Hitting the hardboards once again

I found myself getting a call to shoot the #15 ranked Wisconsin Badgers taking on the .500 season WKU Hilltoppers. Expecting a route I decided to give a try shooting the game on two A9’s from Sony. WKU surprised all and made the game incredibly interesting and I found myself suddenly stressed covering a Big Ten upset with a a camera I have only used once before. As Sony preaches, the autofocus system in the A9 is out of this word. I felt strange shooting and no click of the motor drives but working in 19 frames a second proved to be beneficial at times. The highlight of the night? Having my daughter, who is in her second semester of her photojournalism degree, accompany me as an assistant, she got to shoot with my Canon gear.

Gabi Broekema ponders her next moves as she covers her first sporting event. I think the 400 2.8 fits her well!
