Ok, had a moment during lunch break and there was that tennis match going on, I tried to shoot a little. They seemed to lose focus as they noticed me shooting so I didn't insist and quickly stopped :p

Tennis is one of the sports I´d love to photograph, but I think I would shoot way tighter most of the time. Good whole-figure shots.

I shoot a lot of tennis, including some paid events, and play as well. Yes, tight shots are typically most interesting but the serve is an exception. Those are most often full body shots as otherwise you are cutting off to much (feet, racket, ball). It's not to say you cannot go tight at times, but if you want to depict the serve, then showing the ball racket, leg kick, etc is necessary. It's really better to go tight (extreme) with ground strokes because you can get some nice eye contact.

You really want a mixture of tight shots and full body shots.

Take care,
Ralph

P.S. Nice job OP

Thanks for you inputs guys ;) I couldn't really shoot anything but serve (and shoot tight) since those two could hardly rally at all :o

I'll give it another try soon...
