2011 USAU College Championships: Random set

December 12, 2011 in Photography, Sports, Ulitmate

I was in Monterey this past weekend getting my open water scuba certification so wasn’t able to work much on the photos from the third day of the 2011 USAU College Championships. Ultimate photos aren’t all about skying, scoring, and getting layout D’s. Here are a couple photos of the catch attempts that didn’t quite make it, endzone celebrations, and conflict resolution.

More photos coming soon.

There aren’t many good photos of people spiking the disc. A freeze frame of the action usually just looks awkward…

Talk it out. The unique thing about ultimate is the way disputes are handles. It has its pro and cons, but is definitely a pain when you are shooting ultimate because it completely stops play.
