I the past few weeks, I’ve photographed some ball games in tiny gymnasiums. Friday night was no different. I photographed a boys basketball game in New Hope, Pennsylvania for the Intelligencer and Courier Times. With the threat of snow, the start time for the game was pushed up by one and a half hours. Even so, the small New Hope Solebury High School Gymnasium was still packed. The floor is so tight to the walls that there is literally about a foot and a half between the two. Since there wasn’t much space, I decide to sit in the right corner on the side which Holy Ghost Prep would shoot first. It payed off as, except for the first three minutes, they dominated the game. I love when I shoot a game and there is plenty of action. Sitting in the corner I used my Nikon D800 with a 180mm and Nikon D700 with an 85mm 1.8.
For video, I shot at 3200 ISO with 30 frames per second at f8.
It was a good night. 🙂
