How to shoot Squash (or not) - 4

Lesson four: the noise.

 

I ended up with a loooot of shots with detectable noise, dodgy focus and out of frame composition. 

 

In this women's match, the Indonesian player (also orange) gets the better of her Burmese opponent.

It must be difficult to shoot such a fast paced sport.
Ayush Basu: It was tough but on post mortem, I think I could have done some things slightly better, Michael
it must be really really nice to have a strong healthy body in this day and age *envy*
Ayush Basu: I am right there with you on the envy part, Elaine!grin

smile There is nothing wrong with a little 'enthusiasm' while playing and remember: women are very competitive.
You did a great job with capturing this series, all behind glass (better for your health also, I think wink)
Ayush Basu: My health, hmm, ok... but camera health, you're bang on right about that, Astrid grin I do believe woman can be very competitive and in my opinion, tend to be more focused than men. In the coming days, I will have the opportunity to shoot some tennis which will make its way on to SC at some point.

Actually, Ayush, the noise dos not bother me at all.

Furthermore, I am really taken by this composition with the Burmese gal falling out of the bottom of the frame.
Ayush Basu: I agree, Ray. The Burmese gal did not win the game but she fought hard for each point.
I would have crashed headlong into the glass long time ago and been decommissioned for perhaps 6 weeks grin
I think you did well, Ayush - I'm not sure the noise could be avoided- but what's going on is quite clear!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Elizabeth. In the end it boiled down to a choice between blurry, clean image or a noisy, (reasonably) sharp image.
I agree with what everyone else has said, Ayush. You've done a bang-up job, noise or no noise. I have a feeling those ladies were making their own noise, too!
Ayush Basu: You are very kind Ginnie, and you're right! As Astrid mentioned earlier, women can be competitive and their grunts were a very vocal emphasis
I quite enjoyed the noise of the ball hitting the walls when playing Ayush! I quite enjoy your series.
Ayush Basu: I think the sound of the ball helps because I mostly cannot see it, Richard grin

It's war down there!
Ayush Basu: I had a similar word in mind, Chris: carnage!

I am amazed that you can get any pictures of a game like this, Ayush. Well done!
Ayush Basu: I am amazed people want to put themselves through it, Lisl tongue
The orange lady does have an air of sucess about her Ayush.
Ayush Basu: She wanted to wrap things up and go back to her social media, Chad.
Still playing squash?
Ayush Basu: Not for long smile
The lady in black..That's how I always ended up...smile
Ayush Basu: I am quite happy as long as I don't end up in a stretcher, Frank tongue
Quite a challenging subject Ayush. Nice series
Ayush Basu: You can say that againJanet. Thank you. I will shooting some more action in the coming months so I hope this experience made me wiser.

She is scrambling after the ball like I did against my sister-in-law.
Ayush Basu: More likely she's cursing the photographer right outsde the court who distracted her with his pesky ways, Louis grin Well I hope not!
It is a very fast game and you have done a good job Ayush
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Bill
Fine action shot, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Tom

There are certain situations where I have this problem and I still haven't mastered the technique to get a perfect photo.
Ayush Basu: There is always a learning curve when trying out things, isn't it, CP. Thank you for the message
