You might have noticed that the NBA is one of my favorite sports. So I was super excited when the NBA announced the design of their new home arena, The Oracle, which opened this weekend in Oakland. The first thing I noticed about this new arena is its new name; it’s The Oracle! The basketball practice at Oracle Arena was a little boring to watch, yes. But these guys have done a great job at making a home just for watching basketball. This is an incredible project and I can’t wait to see what else they can do with this stadium once it’s open.
I’ll be honest, when I first started composing this post, I had no idea what basketball photography was all about. I spent the better part of last year going through Instagram to get my ink on the basketball game, but wouldn’t have known if it wasn’t for Basketball Newz. This blog is made up of a collection of images from different teams and leagues competing in professional basketball and online coverage from Sports Magazine to NBA YouTube channel as well as my own YouTube Channel which I set up specifically for this article.
I photographed my son’s first basketball game and I never thought anything could come of it. But now I’m looking at photography as a part of my athletic profession. Basketball is such a beautiful game and taking photos can bring back some of the joy of watching someone play that game. So I decided to take some shots while he was playing before I busted out the camera. The purpose of these photos is to highlight how easy it is to take great photographs, whether they are close up or far away shots. I hope this helps you get started with getting the best out of your camera, no matter the angle.
This blogger is passionate about basketball photography. He loves this camera and he’s been using it for years. This blog will act as a platform for him to share his love for the sport. Plus, he prides himself on using the best lenses as well as the most-cutting-edge technology out there. He teamed up with the Leadville Bicycle Shop to bring us this tip: “I use the Nikon D3200 instead of the D40x.” And it works! The Nikon D3200 is one of the best-selling point and shoot cameras in existence.
If you haven’t heard of professional basketball photography, you’re missing the point. Professional basketball photography has been around for decades, yet it’s still incredibly unique. The hipster basics that we’ve all heard about, but never have the skills to actually shoot a game. Well thanks to Jordan Brand and his image, we can take our skills outside the door and put them on film. This is something that I am a total fan of, so I’m going to share with all of you my very first professional photographer trip to Memphis for an NBA game between the Memphis Grizzlies and the Indiana Pacers.
Today, we are going to show you how to take a picture of the basketball. You can take pictures of basketballs and even groups of 3 players or better yet, people in general. However, if you’re looking for something a little more difficult or perhaps you’d like to try out something else, this guide is for you. Starting off with the basics, an ESPN.com article recently spoke about how some games already have lists of exactly what players are wearing on certain players on various teams.
