Last weekend I was commissioned to shoot AVP Tour. They asked two things. Gritty look and tight shots. Now, these two might sound simple looking at my previous work but getting a tight shot in any sport involves a ball is hard. You have to close on the athlete and the ball has to be in the frame. Well at least most of the times… Oh and it had to be from the players point of view. These are easy tasks if I was doing a commercial shoot with a small production crew. During a live championship game is another story. Once it starts you can not move around, you are stuck to place where they show you.
I spend Saturday getting used to the venue and Sunday I had about 4 hours to get the shots. Thankfully the logos and products were visible and there were no clashing sponsor logos on athletes.
