big dreams

I liked this quiet moment before tipoff as Derrick Rose sat on the bench, the last to be introduced during player introductions. NBA teams darken the arena and use spotlights for their home players, and with all the light swinging around you notice highlights hitting the guys off to the side for a split-second occasionally.

I just kept the camera on the ground pointed at Derrick and waited for a burst of light to catch him; the darkness around him made a rare clean image as he got himself ready to play.
