Basketballers Play Basketballs
Walking past this game of basketball late at night I noticed these pillars created an interesting frame. So, I got my gear set up as fast as I could. Then I guessed my settings because I wanted this exact sort of exposure. I hit the shutter and my test shot was perfect, unfortunately, this was my test shot.
These guys broke immediately after this shot and slowly started walking away. I’ll have to go back another night, but I still feel kind of strange being the weirdo with a camera taking pictures of sweaty dudes playing basketball.
It’s sort of artistic I guess, but I just really love the action that this sort of exposure time highlights. It’s fluid, but the slower moving players anchor the action. I’d love to see how it works with other sports. In fact, I think this method would create incredible shots in the pits at a Formula 1 race.
