It is tricky to shoot the front line on their side, but not impossible. You just have to find the windows as they open up, which usually starts with the set coming from behind the 10-foot line.

These are all shot at 85mm on a 1.3x crop, which is basically equivalent to 70mm on a 1.6x crop.

To be honest, I like shooting right behind the ref. Your problem is that you sitting on one side of the net and trying to shoot the same side's front line. What you want to do is go on the opposite side and shoot through or under the net. To shoot the back line, stay on their side of the net. Does that make any sense?

To be honest, shooting across the court is a much better perspective IMO. Ideally you want the ball and a face in the picture. Its hard to do that if you are shooting on the same side of the net.

I was sitting just on the other side of the net, at the opponents front line. 135L on crop:

I just don't seem to get it right when I shoot through the net.

That's because you're focused on the score table. Shoot with the 70-200 and it won't even see the net.
