a game inside a frame
When I returned to the United Center court Thursday night after sending my images from the 1st half, all the baseline photo positions were being taken up by other photographers and the LuvaBulls cheerleaders.
I wanted to shoot on the Bulls’ defensive end so that I could get them celebrating towards me if they made a last second shot to win the game.
The entire sideline was empty so I sat down about 10 feet down from the baseline.
I quickly realized that the San Antonio Spurs offensive scheme placed a player directly in front of my position.
I have always liked shooting images that have a frame inside a frame so I placed my wide angle on the ground and shot through the legs of the Spurs’ player.
Here is one of several frames where everything came together fairly well.
