Springboard diver Tricia Woo broke a ten year old highschool diving record in the 2005 season. (My old diving record in 1995. Ten years later I had an honor being the coach of the person to break it. I am very proud of her.)
Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Nikor 18-70mm
I had the honor of coaching this girl because she had so much talent that transfered over from gymnastics. She was able to perform on the first day of practice, a lot of twists and sommersaults that the average beginner diver wouldn't be able to do with a whole year or two of practice.
This picture has multiple purposes. It was taken for a local newspaper for their Spring Sports Preview section, for her to examine and critique her diving form and for my portfolio. Taking pictures like this was the main purpose of my interest in learning photography, to take pictures of the athletes on our team.
