    Re: Volleyball Tournament Action

    Good stuff, Larry. My favorites are #1, #2, and #4. You caught a rare commodity in #1, namely, a left handed hitter. I don't see many of those aground here. D700 + 70-200 VR?

    I shot five volleyball matches yesterday at a high school volleyball championships event, so I have lots of images that i could post here, but I am reluctant to do so due to the lack of responses. You and I seem to be the about the only ones on this forum who are interested in volleyball. Nobody seems to reacting to our comments about the shortage of replies.

    not too bad! I found shooting volleyball from above the best or at the end of the court if possible

    I have struggled with shooting locations with volleyball. I have tried several but none seem to be just what I am looking for to get the widest variety of shots.

    Re: Volleyball Tournament Action

    Shooting locations are tuff in VB. Got to shoot in back if you want faces. I like shooting from stands in dark gyms. You get more light that way. Nice job on the pictures I like all your work.

    @Bob really busy finishing football at the moment. VB is over for me this year. I will post some shots ASAP. You do have another VB shooter on here

    Larry,

    It looks to me like three of your shots were taken at three of my favorite locations for shooting volleyball.

    Photo #1 appears to have been taken from low on the sideline in the vicinity of the ten foot line.

    Photo #2 appears to have been shot from high in the stands.

    Photo #5 appears to have been taken from the end of the court.

    Re: Volleyball Tournament Action

    Your right Bob I changed location each set in this match and seemed to find something I liked about each location. Getting good face reactions is prime goal and each location had its advantages and disadvantages. At any rate VB is over for me this season and it's on to basketball.

    Thanks for the looks and comment Tony.
