ABA - Basketball - Chicago Fury vs Midwest Flames scrimmage

Two weeks ago I had an opportunity to shoot a preseason game for the Midwest Flames (a semi pro ABA basketball team). The Flames played the Chicago Fury at the Woodruff Career and Technical Center gym in Peoria, IL. This was the first time I shot a game with two cameras. I used my Canon 7D with a Canon 17-55mm f 2.8 lens for under the basket and my Canon T1i with 70-200mm f 2.8 lens for down the court. The action of this game was fast, and for the first quarter I was struggling to keep up with the action. The Fury had the full court press on the Flames in the first quarter and there was a lot of turn overs in the back court and half court. At the start of the second quarter I decided to switch cameras and shoot once the ball was pass half court, and this made things a bit easier. The Flames did not win this game, but I am sure this game has taught them that they have a lot of work to do to get better. Also, this game has taught me that I need to do the same. Below are some of the shots from the game against the Fury. To learn more about the Midwest Flames click here >> Midwest Flames
