How to shoot Squash (or not) - 3

Lesson three: the glass.

 

All sorts of reflections can be seen on the glass. If an advertiser does not opt to get space inside the court, there is still the possibility to stand up a banner somewhere behind and have a fair bit of brand visibility.  

 

The Indonesian player (orange) has no trouble wrapping up this match while his Myanmar opponent concedes a point.

I am completely unfazed by the reflections, Ayush.

You have captured some key details of game skills...like position, racquet grip, early preparation, eye on the ball...
This is a terrific shot, Ayush! You did very well... and I love the expression caught on the Indonesian!
Excellent action shot Ayush!

He couldn't look more alert, Ayush
YAY for ORANGE is all I can say!!! grin
He looks beaten!
Very good action shot Ayush, not much you can do about the reflections.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Brian.
Some photographers go around with a lens skirt (a soft box, made of fabric, into which they thrust in the camera) and position very close to the glass. That helps. A "proper" lens skirt costs a decent amount and I could not be bothered to DIY one myself, so I paid the price with some reflections.

Okay, I will confess. I used to play this game, until one day my brother's wife beat me, when she was 6 months pregnant.

Two things in my defence:

1) I was brought up not to bully women and be kind and caring when they are pregnant.

2) This reason is more important - she was also one of my country's top 5 females at the time.

When we were somewhere into the second game of the second set and she was running me ragged. As considerate in-law she enquired whether we should continue, I don't look so good. That was when I firmed up and took that game.

Afterwards I had a deep think about what happened and decided to start playing pinball.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for sharing that anecdote, Louis. It was very well written; getting better with each sentence. Of course, it is put into perspective when you mentioned the background of your SIL.
Well, the loss in the world of squash was made up by the gain in the world of pinball, Louis!
The chap in blue is looking weary Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Better than me, Chad. Had I played this sport, I would be looking very dead!

LOL at Louis, smile......
Ayush Basu: He does have several colourful experiences, doesn't he? grin
wow... lessons learnt here Ayush
Ayush Basu: I hope so, Ronky, for my own sake since I will be shooting this sport again later.
