So as my school's designated (and the only able) sports photographer, I went to my school's volleyball game today (we won ). There I met a fellow photographer who worked for a local newspaper. Although I had much less experience and knowledge than her, it became apparent that there was one equal ground between us: we both think volleyball is a pain in the butt to shoot. I tried many angles, such as across the court from the opposing side (camera then can't tell difference between face and net ), from the corners (which gets pictures of people's butts half the time), from the net (all the pictures then look the same), from the bleachers (which is awkward), etc. and none of the angles look good. Not to mention the fact that it's indoors in a somewhat poorly-lit, cramped gym. Me being on a crop-sensored camera, I often miss the shot I want because my tele lens doesn't go wide enough. Does anyone have any tips on shooting volleyball games?
