TCU / Colorado State Men’s Basketball – From the Cheap Seats

I got quite a few keeper images from Saturday’s TCU/CSU basketball game at Daniel Meyer Coliseum.  I was shooting from our seats in section C and the 13th row. Using Nikon D700 and a Nikkor AF-D 80-200mm f/2.8

There are several action sequences but watch J.R. Cadot clean-up his missed shot with a great rebound and put-back.  Another where Thorn dishes a nice baseline pass to Cadot for an assist and finish by Cadot.  Another series of one of many of Williams’ patented low post shots and an impressive slam by Green.  I missed the focus on McKinney’s powerful slam in the first half but I show him about to go up strong.  There is a sweet jumper from Thorn and a nice pass from Anderson.

The TCU Showgirls work hard too so we can’t forget them.  Plus our granddaughters could care less about the basketball but they love the Showgirls.

These images are from my first attempt to shoot basketball.  I was shooting from my seats at TCU’s Daniel Meyer Coliseum.  I was using a Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8 AF-D lens handheld with the Nikon D700.  Lessons learned include using a faster shutter speed (used 1/500) and exposure compensation to make up for the poor lighting.  If I had been real serious about getting true keepers I would have moved closer to floor level.  On this day I was there to practice and learn something while enjoying a TCU win.
