VCU Basketball with the Pentax K-5 IIs
Lens: DA 55-300 and DA*60-250 Camera: Pentax K-5 IIs Photo Location: Richmond, Virginia

So, given the time of year it is, I've been focusing much of my attention on college basketball, namely my alma mater, Virginia Commonwealth University. I've done this before, but this season is a little different as I have season tickets, pretty good seats, and a better lens (the DA 55-300). I've been shooting photos of every single game - in fact, I've attended every single game - and the other fans love them so much they've been picked up in local news articles and I'm even an official content provider for the VCU Rowdy Rams (the official student fan group). I'm hoping to be able to get some courtside media credentials at some point this season. Here's a sampling of the work I've done so far this season; I'll likely put more in my gallery as the season goes on.

It's not perfect, but remember, I'm shooting from the seats! :P

Impressive shots, look nice and sharp with no bothersome noise, and you got some nice action shots. Good job

Haha, indeed. I've gotten my share of weird shots, too, such as this one:

I seem to have a penchant for this sort of thing. :P
