Most Eagle photographers edit their own images. That means that we decide which pictures to hand into our editor and then he and the page designers decide which ones will be on the page. Some of the things we look for are: composition, lighting, and of course, the moment.
On Wednesday I photographed Bishop Carroll in the Girls 5A state basketball quarterfinal game held in Topeka. During one scramble on the floor I shot a burst of 26 frames in 4 seconds with my trusty Canon Mark II camera. I edited the images while sitting court-side and sent my selections back to Wichita.
Above is a video of all 26 images and below are my top four. I chose the first one. Which one would you choose out of the series of four below? On a side note, the page designer and our editor chose an entirely different picture to put in print.
