Man, it’s been a long time, at least it feels like, since I shot sports. Being back in Ruston has it’s perks. I do a lot of work for Louisiana Tech and that lands me courtside/sideline a lot. One great great thing about being at Tech is how laid back it is. When I shoot LSU, it just seems so intense, not so much here. Lastnight Tech took on New Mexico State. The Bulldogs fought hard but in the end came up short. I’m proud of Tech this year. They have a solid team and seem to be on the brink of great things. For me, the game seemed a little rusty. It took a while to get used to the speed of basketball again. But I think I got some pretty good shots. Can’t wait for the next one. Also, it’s great to see all the old friends at the game…..it’s good to be back.
One thing I find interesting about shooting basketball are the little elements of the game. Things like the writing on the shoes…
…and I also find the tattoos to be very interesting.
I also just liked this next shot a lot. Not sure why. Just cool to me.
One thing I’ve never done but really wanted to do, is shoot players when they are being introduced. And I still haven’t. These shots were taken by a young up and coming sports photographer, and son of a good friend of mine, Aaron Boersma. Remember that name. I think we will be seeing good things in the coming years from him.
