My daughter's U14 club volleyball team competed at the Junior Olympics in Dallas last week and at AAU Nationals in Orlando in June. Here's a sample of some of my shots. C&C welcome...

Junior Olympics - Dallas Convention Center - pretty good light, most shot with 70-200mm f/2.8 at ISO1600 and around 1/500th.

AAU Nationals - Disney's Milk House - different perspective in bleachers right above the court.

3,5,6 and 8 are very nice shots. 1 is good timing and nice expression but a bit too soft. 5 & 8 though are very, very good. 5 for the timing, 8 for the expression. Nicely done! Must be nice to shoot volleyball with that much light :G

Thanks for the kind words. It was definitely nice to finish out the year with good light after some of the dungeons we played in.

I WANT THAT GYM.... well just a gym with such good lighting would be nice. 5 is a cracking shot, the floor making a great background. I've seen some gymnastics shooters using the floor as a background by shooting down and it works really well so hope to get a 2nd shooter to give it a go when I next do one.

Nice work.
