Which Venues Are Good For Photography?
People in this forum have personally attended tournaments all over the world. I have only been to the southern California events plus Sarasota (once). I'm wondering which venues people think are good (and bad) for taking pictures of players. Good venues give spectators access to lots of courts, including practice courts. It's also good if you can stand on any side of a court instead of being restricted to one side. For example Indian Wells is great because it is wide open, i.e. all practice courts are open to the public and most can be viewed from all 4 sides. The Home Depot Center in Carson (Los Angeles) is also pretty good for similar reasons. These venues were both built for hosting pro events which really helps. Country Clubs tend to have fences with curtains and light poles around the courts. La Costa, where they hold the Acura, is a country club in which most of the practice courts are closed in by fences with curtains on them - not very good for photography.
In one of the reports from the Rogers Cup someone mentioned that he/she could not get near many of the practice courts. This would make it not so hot for picture-taking.
So, in your opinion, which venues are good and bad for photography.
