Below are a few shots of a particular player from one team I photograph. She is the star player and can move like the wind. One slightly blurred shot below is of her trick pass. It looks like she's stumbling but it's actually a fake and then a sideways pass to another player. Fabulous to watch.

Technical: No flash; Mark II with 200/1.8 lens; ISO 800; F/2.2 at 1/400th; exposure compensation -1/3 to gain shutter speed; some processing applied.

Determined look



On a rush



Setting up the trick pass



Engaging the trick pass (straight sideways)

Nice job, Normcar!

Interesting style. It looks like she just flips it out to her side without looking.

Hi jb, that's exactly what she does. It fakes out both player and photographer alike.:? I appreciate the comment.

I love the richness of the colors your getting with that camera.

Even the green in the backgrounds looks good.

Very interesting player. Very fluid.

Thanks Terry, this camera model is expensive, but a very good tool for sports and wildlife photography.And the color saturation from that lens isoneof it's really fine features. It costs a pile but will probably last forever.

Theplayer featured here is indeed a very fluid player.
