It was another star studded jam packed day of Sports Advertising Photography working with the top 40 NBA draft picks for Panini America at the New York Knicks training facility in Tarrytown, New York. And just like NFLPA Rookie Premier, I set up two lighting setups on the same set. so I could take more portraits in the same amount of time.
I used my new 5D Mark III cameras last night for the first time shooting sports. I have to say this camera is no joke…. moving forward I just need to get some settings dialed in and these cameras will be perfect for what I do.
I shot my first NBA game of the season tonight… I don’t know if I was rusty or if it was the players. Then again the winning score was only 77 points.
My long road covering the NBA playoffs has come to an end tonight when the Miami Heat defeated the Chicago Bulls 83-80.
I was back at the United Center again last night…. while the lights from the Oprah show were still hanging from the ceiling, the luminaries were a lot hotter. The Miami Heat and LeBron James rebounded from a blowout loss in game one to beat the Chicago Bulls 85-75 and level their NBA semi-final series at one game apiece.
