Basketball – St Annes 11/10/2012

(written by Bill)

I had the opportunity to take some photo’s of my grandson’s basketball game who plays on the St Annes team. Both sides played a great game but St Annes came out on top when the final buzzer sounded, yah!

It’s always tough shooting these night-time indoor games.  The movement is fast with lighting less than desirable so a flash is an absolute necessity.  I try my best to shoot a split second after the ball leaves the players hands so that I don’t inadvertently blind them.  I guess I did okay since I did not receive any complaints from the spectators, referees, nor players.

Hope you enjoy…

  1. Your photographs bring back memories of the minor injuries suffered in the game. Mine when I broke my index finger reaching for the ball and my daughter’s when she sprained her ankle within fifteen minutes of the game. Those were the days….

    You caught the action beautifully, Bill. Looks like a well played game. If there were any fouls they were probably unintentional.

    I remember those days well: my son playing basketball, me trying to get a good shot. Yours are excellent, mine were horrible. 🙂

      As I stated, basketball is really tough to photograph so I really do appreciate your feedback. I’ve seen your wonderful photos and I bet your basketball shots are are far better than you give yourself credit for…. 🙂 bill
