I love to shoot sports. So I was really excited when I was asked by my daughters’ gymnastics coaches if I could shoot some practices and use the photos for the end of the year slide-show. It was a fun, eye opening time to shoot. I tried to be the “fly on the wall” during practice. Parents are not normally allowed to stay, and being a 6’3″ mammoth of a man, makes it kind of hard to hide in plain site. But the girls were themselves( at least I think they were ) and I shot away.The lighting in the gym is horrible and they don’t allow flashes for meets, so I shot available light. I am pretty happy with how they came out. I’ll be going back to shoot some more.
I’ll show you a few, but gotta save the rest for the slideshow.
See ya. Patrick
