Photographing College Tennis: Purdue vs. Toledo

Photographing Tennis Again

Saturday night I was back at the Schwartz tennis center to make a few photos. I only stayed for the doubles portion of the event, but I still had a lot of fun doing that. I wanted to try a couple of things out that I thought about after my last tennis job so this was the perfect opportunity to do so.

Slowing It Down Again

I have been having a lot of fun with slow shutter speeds lately. I am sure that it is too much fun, but it is a fun way to get a little creative. What I love about using it at a tennis match is being able to see the trail of the ball. It is moving so fast that it goes a long way in 1/25th of a second. You can really see just what these athletes are dealing with. With the mirrorless cameras I don’t have a blackout for the time that the shutter is open. That really helps when making these panning photos.

The Emotion Of A Close Match

The doubles portion of the night was very evenly matched. That provided me with some opportunities to capture some emotion. If you have followed this blog for any length of time then you know that I love to capture emotion. When a match stays close like this one did it provides a lot of chances to grab some emotional moments.

The Week In Photos

Last week was a fun week. I was able to get out and make a lot of photos. The crazy weather had me in warm weather as well as making snokeh photos again. Who knows what this week will bring? You can see my favorite photos from last week here.
