Basketball: Boston University vs. Lehigh University / by Alexandra Wimley

Until recently, I wasn't a huge fan of shooting sports. I had gotten into a habit of focusing only on Boston University players, and only the action on the court, field or ice, because that was usually what was needed for The Daily Free Press, but now I am shooting sports for features, and therefor I am only on the hunt for stories; action doesn't mean much if there is no story behind it. I shot a great basketball game on Sunday that sparked a renewed interest in sports photography. It was an intense back-and-forth match with significant student support, which is unusual at a school like BU. It was a thrill to try to capture the tangible tension of the game and the excitement of winning.
