Commack High School Girls Varsity Volleyball vs. Northport - Suffolk Semifinals

Commack High School Girls Varsity Volleyball vs. Northport - Suffolk Semifinals

Big win for the Commack girls volleyball team over Northport in the Suffolk AA Semifinals. Onward to the Suffolk finals.

This game was played to a packed house. It was SRO even with the extra benches brought in. A full crowd makes for a great background and I try to take advantage of it when shooting and cropping in post-production. Crowd reaction is a great thing to include in your photos. In our gym I can only get the crowd when shooting from the short end of the court. We don’t have enough room on the north side of the court so the refs won’t let you stand there unless you’re in the corner, which is too bad because that would give me the bleachers in the background. For that reason I’ll move to the west end, which is the short side of the court, and get the crowd on the opposite side.

While we’re on the subject of crowds, I try to position myself on the side of the court close to the Commack bench at the end of the game, especially if they win. I know the girls on the bench are going to rush the players on the court and that always makes for a nice shot.
