I am not properly trained or practiced in sports photography (weddings and portraits are more my focus) so I really had no expectations going into Saturday’s tournament. My goal was simply to try to get individual players a shot of themselves on the court that made them smile. If I fail, no harm, no foul.
Tennis introduces the additional element of line to a composition — lines, lines and more lines! I just got lucky to have a handful of images that “saw” the lines and ball placement well.
On another note, our son made his high school tennis team this week! We’re very excited for him, and I’m looking forward to more practice with lines this spring.
