Remotes... Because they ROCK!
What you'll need:
-- Camera with electronic cable release outlet and motor drive,
-- Lens of your choice for your needs,
-- Bogen Super Clamp (or Magic Arm) with mount plate (or tripod),
-- Radio slaves, or super long home made cable release,
We'll go to the last thing on the list first... Imagination. Think of something that would be really cool, or an angle that you think might work. There's an old addage amongst photojournalists to, "take the viewer where they can't normally go". Well, I modified that like everything else I come in contact with, and say "put the camera where you can't go".
Clamps and Magic Arms are highly versatile and go almost anywhere. I'll use the example of shooting through a backboard here. Tighten the clamp down as far as it will go without crushing anything. If you use the magic arm, make sure it is solidly attached to the clamp. Mount the camera on the camera plate, position it at the right angle and tighten down the arm lock. Attach the radio slave and motor drive cable, making sure to make it as low profile as you can. Don't draw attention to it with dangling cable and straps (I always like it when folks say "Oh, Witte, I didn't realize you had a remote up."). Watch for reflections coming off the back of the glass or the banner logos. It's heartbreaking when you have a great image, but you have "STACBOB" (bobcats) written across the players' chests. To get rid of that, you'll need to use a black mask. Basically, it's just gaffers tape stuck to more gaffers tape to make a big black sheet of tape. Below is a diagram for the above mentioned.
