Catwalk camera equals awesome dunk photos

One of the main reasons I like to utilize remote cameras when shooting basketball, other than getting a different angle, is to ensure I have a photo of a play. From the floor, where we typically shoot, the action is often obscured by other players, flailing arms and all too often the ass of a referee who parks himself right in front of me. That was the case with both of these dunks by Anthony Bennett in one of his last games as a Rebel during the Mountain West Conference Tournament. I was able to capture the photos by using a camera I had hung in the catwalk a couple days earlier. Eight more months and I get to do it all again.
