    be watching the action Click on the photo to see it larger and you ll see just how bad it is A big challenge is in catching the action at just the right moment like when one of the hitters is making contact with the ball I m lucky to have a camera a Nikon D90 with a reasonably fast burst rate that is I can hold the shutter down and supposedly get off 4 5 frames per second But even so I was constantly missing the action Four and a half frames per second is not a lot when it comes to sports photography I think the pros have cameras that shoot nine or more frames per second Eventually I caught on to the need to anticipate to see a play developing then to start shooting before the player goes up to hit the ball and not stop shooting until the play is over So I d hold the shutter down and fire off eight or 10 shots per play And most of the time I still missed the money shot For example here s Blair Brown about to hit it And here is the very next frame a split second later obviously it s after she hit it So I came away from Rec Hall last night even more impressed with the pro photographers who shoot sports It s clear that getting the money shot is a combination of skill equipment experience and a little bit of luck Below is probably the best shot I got last night at least in terms of catching the right moment It s of freshman outside hitter Deja McClendon who led the team with 20 kills and who s going to be a lot of fun to watch over the next three years Even that one has its limitations if you click on it to view it larger you ll see Mostly I don t like the fact that your eye probably goes to Alyssa D Errico No 12 first then notices McClendon after that Clearly I ll need to spend some more time in Rec Hall next season to work on this sort of thing In any case the Penn State women three time defending national champs now head to Kansas City for an NCAA semifinal match against Texas Cal meets USC in the other semifinal You should be able to see the matches on ESPN2 Tina Hay editor P S One of our top five most popular blog posts of all time was this one featuring a short video clip from our photo shoot with the women s volleyball team in early 2009 it was for our March April 2009 cover story Check it out if you haven t already Share this Email Print Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google LinkedIn Tumblr Like this Like Loading Related Entry filed under Uncategorized Tags Arielle Wilson Blair Brown Deja McClendon NCAA women s volleyball tournament photographing volleyball sports photography Images of Mount Nittany Big

    Molly Trolley which they had apparently rented for the day Oh well I figured and I drove on But then it occurred to me that they might be going somewhere else for more photos so I turned the car around and followed the trolley As they headed down Burrowes Road past the IST Building I had a suspicion they would turn into the lot for the Alumni Center which has become a popular place for wedding photos I was right I tagged along as the wedding photographer set up some shoots at the gazebo and the bridge Ridge Riley s Bridge it s officially called outside our offices The bride and groom turn out to be Kaitlin Infield 07 and Nicholas Bevins 07 who were getting married on New Year s Eve in Eisenhower Chapel The photo shoot took place about an hour before the wedding and the snowfall we had gotten in the morning made a perfect backdrop Here s a collage of three shots I took click on them to see them bigger I should mention that the photographer Amanda Kraft of Lancaster was a good sport in tolerating my presence at her photo shoot I learned long ago from my brother Chris who is a professional photographer that if an amateur photographer or any friend or family member with a camera shows up at a wedding shoot it can be an unwelcome distraction The professional photographer ends up with images where half of the wedding party is looking at the camera and the other half is looking off at something else like me in this case So in retrospect I don t actually recommend doing what I did yesterday But I thought you d enjoy seeing the result Tina Hay editor P S You can subscribe to
