My son plays High School Basketball. He works so hard and my wife and I love to go watch him play.
Besides cheering for my son and his teammates and yelling at the referees, I have a dilemma. What do I shoot — Video or stills.
I don’t have an outlet for my images. I have submitted to the local newspaper, but they actually sell their images, so they only accept images from their staff photographers. So I am shooting for my families memories. The question is which is more appealing — video or still shots?
For the last couple of years, I have shot mostly stills. However, this year, I am shooting mostly video. It is a very different medium for me. There are different things to worry about. Panning, zooming, trying not to jerk the camera around when a sudden change of action happens, do I follow the ball or follow my son? These are all skills that I am working to master.
How about everyone else. Video or stills?
Let me know what you think.
