For the sports assignment I decided to go the exhibition basketball game against Harris-Stowe. I figured that since it was an exhibition game there would not be as many students in the student section as usual and that I would be able to get pretty close and get some good shots. At first it was hard to get used to shooting inside Chaifetz; the artificial lighting is not very camera-friendly at all, so it took me a little bit to get everything adjusted to the right levels. After that, the hardest part was just being able to follow the action and capture the moments that I wanted to. I found the best way to go about this was to follow the action with the camera ready to go and to try and anticipate when moments of big action would happen. The multiple release shutter mode was my best friend on this assignment.  Even after adjusting the ISO to the highest setting possible, some photos were still a bit on the dark and dull side, so I went in with Photoshop and brightened them up a little bit as well as increased the vibrance and saturation ever so slightly. Overall I was very pleased with how this shoot turned out. Even though it was difficult, in the end I think that a combination of perseverance and luck paid off in this photo.
