Today, I left for Ponca City to cover both the junior varsity and the varsity basketball teams of our high school. I don’t normally cover JV, especially on the road, but because the regular season is coming to a close, I left earlier to make to the JV game.
These longer trips make it later nights, and it’s not fun trying to find a WiFi spot so I can send my assignments into the office to be proofread for tomorrow’s paper. That’s why I don’t really enjoy Thursday night high school games on the road. Or any night that we go to press. It’s kind of a rush and a bit hectic.
We usually have them on Friday’s, but for whatever reason, Ponca City made a schedule change for Thursday.
Anyways, I took several pictures form the first half of both the girls’ and boys’ game while taking stats of the game on Game Changer. Once the games ended, I was able to upload the photos to Lightroom where I do most of my editing before captioning the photos and changing them to CMYK in Photoshop.
Once I finished that, I uploaded my photos to Dropbox, before writing my articles to turn in to Dropbox as well.
Now for the long trip home.
