Basketball is BACK

It has been a while since I could post here but, finally, basketball season is back! Shaw and St Aug kick off the season and are doing fine. As of today, Shaw men are undefeated and St Aug men have lost only one. The lady teams are not fairing well.
Here are some images from recent games and trying to tweak my lighting for the games.

St. Aug vs. Va State

The VA State Trojans came to town on Sept. 19th to take on St. Augustine's college. Sort of a slow start with no real movement in the St Aug offense but after the passing game kicked in, St. Aug rolled onto a 27-14 victory. Shot with a pair of Canon EOS 1D Bodies and a Nikon D1H (!) digital camera on a 300/2.8 AF-I lens.

I called up the Sports Desk at the Charleston Daily Gazette in Charleston West VA concerning the game ,results, and photographs. Was not sure what would happen but checking Sunday morning...........and they published it!

It's neat to see something in a major non-market paper and hope more will follow in the future.

I was sent to cover the St. Aug Charleston WVa football game in Raleigh for The Carolinian on Sept 5th. Images were OK at best but gets the job done. One was picked up by the WVA Gazette-Mail in Charleston. Score was 43-41 Charleston (3-OT)

Shaw Scrimmage Football

ON 8-22, i went to get some shots of Shaw's scrimmage game to get an idea of what is coming for the season. Pictures are not as good as the St. Aug game but will work! Overcast skies but makes shooting easier.

Defensive Coach McGeorge, left talks with a player.

St Aug Scrimmage Football

Well, football season is on the way here and shot the St. Aug Scrimmage game for The Carolinian to get an idea of what's upcoming...........and to seee if i forgot how to shoot it. They're not too bad. Images shot with a Canon EOS 1D and 1D Mk2N with a 70-200 2.8L and 300/4L IS lenses.

Raleigh Adult Bball league Championships

On August 5th, the Adult League Championships were held at St. Aug 's Gym in Raleigh. The Phase II Warriors won a tough contest with a 107-105 score. Another season done in the Chavis league and I'm ready for football to start on August 29th. Two games in one day but can do it!

Railhawks soccer

On August first, I went to cover the Railhawks -Austin Aztex game in Cary for The Carolinian. Images are not too bad and marked the first time using the D2Hs at 1600. Worked great and much better than the D2h body. Cameras used here are the EOS 1D and the D2Hs.

Railhawks won 3-0.
