Next Best Thing to the NBA

Posted by
Scott F. Schilling (San Martin, United States) on 18 May 2009 in Sport & Recreation.

my son Kyle plays in a kindergarten through 2nd grade basketball league. I was able to take some photographs of his game this last Saturday. It's not the NBA but definitely the next best thing! This is Kyle going up for a shot. I will post a few photos of his game the next couple of days.

I will be traveling this month to some of my favorite photography locations around the west and if I do not respond it just means I don't have good internet access. Thank you for your comments and i will comment once I get back in internet range.

Scott, great stuff. I have a feeling Kyle is going to have a lot of great memories.

Hey Scott, your son will appreciate your efforts to capture him more and more as the years go by. There are too many times (much to my regret) that I didn't take a camera along to capture my boys various sports and those times simply will not come back. Keep up the effort - you will never regret it.

Have fun on your travels.

Both of my children play basketball. These are some of the toughest of all pictures to ever take. The lighting is always different depending on which gym you play. Then you throw in the action and movement.

You caught a great shot of this one.

I remember soccer at that age - watching my girls. I can imagine that basketball ranks right up there. Baseball/softball at that age - terminal! Love this shot. The definitely don't know its any different than the NBA>

Nice one! But I think your title is a bit wrong - this is better than the NBA!

Splendid timing. I like very much the stopped movement and the balloon and the two boys in the air. Good one.

I don't know anything about basketball technique, but he sure looks like he's got the right form! Well done (to both of you)!
