Week Four: Sports/Action – UNO Archery Club


So, the UNO Archery Club has been re-founded by my friend, Dyan. She was kind enough to let me drop by for their first instructor practice and group meetings this weekend. I thought archery would be a unique subject for this week’s sports action assignment. Dyan made me work for my photo by constantly blinking during her shots, but all in all, I had a great time getting my photo — especially with the arrow in flight! (Nikon D600, 24-70mm @ 45mm, f/2.8, 1/50s, ISO 320.)

If anyone is interested in Archery at UNO, the club could use all the support they can get. Dyan and her co-founder Sage have put a lot of work into getting the club back up and running. They’re both quite passionate about the club and I would love to see them enjoy the best success possible!

  1. That is incredible how you caught the arrow as it’s leaving the bow!! I love her steely look of determination. What could possibly make this photo better is a wider shot of the room and/or her stance. That would make the photo even more badass-looking. 🙂


    1. Thanks! My only concern with the wider view of her stance was the loss of detail in her expression and the added distractions of including the surroundings. As for the room, what you see is really all there was to it. The club is sadly sequestered down in the basement of HPER.
