Basketball - KHS vs Venus 2/13

I was happy to make it out to the last regular-season home-game for the Lions vs. Venus Bulldogs match-up. (Boys)

With a 77-37 home win, you can certainly expect plenty of highlights, which is good for photographers! I am a bit saddened that the season is ending right when I feel like I am finally getting some nice shots.

One thing I have been playing with at previous games was slow-shutter panning type shots... these turned out nicely I thought...

The game action was fast and furious all evening, with lots of photo opportunities.

Lucky catch... a Venus player using his face to block a pass down the court..

As I was leaving, the KHS vs. Royse City varsity soccer game had 10 minutes remaining... got a few shots in..

Time for some new lights at the stadium, you know, for better photos.

Happy Valentines and have a great weekend!

  1. I'm always amazed that we can shoot the same stuff in completely different ways and end up with the same lighting. Good stuff.
