All-Star Game at 1/15th of a Second
The NBA All-Star game was in town recently. We covered the game with five shooters and an on-site editor. There were a ton of photographer shooting the game. There were two rows of photogs on the base boards and remotes hung from every available spot. My job was to shoot from the concourse and seating levels with a long lens. After I had taken a bunch of action photos I decided that I'd try and make something different so I slowed the shutter down to 1/15th of a second and panned along with the players. It's nice when things work out.
