Western & Southern Open


The Western & Southern Open is being held August 9 – 17, 2014, here in Cincinnati, Ohio and I was on assignment today.  It was my first experience taking tennis photographs and I wasn’t sure what to expect.  It’s been a long day.  I began by leaving my home at 7:30am and returned after noon.  The remainder of the day (until 8:30pm) I’ve spent editing photos.  I think I did fairly well for my first time.

After researching the players, I decided to photograph the match between Ben Becker from Germany and Malek Jaziri from Tunisia

It doesn’t hurt that they’re both cute!

I also caught some action from the practice sessions.  Here’s Maria Sharapova from Russia…

It was quite difficult to get shots of her because of the chain link fence…
