Any tennis fans out there? I rode over to Cincinnati with some friends to watch the Western & Southern Open tennis tournament earlier this week. In the late 1980s I covered this event as a photojournalist for one of the local Cincinnati newspapers where I was a staffer, but I hadn’t been back since then. I was busy with some commercial / industrial photo jobs just prior to this event, so I wasn’t in the mood to carry any heavy full-frame gear. I settled on a single Olympus EPL-1, VF-3, and the two inexpensive kit zooms - the 14-42mm and the 40-150mm. It all fit in a small bag. The photos were difficult to color balance as the players alternate between standing on bright blue or bright green surfaces, and the sun was popping in and out with some artificial court lighting thrown in for free. My timing isn’t what it used to be, but here are some of the resulting pictures, from both early morning practices and some matches later in the day. If you are a tennis fan, you’ll recognize most of the players…. starting out with Ana Ivonovic, who beat Maria Sharapova tonight in the semi-finals.
