Basketball – candid shots

Action and motion. Speed, spirit, and sportsmanship.  These are the elements drew me into sports photography at the beginning.

Not a sports fan of any kind. I know basic rules of each game, but my mind is mostly set on capturing the moments of action and excitement. The facial expression of the athletes is what interests me. Under pressure, determined to win, never give up till the last minute. When there is time to shoot a basket, there is a chance. The players have no time to fake a smile or sneer, and all we see are honest and natural expressions. When the background is often crowded with people, black and white seem to illustrate the content better.
