Squash photography


Recommended Posts

<p>I hope you have a glass backed court, I've shot down onto squash, but it's just the top of people's heads.<br>

Are the people you'll be shooting in a competition or just a friendly game? If it's a competition, try avoiding a flash.</p>

<p>Hello Robert, for a glass backed court, I would be inclined to try working from the backhand corner to the forehand corner to cover as many shots as possible, concentrating on what's in front of you. I think shots of people picking the ball off the back wall look pretty good.</p>

<p>I hope you will share what you get.</p>

<p>Best of luck.</p>

<p>I found this website with very low prices do you guys have any experience with this site?<br>

I think the first link , the lens, are very good for indoor low light squash photography, focal length is enough i think. The prices are amazing, is this a reliable website?<br>

<p>Bring Windex! Every court I've played in has had glass walls that won't do any lens any favors. <br>

I've never shot squash, but as a player, I'd recommend shooting from the far left side of the rear of the court (assuming right handed players). Competitive squash will have repeated rallies with the ball being backhanded, and in doing so, the player's shoulders will be turned momentarily, allowing a better fiew of the face. (reverse if left handed).<br>

Also, I'd go for emotion shots--especially right after the play.<br>

To be honest, I think it would be one of the hardest sports to photograph well on a traditional court since, by default, the players never look backwards!<br>

Hope this helps!</p>

<p>Greetings. Bubba. You are so right. I will be taking pictures of squash matches at a local high school. I am very familiar with the game and will be taking outside of the court, thru the glass with only the backside available. So, maybe a face or two. <br>

I have a canon 7D and the lens I thought I would try first would be the 24-105mm f/4L and also try my 70-200mm f2.8L IS. I am seeking assistance with settings. Suggestions?<br>

I hope to capture the game from the front with a remote in the camera box. (once I purchase a remote) Many thanks. </p>
