Below are some of my favorite photos taken at various sporting events at UNC Chapel Hill. For a couple of years I dived into sports photography to try something new and learn a new skill. It’s definitely much trickier than landscapes or portraits (you can’t tell the athletes to stop running and pose!), but it provides a unique challenge of capturing images that are interesting, clear, focused, and tell a story, all while in a fast paced environment. Being able to sit courtside (well, on the court floor) at UNC basketball games was also an incredible opportunity, though I did almost get smashed by a stray basketball or player a few times.
