Photos of the Week - 7 on the line

August 17, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I first started playing Ultimate my freshman year of high school.  I continued playing all through college, and have been part of the Twin Cities Ultimate League since 1992.

Needless to say, it is something that I've enjoyed playing and watching for many decades now.  However, being a player in a team sport doesn't leave a lot of opportunities to take pictures during a game.  This past Tuesday, though, I was able to bring my camera with me to the last game of the TCUL summer league for this year.

7 on the line.  Getting ready to receive.

Because Ultimate is a fast sport, it is not easy to take good photos.  Use a fairly large aperture (most of these were at f8 or wider) and a fast shutter to freeze the action.  I also found that I needed to zoom a lot less than I normally do.  Too close meant that part of the picture inevitably got cut off.  This is one case where cropping in camera was not a good idea.

Thanks to this year's team and all those I've played with in the past and in the future.

 

 

p.s.  The term Frisbee is trademarked.  Since other brands of flying discs are generally used, the name "Ultimate Frisbee" is now just "Ultimate".  For more information about the sport, check this:  http://www.whatisultimate.com/what-is-ultimate/
