A few weeks ago, we did action photos for the middle school volleyball team at Grace Christian. We went to one of their games and started snapping. Volleyball is probably the hardest sport to shoot, according to Chuck. Firstly, it’s low light because indoor volleyball is in a gym. Second, it’s a really explosive sport. Players are either standing or rapid motion. Capturing the brief second of action in a way that is good both technically and for the players is really difficult. This is similar to the difficulty in shooting swimming. Lastly, there are some obstacles to establishing a great shot – the net, the weird angles, etc. Long story short, it’s tricky, but it’s definitely worth it.
