Week of January, 6-12th, 2013

Just getting back into the groove this week from winter break. With only two games/events this week, I was able to ease back into shooting and getting re-acclimated with school.

On Thursday night I got a chance to test out my new Canon 70-200 f/2.8 lens out. The Kentucky women’s basketball team hosted the #20/21 ranked Texas A&M who was only 2 years removed from winning a national championship and came out on fire. Kentucky went in down at the half and worked from behind pretty much the whole game until pulling away near the end to win 65-62 in front of a loud crowd on Thursday January, 10, 2013 at Memorial Coliseum.

On Friday and Saturday, the Kentucky track and field team hosted the Kentucky Invitational indoor track meet. I had never covered a track meet so I spent Friday testing out idea’s and lighting to prepare for the majority of the events that would take place Saturday. I was able to test out my many idea’s and use them to capture each event.
