Gonzaga Men's Tennis

April 11, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Gonzaga Men's Tennis took on BYU and San Diego this weekend. As a team they finished 4-3 against BYU and 6-1 against San Diego. 

This was the first time I have ever photographed Tennis, and I really should have done a little homework to understand the game more. I have no idea how the scoring works beyond each individual set, and that doubles apparently is scored differently than singles. However, that didn't totally impair my photographs. I got a little tired of the same photo over and over again of a player hitting the ball (pretty common theme in sports photography as it turns out) and so I tried a few fun things like using a floor camera and panning. 

Here is my take from these two match-ups:
