US Open Photography: Friday, September 2, 2011

"Andy Murray (GBR)(4) returns a shot from Robin Haase (NED) in a men's singles match in Louis Armstrong Stadium Friday, September 2, 2011."

"Sabine Lisicki (GER)(22) signs autographs in Grandstand at the US Open Friday, September 2, 2011."

I got on court for the first time last Friday to shoot some tennis action. The US Open crowd has some great energy, and I was pumped to be sitting courtside in the photo pits in these iconic tennis stadiums. 

I made the best pictures I could with my really slow 18-135 lens. It’s about time to upgrade to some new gear.
