting the men’s game tonight as well as the women’s game on Friday with my 400mm lens as well. I really want to see what I can come up with by the end of this experiment. At the end of the game yesterday I started experimenting a little, and that is usually what leads to the most interesting images. One thing that it does for sure is to make sure that the images I submit for the gallery look much different than the other images. It builds more of a complete gallery I hope.
