Beach Classic Cerritos College – Track and Field

Yesterday I got to spend the day at Cerritos College for the Beach Classic track and field meet. It was the first time during Sports Shooter that I shot a sport that I am (…very…) familiar with. Since I was more familiar with what was going on, I tried to get creative. I spent the most time at pole vault the event I am most acquainted with to make the most interesting and clean shots. My three selects were all vaulting photos, but I think they all work really well together.

La Habra Boxing Club – La Habra, California

For my first day of Sports Shooter Academy X, I went to La Habra Boxing Club about a half hour away from Irvine where we are staying. Everyone at the boxing club was awesome. The club was an old church that was renovated. The sensei, Vek Visuddhidliam, was very welcoming to all of us shooting in his gym for the afternoon. The first and tenth photos were the ones chosen to be showcased in the workshop’s daily critique slideshow. The others are just ones that I liked, and a few of them are redundant. I am thinking that I might try a few of this in black and white. It is interesting to be critiqued by new people and not just the professors back at school. Everyone here has different work experience and different views on everyone’s shoots. I have learned a lot so far and can’t wait to keep shooting new events and sports today and tomorrow.

ADDED ——– Black and white.

I had a little extra time after uploading my photos so, I decided to see what these photos would look like in black and white since I almost never utilize this option. Here are the ones that I liked without color.

Sports portion – a rough edit.

This is my (very) rough edit of my sports portfolio so far. My sports archive is pretty extensive from over a long period of time. I have been going back and re-toning some of them which is making a difference in what I decide to add. I hope to spend my last semester shooting more since I will have more free time than I have ever had in college. I am really looking forward to the opportunity to utilize the time to work on some projects for myself.

…Another bus ride, another game…

So this game was our second in a row on the road, traveling from Hamilton, Ohio to stay in Dayton and going up to Toledo. It was a long day, but the stadium was nicer this time. The lighting still posed a slight problem but not quite as bad as the night before. Looking back at the photos from the night before, it was clear that it was the first game. I am hoping as the team gets more acquainted with each other, and I get back into the swing of shooting baseball, it will all come together. Here’s the shots from the game versus the Lake Erie Monarchs.

The season (and my internship) begin…

Today was the day the team and I have all been working toward, the first game. The game went pretty smoothly despite the long bus ride from Athens to Hamilton with more traveling to come the next day to Toledo. The Copperheads won the game which provided me with some great shots of the coach and players. Here are a few of my favorites from my (long) day.

Ohio University’s Women’s Basketball Versus Miami

I haven’t posted in awhile, so I figured I would go back and show what I have been doing during my time away from the blog. I shot these during the Ohio University’s women’s basketball game against Miami University at the beginning of January. I have learned shooting women’s basketball is much different from shooting men’s basketball. It’s almost an entirely different game. I really enjoy it and hope to shoot it again next season as this season begins to come to a close.

Ohio University Men’s Basketball | U.T. Martin

I shot the Bobcat’s men’s basketball team for the first time today. It was not too bad of an experience and learned a lot. Basketball has never been my strongest sport to shoot so I am hoping this season I will get some practice. Here’s some of what I got from today’s shoot. Not horrible considering my lack of basketball experience.
