Both sides of the lens

i-411a1b91a636e22d38104a172906ccc4-20061117_lbsu3.jpg Shooting at the Pyramid is always fun – especially becuase it’s one of the brightest college venues in Southern California. Because of the shape of the building, a pyramid of course, the lights are basically on the walls. This makes the players side lit and eliminates shadows found in most other gyms that have lights in the ceilings. — But enough of the technical stuff.

The fun stuff is taking pictures from two places at the same time. If you look at tomorrow’s (Saturday, Nov. 18) Press-Telegram sports section you may notice that the two action pictures from this game are from different angles. One from up top and one from the floor.

To be in ‘two places at once’ I used a remote camera (see arrow in the top image and the close-up to the left).

The remote camera took a picture every time I pressed the shutter button on the camera in my hand. The picture on the left was taken by the remote camera – the arrow is pointing to me.

The result is the picture on the left, which was taken by the remote camera while I was on the other side of the court.

    Jeff,
    Found you on SportsShooter and recognized you from a few CSULB games. Thanks for the tip on the remote camera from side railing. Looks like a much safer shot than the backboard cam. I’m definitely going to bite this idea :)
