Emotional Hoops

"Kendrick Perkins #5 of the Oklahoma City Thunder reacts to a call against the Washington Wizards in the second half at Verizon Center on January 21, 2015 in Washington, DC."

Like a professional of anything business, athletes days aren't always how they invivsion them.

Some days on the court or field they're perfect - other days - they're a struggle.

Even when they're having an amazing day statistically, a simple foul could shift momentum of the game to give the other team an advantage.

I continually strive to find more and more of these emotional aspects of the games being played in front of my lens. They're storytelling and important to night's game.

During an Oklahoma City Thunder versus Washington Wizards game recently, a small infraction against Kendrick Perkins of the Thunder had him questioning something inside his head during a very tight, exciting game.

In the end, this image would be meaningless to the overall outcome, as the Thunder came out victorious in overtime. But at the time, for a brief second, this meant everything visually.
