Chester Lady Flyers vs ORR Lady Raiders Girls Basketball – Districts

Chester and ORR faced off last night in the District Championship Game at the Swiftel Center in Brookings last night. We have lots of intense expressions in some of the images below. I was impressed that the Lady Flyers all stayed on the floor and clapped as the ORR girls received their District Championship medals and trophy. That was a great example of sportsmanship that is too often lost in the heat of competition.

The Lady Raiders are one game away from going to the State B Tournament in Huron. They play Estelline later this week for the Region title.

St Thomas More vs Chester: State A Boys Basketball – Rapid City Sports Photography

The Chester Flyers almost pulled out a win over the Cavaliers during the opening round of the South Dakota State A Boys Basketball Tournament in Rapid City. Chester lead for most of the game until St. Thomas More adjusted their style of play. A few missed shots by Chester and the Cavaliers took the game.

Here are a few images from the opening round game on Thursday night. Check out the sometimes intense facial expressions that Dacey and I captured.

Madison Bulldogs vs Chester Flyers: Boys Basketball – South Dakota Sports Photography

The Madison Bulldogs pulled out a victory over the Chester Flyers last night in an Entringer Classic make up game. Colman’s very nice gym (great lighting) was full of fans on both sides.

I get asked all the time “What camera should I buy so I can take my own pictures of my kids playing basketball?”

My answer: “How much money do you want to spend?”

People assume that everything is easy because they see me with the nice camera and big lens. They see the cool pictures in the paper, but they don’t see the what I do when I get home. It takes 3 to 4 hours of computer processing time per game with expensive software on a very fast computer to get great images. It’s not as easy as you first might think.

My suggestion is for you to pay attention and enjoy the games and let whatever pro or newspaper is covering your event supply your pictures of your son or daughter. All you have to do is ask.

Chester vs Emery-Ethan FB Playoffs – South Dakota Sports Photography

After the Canistota FB game ended in the third quarter, Rachel and I headed to Emery to catch the second half of the Chester and Emery-Ethan game. Things looked pretty good for Chester at the start of the third quarter. The Flyers stopped Emery-Ethan in their tracks with a densive stand. They were ahead by 4 points. A bad snap sent the football into the endzone for a safety and cut Chester’s lead to 2 points. The safety switched momentum to Emery-Ethan.

Here are a few images from the game.

Keenan’s video slideshow – Chester South Dakota Senior Pictures

I’ve watched Keenan play football. This wide receiver can get the job done whether he’s going out for a pass or blocking down field during a running play. Keenan loves basketball too. He’s not going to have much of a break this year between sports. Chester has played tough this football season, only losing two games.

Here are Keenan’s favorites from his senior session along with a few action shots in a video slideshow.

Playoffs: Chester vs Howard Football – South Dakota Sports Photography

It was COLD last night at Chester’s football field for their game against Howard. After one half, the feeling had left my fingers. Here are a couple from the game.

Andrew: Chester South Dakota Sports Photography

Andrew came for his sales session tonight to look at his senior pictures. Before he left the studio with his family, I showed off some of the football pictures taken at two of Chester’s games. I always want to see the height of action: the ball at the end of the fingertips, eyes open and a determined expression. Here is one from the Canistota game. Andrew is number 33.

Prairie Bowl: Chester vs Howard – South Dakota Sports Photography

I left for Sioux Falls at 3:00 on Friday afternoon. Howard and Chester were playing each other in the Prairie Bowl at Howard Wood Field. The game of these two rivals lived up to the hype.

We’ve photographed seniors on both teams. It was fun to see them in action and tough to decide who to cheer for. Here are a few from Friday night’s game.
