Qatar Total Open

posted on 2nd of march, 2012

Never thought of shooting editorial photos before this year! With my new gear I had more self confidence to attend some events & spend much time hiding half of my face behind the black see through box! This time was a day in Qatar Total Open for ladies tennis!
Yep it was totally different from my first experience with still objects in Qatar Motor Show 2nd Exhibition

Each day had 4 matches so I was happy to have a stuffed day of shooting, regardless the fact that I couldn't attend the whole event between the 13th & the 19th of February!

The first match was between Monica Niculescu from Romania & Samantha Stosur from Australia! The longest match of the day, which ended with the victory of Samantha Stosur...

The second match was faster & with lots of maneuvers! No wonder cause Victoria Azarenka was playing! Her opponent Yanina Wickmayer from Belgium wasn't that easy but yeah Victoria is her true name...

The third match was really a good show for tennis! Both of the players were fast & strong! Marion Bartoli & Lucie Safarova! By the end Marion had won the match!

The fourth match was the fastest! Polish player Agnieszka Radwanska winning her US opponent Christina McHale

It was a great & useful experience for shooting!
