2016 Sports Shooter Academy Day 2 / by Brian Rothmuller

After a long first day, that resulted in over 8 hours of shooting, it was on to day 2 at the Sports Shooter Academy 13 in Costa Mesa, CA. On day two, first up was shooting junior college water polo at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, CA. I've never shot water polo before, but found it to be a great sport to shoot with lots of different angles (including shooting off a platform diving board). There was some challenges with focus points with the swimmers going under water at times and exposures, but all in all was a lot of fun.

From there we went to shoot college softball and baseball at Cal State Fullerton. Being a little drained at this point, I focused on slowing things down and trying to work the scene and get some nice detail shots.

These are the three photos I submitted on Day 2.
