I again returned to the tennis tour, (previously we were shooting a lot with Sergei tennis: all competitions in Russia, Grand Slam Cup, Davis Cup and Federation). Then switched to winter sports - was the Winter Olympics in Sochi, but now football - 2018 will be the FIFA World Cup. And I was pleased that remembered me and invited to the tennis "St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy" tournament (it is this year will be held in St. Petersburg). At this tournament I was the official photographer of the tournament.
Tennis shooting experience suggests that advertising and purple background on the sides of the court will interfere to make a good shot, though without frames with advertising was not enough (it is necessary for public relations of the tournament). I found a small section of the court without advertising, spread vases with flowers, sat very low and started taking pictures on the background of the audience, who were in the shade. And luck smiled at me: Roberta Vinci (Italy) very emotional reaction to an error in the reception of the ball. The result of such a frame, the camera Canon EOS-1D X and the lens EF24-70 f / 2.8L IS II USM. Although this set of the match was lost, she won the tournament!
For photographers accredited for the event, Canon launched CPS service center, where it was possible to repair and clean the professional photographic equipment. Also, you can try almost any camera and lens. There was even the EOS-1D X Mark II, which is not yet commercially available. As usual at such events is free.
Canon together with the organizers conducted a photo contest. Cards printed on the spot on your inkjet printer. It was nice that beat Dmitry Lovetsky (the AP), working with Canon equipment - with his photo Martina Hingis (Switzerland) and a cup tournament.
