Bring it In…

As I’ve mentioned over on my Google+ stream, I’ve been using my X100 quite a bit lately, even to shoot sporting events that my daughters are part of.  It’s been a lot of fun, I must admit, particularly since I’d previously photographed such games with a DSLR and much longer zoom lenses (usually 70-200 f/2.8).  Shooting with the X100 (35mm equivalent lens) really helps me to think about what it is I want to “say” with my photographs.  Case and point, today’s shot of my daughters’ team (dark jerseys) and the opposing team.  As soon as I saw them all gathered out there, and the referees in the “frame” of my minds eye as well, I made a bee-line out onto the court to capture that moment.  Like all the other shots during the 2-day tournament, I knew that post-processing this shot in black and white would help me to keep the attention on what was going on in the scene.
