Our daughter attended a women’s lacrosse camp with other high schoolers where they learned tactical strategies from top college coaches and had fun competing as teams in a final camp championship. I took a camera along for the Saturday morning finale.
I shoot with two cameras for weddings. But this was a last minute decision to shoot this personal project. And it was hot! So I grabbed one camera and got all the coverage below with only one lens (300 f/4 IS). The capture format was JPEG.
Even though I shot with just one prime lens–and a long one–I used it creatively to approximate the view of a medium and wide angle on some shots for variety and scene-setting. Sports is all about peak action and drama. But, as always, I tried to capture the essential narrative of that morning’s athletics and tell the story of the event.
