Volleyball: Northwestern vs. Minnesota

Shooting volleyball was a very different kinds of sports coverage than I had ever done before. The pace of the game is very quick and the action moves in a dizzying non-linear manner that is difficult to follow through a 300mm (the only long lens i had access to today.) Towards the end of the game I began to get the hang of it, prefocusing on the net above key players and allowing the action to move into my frame, but by that point I had missed most of my best opportunities. I’ll be going back as soon as possible to really do it justice.

Shot of the day: NU players Katie Dutchman (center) and Madalyn Shalter, losing late in game set, react as the ball sails past them on a Minnesota spike.
