US Open Photography: Around the Grounds

"Fans observe the grounds from the top of Louis Armstrong Stadium at the US Open Saturday, September 3, 2011."

"Birds fly above the lights of Arthur Ashe Stadium at the start of the night session at the US Open Saturday, September 3, 2011."

Here’s a few more “Around the Grounds” shots that I was assigned to. I’ve been really drawn to shadow and silhouettes so far, likely because I’m on call to shoot as the sun is setting.

If you’d like, you can check out my second and third galleries full of US Open scenery here and here.

US Open Photography: Thursday, September 1, 2011

"Fans watch as Gael Monfils (FRA)(7) plays Juan Carlos Ferrero (ESP) in Louis Armstrong Stadium at the 2011 US Open Thursday, September 1, 2011."

"Roger Federer (SUI)(3) fans celebrate outside Arthur Ashe Stadium at the 2011 US Open Thursday, September 1, 2011."

Although I’m an editor, I’ve been assigned to shoot several galleries for usopen.org as well. These are usually “Around the Grounds” themed galleries, which give viewers something else to look at besides the players.

Here are a few from my first gallery, which is the one I’m most proud of so far. It’s organized as a walking tour of the grounds, beginning at the entrance and progressing to the tennis action on court. You can check out the full gallery here!
