Took my son to watch his first basketball game last Saturday and to try getting some sports photography practice leading up to the Sports Shooter Academy in March where one sport we will be covering is basketball. The below images are what I managed from the stand of an afternoon basketball game between California Lutheran University and Occidental College on Saturday, January 11, 2020 in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Final score was 77 to 54 with Occidental College taking the win. All shots taken from the stands with Nikon D500 and Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 (no VR) at a higher ISO than I am used to shooting with. But I think this camera does fairly well under the terrible gym lights with the lens aperture wide open.
