Basketball: Georgia vs. Georgia Tech

Before yesterday’s Georgia Bulldogs vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets basketball game, one of the other photographers on the floor asked me who I thought would win.  I said I thought Georgia would, but it would be a close game.  I had no idea how close though as the final score would turn out to be 73-72.  It was really an exciting game, and luckily US Presswire had a second shooter there, Paul Abell, who covered one half the court while I covered the other.  It made my life easier in those last few minutes where I didn’t have to figure out what side of the court I wanted to be on to get the potentially game winning shot.

For the game I also tried out a pole cam, but this one was higher up than I’ve tried in the past.  I liked it better and normally I’m not a fan of pole shots, but I think these came out alright.

Shot with my tilt-shift lens.
Two things about this photo 1) that camera sitting on the goal post is mine and is how I got some of the shots I posted here today, and 2) the guy in the white “Jackets” hoodie with the yellow hat in the top right corner is my roommate.  I didn’t realize he was at the game until he got home and told me and I noticed him in the photo.
