PEOPLE AND PLACES: Postseason in pictures

-A A +A
By Peter W. Zubaty, Sports Editor

I take a lot of photos — usually 150 or so per shoot/game.


When you expand that out over the course of a season, it really adds up in a hurry, as I’m currently finding out as I rapidly fill the hard drive of my new laptop.

It forces me to be a hard critic of myself. I hold myself to a pretty high standard as far as how this section looks to the readers from one issue to the next, and it all starts with quality photos. It’s always the first thing the reader’s eye is drawn to when they pick up a newspaper.

Because of this, only the best of the best of the best from my shoots make the final cut, and limited print space means not all of them make it. Some are saved for our website, others just fall through the cracks. It’s not that they weren’t good enough; something else just did a better job of telling the story.

On this page, I’m going to share a few from the recent volleyball and soccer postseasons that didn’t make the cut. More will be available online on a slideshow at kystandard.com, so feel free to check those out.

Think of this as a last glance look at the fall sports season as we prepare to turn the page into winter.
