NCQC @ SJSU Photos

I feel like I’m plateauing as a photographer. I’m getting more comfortable in Lightroom, I’m not afraid to crop my photos to get the composition I want, but the blur problem is still very real. I haven’t had much time to put a lot of work into improving my skills before I get to the uploading and editing photos phase. I also wonder if my current setup is good enough to get the crisp shots that my friend and inspiration, Seabass Photography, does.

Excuses. I hate them.

I’m planning on testing some new things at local practices before I head out to West and Northwest Regionals to shoot (and in the case of the former, get some play time, too). I’d like to shoot at US Quidditch Cup 10 but I don’t think my skills are there yet. I still have time to improve, but not much.Until then, here are some of my favorites and some musings on how I can do better.

Until then, here are some of my favorite shots from this weekend and some musings on how I think I can do better. Find the whole NCQC @ SJSU gallery here.

It’s always a thrill capturing those moments when players look like they’re flying. Harry Potter doesn’t keep me in this sport, but it did get me here in the first place.
candid-steven-and-forrest
Candid moments just off the pitch are some of my favorite subjects. I’m a big fan of the human element of the sport. Forrest recruited his fraternity brother Steven this year.
damnit-clike
This could have been an amazing photo. Damnit, Clike!
matt-and-ra
Call me vain, but I always wished for more photos of me when I was running tournaments. So I decided to do Ra and Matt a solid for going above and beyond this weekend.
jose-dunk
Jose always gives me great drive to the hoop and dunk shots. I just wish I could shoot them better.
pfenning-dunk
Ryan always gives me great aerial dunk shots. I still wish I could shoot them better.
