We started on Friday and continued through Saturday night. We played Friday at 4:30pm and won, then went onto play three games on Saturday. 10:15am, 2pm then for the all the marbles at 8:15pm. We didn’t lose one game. Our girls were animals on the court.
I didn’t take my Nikon with me on Friday because Elizabeth told me it was a dark gym but it was actually a well lit gym so I took my camera on Saturday. Below you will find a gallery of the photos I took of the two games, the 10:15am and the 2pm.
I was practicing again with my camera so the shots of the 10:15am game were close ups and I made it a point to shoot in “portrait mode.” I keep my finger smashed on the shutter button so my Nikon D7000 was shooting at 6fps. I had a lot of photos to cull though between games (1,200 and 600 respectively) but I really liked them. I did minimal post processing on them. It was a challenge to keep my shutter speed high to freeze the action but for the most part, I got my shots. And the shot above? I shot that with my iPhone! Didn’t take my Nikon for the championship game, wanted to chew my nails off like the rest of our parents.

Here is the 2nd album of photos. I used a different lens (24-70mm) so the photos weren’t as close but in post processing, I gave the photos a more “edgy look.”
Thanks for letting me share,
