Something New!

With the weather playing havoc with any notions of outdoor sports snapping, I got the opportunity to take pictures for Athlone Basketball Club on Friday 15th January in the newly built Bower gym! Basketball was always a sport that I was unbelievably rubbish at, and so anything basketball related usually went into my “ignore pile” … but a determination to snap something led me to giving it a go.

Not having a hugh interest in the sport, or knowing the rules, made it difficult to judge where potential passes etc were intended so I was flying blind. Having said that it was enjoyable to add it to my list of sports. Using my 40D I had to bump up the ISO to 1600 to get any sort of decent shutter speed … which of course led to somewhat noisey images.

How and ever the gang at the Basketball Club were happy to have some snaps of their convincing victory over League newcomers Tullamore.
