My very first time watching pro volleyball live. So much better than watching on TV. It's very fun and exciting! Man, those guys are TALL and BUFF! Didn't check out any of the women's games though since it got too hot.
Things I learned:
One of the players, Sean Rosenthal has his entourage "Rosie's Raiders" cheering for him, we were guessing that they were fueled by beer. :P
Jake Gibb's nickname is the Big Nasty.
I liked Kevin Wong b/c he's a Bruin. =)
Jeff Nygaard has to play with a shirt on b/c he got skin cancer last year.
The first shot is my favorite. What's yours?

*edit* This is Jer's bff Rosie:

It looks really fun to go watch. I've never been to one myself but it looks like you can get fairly close to the court :) Definitely would be a good experience in sports photography! I think what you could have also done was to try to get expressions of their face, like when they are anticipating a hit or before their partner returns the ball. I think that would be cool to see =D

I'm going to have to say I like image #1 as well.

If you get a chance to do this again, try using your biggest aperture setting (f/2.8) instead of f/11 and see what kind of results you get. You should be able to capture motion a little better.

yeah, good idea. i was playing around with different settings all throughout the tournament and wanted to find a good shutter speed balance between sharpness and having a little bit of motion blur. i could have easily frozen them at f2.8 and 1/8000 but i don't like the way it looks as much.
