Volleyball action shots during practice

Written by Photography, Volleyball

We had a photographer come in during practice in order to “develop his portfolio”. He started by taking a group image of us blocking at the net (as a team). Though it was a fun experience, many of the following drills were not very realistic. He had three players dive simultaneously for a volleyball. Furthermore, he took a bunch of interesting shots of us against a black backdrop, but I’m sure he will apply a tad bit too much effects onto them (since he said he will apply “smoke and fire” during post processing).

Though Ray told us that the photographs will be given to us free of charge, the photographer hinted that aside from the ones he posted on Facebook, we will have to pay for the images. A huge disappointment considering we stayed in practice past 9:00pm. I guess I will have to wait and see how they turned out.
