Last Saturday I shot the Marietta vs. Parkview girls first round playoff basketball game for the AJC. Parkview was the #1 team in the state and undefeated. They ended up losing by 1 point after they missed a last second shot. Everyone was stunned.
During a game like this, where David defeats Goliath, it’s all about the celebration afterwords. Rarely will they run a game action photo as the dominant art for the story, maybe if they need a second photo, but never as the first or only. Basically, that shot of the celebration is the only thing that really matters.
