Brennan Bear DeShawn Key (center) fights to control the ball while surrounded by Devin Kearns (L) and Frank Harris (R) of the Clemens Buffaloes . When covering basketball, my equipment consists of a 300mm f/2.8 and a 200mm f/2.0. The 300mm lens is for action at the far end of the court and the 200mm is for closer to the basket, though sometimes I will use the 300mm for an extreme closeup. My position is always the same – sitting on the floor at one end of the court. I like the view of looking up to the players, no matter what their stature is. Photos of the game can be purchased here.
