Volleyball can be a challenging sport to photograph. The plays are quick. Tracking action through the net can cause problems for the camera’s autofocus system. And sometimes all the action looks the same.
I was lucky this year. The main volleyball teams I covered had really emotive players. While I got decent action, the reaction really made this season.
Here are some of the photos that really stood out this year.
And of course, a few action photos from the season.
