Finding new angles to cover the same sport !!

Something every photographer comes to deal with, especially after cover the same sport for many years. You need to somehow be better/different than all the competition out there.

For me that has in the recent years meant exploring photographing basketball from above the basket. In one of the recent posts I posted an image from EuroCup game from behind the backboard. Now – a glimpse at what the action looks like when looking down on the basket from the ceiling.

This image was taken in a British Basketball League game at Worcester Arena on Halloween 2014 – in a game featuring Worcester Wolves and Bristol Flyers. In the action Flyers, Greg Streete is attempting to block a shot by Wolves, Alex Owumi.

A longer post is coming with more images from the game – and for photographers a longer post explaining the instalment of the camera and other practicalities.
