    Lots of youngsters interested in it, it appears. That's good.

    I remember that about 8 years ago I was some silly teenager and I was posting on this forum somewhere, saying "I think that the more background blur the better" and someone else bashed me for that comment. Can't seem to find it anymore.

    Gave badminton photography a today for fun, at the SKYCITY New Zealand Open 2015 with a bit of a "documentary" style take on it.

    Let me know your thoughts

    We need to see the most photogenic of them all... Gronya Somerville...

    But having blurred background is nice... just a product of having the aperture wide open and the zoom maxed out...

    Jhirata, what settings are you using? How good is the light?

    And are these the only photos you are going to give us?

    It is always refreshing for me to see how other people approach badminton photography. Sometimes I get inspired and incorporate some of the techniques into my own.

    When I first started looking at photos here, I questioned whether angled, non-leveled, crops work! But my appreciation of angled shots changed to positive after seeing Anita's work. And now I use that in certain circumstances.

    And a maxed out aperture opening usually is a decision more related to the limited available lighting in the venue, in order to minimize noise and maximize clarity, and to obtain a higher keep rate. Background blur is sometimes a pleasant by-product!

    Cheung, the light is pretty good, I'm shooting at 1/1000 (Doesn't give me purple flickering stuff), ISO1000, f/1.8, 85mm (on D700 full frame).

    Here's a few more from the semi-finals day. I don't know if I can make it to the finals but I'll see...

    Some generic "big jump" "big fall" "big lunge" "ready to serve" kinda shots in here too, but I find them quite cliche. My preference is to capture the players' expressions in between the rallies: it makes me wonder how the players themselves must have felt/thought during that moment, and for me it's the best way to feel more immersed in the game

    What's everyone's preference?
