Squash? I have heard of the sport, but never knew that much competitive play existed. Let alone high schools that have competing teams.
Baltimore private school McDonogh is home to one of those teams and the number 2 U17 player in the nation.
Working with high school athletes is always fun, they are serious athletes on the court and normal kids off the court.
Starting off with some posed portraits I had a great time trying to match the color temperature in the small dim court area with my strobes. I pushed a handful that I was able to get natural colors but ended up liking some of the outtakes with conflicting colors more.
After portraits her and her trainer got to playing and I just made some images of their short match. Definitely a strange sport to photograph. You can only take images from behind the glass (for obvious reason) and they are almost always facing the other direction. So a lot of sitting and waiting with a wide angle lens.
Not sure if I will ever have the opportunity to photograph this sport again but I definitely would not be opposed to it.
Until next time, take care!
