I love the sense of anticipation and when I know the sport like tennis, there is a heightened of the decisive moment. The studies of Djokovic on the clay courts are taken from court-side and the press room in Monaco. I did NOT use a motor drive; preferring the challenge of assessing which moment, what split second of the action I could judge and shoot correctly. The light of the Cote d’Azur worked in my favour with the stunning shadows complementing the body shapes and those sporty seconds! Note his crown; a truly lucky gift demostrating Cartier Bresson’s ‘harmony’.
Nikon D300 and also a mid range zoom all digital on the fast Sandisk CF card. Tripod then, monopod now, hand help for the top view.
