Commack High School Girls Varsity Volleyball vs. Connetquot - Suffolk Finals
Another hard -played volleyball match by the Commack girls. Didn't quite end up as they'd have liked but they played very well to the very end and had a record season.
So, after you shoot a few thousand volleyball photos during the season they all start to look the same and you look for some new angles to mix things up. Luckily, this match was held at SCCC Brentwood and, being a finals match, there were lots of people in the stands. There was also plenty of room to move around the court, at least on three sides.
Sometimes shots of the crowd are as much fun as the players. And since this was an important match there was no lack of crowd reaction. I always try to get the students from the high school; they show up with great costumes and plenty of enthusiasm. I also try to shoot the crowd after an important play or controversial call by the officials. You'll see both of those types of photos in this gallery. Also, when you have a large crowd it makes for a great background. You can shoot a little wider than you normally would, which I also did in this gallery.
That's it for fall sports. It was a busy season and an even busier post-season since we had so many teams in playoffs. Onward to winter sports ...
