1.jpg Look, I'm on the floor with a press pass! Note how I I screw up a few shots in subtle ways.

3.jpg What's wrong with this shot? Um, there are five starters in basketball games. I'll get the composition correct next time!

8.jpg What's wrong with my "Hail Mary" shot? The focus was on the back players instead of all of them. I'll get this right the next time too.

15.jpg OSU has the most convincing acting of any team I've seen. Even when they were actual fouls (not in this case) they looked like flops.

55.jpg Hey, look! I'm shooting from the other side of the court. Since PSU gave me a press pass I figured I should get shots of their players.
