Ryu didn’t have a best shoot, but struggled with basketball. Matt spent the month on the road, shooting rodeos, no bad news there.
Ryu and Matt talk about shooting sports with wide angle lenses, most notably the Nikon 24mm f/1.4 vs the Nikon 14-24mm f2.8.

Our April 2013 themed competition was “Parts + Detail.”
The winner was Bashar Alshabi with this wonderful track & field picture:
Second place was a mixed martial arts picture by Kris10Pix, and third place was this baseball picture by Ben C.K..
The May 2013 themed competition is “Wide Angle”. Goto our BLFS flickr group page for competition rules and to enter.
Our new segment where we say good things about sports photographs is called Cross-Counter. This episode we picked a couple of pictures from the (mostly awful) Sports Illustrated 100 Greatest Sports Photos of All Time list. Ryu’s pick / Matt’s pick
Special thanks to…
