More sports pictures
If you’ve followed Alternate Crop at all, you’re aware that a healthy portion of our assignments are from sports events. We’re always looking for sports action pictures during these assignments, but getting storytelling images doesn’t stop just because we’re at a game or a match. A player’s reactions in those moments after a game can be even more important than a photo of him driving the lane.
Bryan Terry photographed the state high school wrestling championships last weekend. The pictures that stand out are the ones taken in the moment that the wrestlers become state champions. You can see the hours of training and the intensity of the tournament in Garrison McCualey’s face and body language as he celebrates his win. Meanwhile, Pau Gasol and Kobe Bryant celebrate an exciting and exhausting win over the Thunder. OU’s Carlee Roethlisberger comforts teammate Danielle Robinson after Robinson’s last second shot doesn’t fall and the Sooners lose to the Baylor Bears. In all these cases, whether the pictures were used in the newspaper or not, it’s the players’ reactions to the game that tells the story.
