Recent I had the opportunity to cover Maryland Madness for The Baltimore Sun.
As a Towson University graduate, I had photographed similar events while a student there but nothing this elaborate. Maryland takes their sports a little more seriously than Towson does.
An elaborate light show helped make for interesting images during the introductions of the men's and women's basketball teams.
I set myself up all the way on one end of the court, anticipating a spot lit action frame.
But before they made their run for the hoop I decided to shoot them on the other side of the arena. Capitalizing on the interesting lights I found a nice clean background and waited for each player to pass through.
Some were very animated when they were introduced others not as much. I liked the simplicity of the single raised hand and the black and red background matching the colors of his uniform in the image above.
Overall a very enjoyable assignment.
Until next time, take care!
