Here’s a selection of images from a jam packed Day 4 at the 2012 US Open. On the tennis side, I tried to mix up the way I shot my action photos yesterday. I love shooting tennis because there are so many ways to attack it, and I want to make sure I do just that while I’m here. I shot lots from high above, which I really enjoyed and plan to do a lot more as the tournament goes on.
Off the court, it was a bit of a whirlwind day. I was assigned to follow RedFoo from LMFAO as he walked around the grounds, which was entertaining. Here is a link to a gallery with some more of my photos of him. I also shot Andy Roddick’s press conference in which he announced his intention to retire from tennis after this year’s US Open. Here is the video from that presser.
And, finally, here is a link to the rest of our photo galleries from Day 4.
Here is a selection of images from Day 3 of the 2012 US Open. Things are starting to heat up, and emotions were running high on many of the courts yesterday. I caught the tail end of a few very intense matches, including a couple five set battles.
It was nice to get some good expression out of the players. Screams, fist pumps, and racquet throws serve as a nice break from the normal forehand, backhand, and serve photos.
