(More) lots of basketball

I shot two games today, because the other photographer was shooting the dominant art for the sports section he got to take the Pocket Wizards with him.  I figured this may be the case so I planned ahead and brought my Canon and 85mm f/1.8.

Lets just say that combination is a beast at shooting in dark pits.  All these photos were retouched minimally, mainly just to fix white balance and crop.

The first game was between the Parkview Lady panthers and the Lowndes team.  It was one of those games where in order to not get any decent shots, you had to be a really terrible photographer.  The second game was a men’s game between North Gwinnett and Richmond Academy.  That one was more difficult because there weren’t as many drives to the basket, mainly jump shots from around the arc.
