Spiked

Being so busy lately means that there’s no shortage of material for me to put up here. The flip side is that it’s hard to time to post anything in a timely manner.

For example, here’s a few images from last week’s MIAA boys state volleyball playoffs, pitting neighboring rivals Newton South against Needham.

5.27.2010 — NEWTON, Mass. — Newton South's Brooks Remy (20) tries to block a spike from Needham's Ross Burdett in the South Sectional Semi-Finals on May 27, 2010. Newton South won, 3-2.

Hands Up

For the record, I have never claimed to be good at photographing volleyball!

More Volleyball

I had the pleasure of getting to photograph the MIAA Division II state volleyball championships for the Boston Herald at my alma mater yesterday. I was pleasantly surprised — Algonquin Regional High School turned out to be easily the most photo-friendly high school venue I’ve ever been to. Thanks to all the new construction that happened after I graduated, the gym is now a brightly lit palace with windows all around and nice clean backgrounds throughout.

But that’s hardly important, because the real action happened on the volleyball court between Bourne and Medfield. Thanks to the decent light (at least while the sun was up), I got plenty of great action as Medfield dominated on their way to a 3-0 win for their second straight DII championship.
