Because I am working the late shift, I’ve been shooting a lot of basketball this week, In my quest to shoot photos I wouldn’t normally bother with, I spotted Sadie Porter, a WSU Crimson Girl’s dance team member as she flipped  her hair during a timeout break in the WSU vs. Texas Pan-American game  in the Spokane Arena. The first time I saw it, I missed the flip. The next time her dance team took the floor I was ready. It is just a fleeting moment, but one that I think is visually interesting to look at. Nikon D3s, Nikkor 300 mm  f.4, 1250th sec. at ISO 3200.

Slam dunk

The big game between Gonzaga University and Washington State University was nothing but an old fashioned smack-down of the Zags who have been faltering lately. I snapped this photo in the first few minutes of the game. It is always a relief to me to get a decent shot early. It means I can concentrate on making snaps and not freaking out that I don’t have THE shot yet. Nikon D3s Nikkor, 80-200 mm, 4000 ISO 1250 sec. F2.8
