Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition @ a Basketball Game

FB P DSC_0865Sometimes while photographing a sports game, I will get a little sidetracked and photograph something other than the game!  I usually try to make it something challenging like a juxtaposition which is “the act of placing things side by side, especially for the purpose of comparison or contrast.”

One way I have found to capture a juxtaposition during a basketball game (actually during warm ups) is to capture the basketball as it comes thru the hoop and net.  For me it is more of a comparison of technique, focus, position and timing.  The shear timing alone can be extremely tricky but always such a delight when I capture that perfect moment in time!
