This past Monday I photographed the Malone Scholarship Golf Classic as a community service project for the Cleveland Photographic Society . When I shoot most sporting events, I almost always try to capture moments of impact between bats and balls, rackets and balls, and in this case golf clubs and balls. You get the idea. It helps to have a camera with a high continuous shooting rate but it also requires some skill to know when to press the shutter button and maybe most of all, a great deal of luck!
In this first shot I was milliseconds late with the club past the tee and the ball about a foot and a half into it’s flight. I was pretty happy with it though, at least the ball was still in the image!
This second shot was much closer though! The club is still hitting the tee and the ball is only an inch or so into it’s flight! I was really happy to see this one! I’ll probably never get this close again!
