Photo Assignment 2 – Lacrosse Game

This week I decided to take photos of the girl’s varsity lacrosse game. This was new for me since I’m more comfortable of taking close up shots of things. I also have a hard time following the action at games I’ve never watched before. I’m pleased with my best photo because of the interesting contrast between blurred players and still ones.

I learned from this assignment that it is difficult to get nice shots without a telephoto lens. A lot of my photos included awesome action shots, but were extremely grainy from the zoom. It was also a challenge to get still photos with a fast shutter speed because the game was during the night so I had limited light. This photo turned out nice because I experimented with a slower shutter speed to get some interesting motion blur from the players. This wasn’t my favorite assignment because of the cold and the difficulty of getting clear shots, but I enjoyed being a part of the very small student section.
