HOLIDAY ROCK TOURNAMENT IN LAS VEGAS, NV

HOLIDAY ROCK TOURNAMENT IN LAS VEGAS, NV

I have a system that I use for covering games for my documentary on the Findlay College Prep team.  Since I’m by myself, and I’m responsible for getting video, audio and still images, I break the game up in to quarters.  Usually I spend the entire first half shooting video.  Findlay hasn’t lost a game this season, and when they win it’s usually by a large margin.  So by the 3rd quarter the game is over, and the passion that was present in the first half is gone.  I’m not saying they don’t play hard in the second half, because they do.  But by the end of the 3rd quarter, Findlay has put their opponent away and the game is basically over.  SO, I like to get all the emotion that’s present when the game is relatively close on video in the first half.  This picture was taken in the championship match of the Rock Holiday Tournament against Rice (NY).  I stood behind the trophies they had set up in the corner and waited for someone to take a jumpshot.  It took a few frames, but I finally got one that resembeled the model on the trophy.
