On Nov. 9, 2018, the University of Georgia women’s basketball team took on the St. Bonaventure University Bonnies in their season opener at Stegeman Coliseum in Athens, Georgia. UGA defeated their opponents 67-40.
This was my first attempt at taking basketball photos. Overall, I was satisfied with how they turned out. It’s extremely difficult to get photos at the net in sharp focus. Players are often moving extremely quickly, and autofocus typically lags in a dark environment like Stegeman. To make matters more complicated, the referees often stand right in front of photographers. It’s not possible to get the other angles from the opposite side of the net on one end of the stadium due to cramped space.
