Four basketball games in a single day can make for a long day, but I had a lot of fun being back in the mix. I also simply loved shooting with the Nikon D7000 and having the option to shoot at 500/sec without flash. Being able to push the camera to ISO 2500 and still have publishable images is a new thing for me.
During the tournament I also used my old Nikon D200, and though I was able to get a few images from it, they took a lot more work in Photoshop and still are not quite as nice.
In all I submitted 17 images to The Gallup Independent from this assignment, and they published two. Here are the images that I shot.
