Yesterday I went to Princeton, New Jersey and watched/photographed a couple Ultimate Frisbee games. There was a tournament going on and teams from many colleges were playing. Princeton, Rowan, Ramapo, Rutgers, Temple, Hofstra and others. I went knowing that I’d be standing the entire time and that the players would be all over the place, and at great distances. With that, I grabbed my 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 VR lens. Usually for sports I’d use my 70-200 f/2.8 VR II lens, but for this event I know it wouldn’t work for what I needed.

For this weeks Project 52 I decided to share these two photos because they really explain how difficult Ultimate Frisbee is.  Pictures can create an amazing story.

Thanks for reading and happy shooting,

Scott

  1. Nice shots! Do you play Ultimate? I have tried shooting some ultimate games, without a lot of luck; and being as an ultimate player myself, I find I watch the game with a players eye and not a photographers eye. I should try it again because there are some great opportunities for action shots, like the ones you captured here.

    1. Hi WIll,

      I’ve watched many games, but never played. I’m great at catching a frisbee but not so good at throwing one.
