I love taking netball pics. It feels great to capture the exact moment a GS goes up for a high feed on full stretch, or a WD manages to keep the ball on court against all the odds.
But what I like most is how much players enjoy seeing themselves in action. It’s easy to walk off the court after a tough game, dwelling on all the passes we fluffed up and all the shots we missed. Maybe you wish you could jump higher for rebounds, or nip out for centre passes with a bit more speed?
However, running around a concrete court for 60 minutes isn’t a walk in the park. Sometimes, you need to see it to believe how good you are. Yes, you can get pretty high off the ground. Yes, you were quick enough for that interception. And yes, you were at the top of the D giving an amazing pass into the circle.
The evidence is normally just a smartphone away!
What is the competition?
I’m launching a Netball Life photography competition. At the end of every month, I will pick a winner.
The winner will also get a prize. That might be a cool bit of kit, some tickets to an upcoming game (depending on where you live!) or a bit of Netball Life merchandise (coming soon!).
How do I enter?
It’s really easy.
Take pictures of netball. Upload as many as you want, and tag #NetballLifeShots so I can see your amazing work!
On the last day of the month, I’ll select my favourite and post it on my own feed. Then prizes will follow…
Not really! Just try and capture the exact moment of action. Jumping, running, interceptions will be the most interesting shots you can take.
It’s a lot easier to do this with the ‘live’ function available on most phones, which takes multiple images at once. Then you’re not relying on pressing down on the capture button at exactly the right moment (and then cursing when you miss it by a nano-second!).
I can’t wait to see what you send in – let’s spread the netball love!
