I’m in New Haven, Connecticut for the next week photographing the Connecticut Open tennis tournament at Yale University for the second year in a row. I’ll be shooting a healthy mix of action and events around the grounds, and I’ll be sure to post regularly throughout the week. 

Here are a few basic frames from yesterday. I had over 20 matches to shoot on a busy day one, so these are as straightforward as it gets. Forehands and backhands.

It was kind of a lack-luster day for photos on-court yesterday. It was mostly the standard forehands and backhands. Hoping for more excitement today!
