Snow Storms and Basketball

For some reason I am asked to photograph results of every little storm that comes through town.

Tonight, the T-Bird men won their game, so there is cause for much celebration.

What Makes Up a 10 Hour Day

In Lieu of Basketball

I shot basketball again today, but seeing as that is all I've posted recently, here are some portrait photos I shot yesterday instead:

Flashing High School Basketball

As I've said, I don't have much experience using flashes and usually try to avoid it whenever humanly possible. However, I do want to become a better photojournalist, so I promised myself I would pull out the strobes for this year's high school basketball season since high school gyms have notoriously terrible lighting for action shots.

Tonight, I set them up for the first time and here's what I got:
