Per the Daily:

Gophers women’s basketball guard Amaya Battle has an eye for shots on and off the court.

While the team was on a break in May, Battle started a photography Instagram account, @battletimeflicks. She started sharing her new hobby with her friends and family to explore her identity outside of being a basketball player.

Battle has been interested in photography since her senior year of high school, when she began taking photos with her phone. In May, she decided to level up to a better camera to shoot photos for a scrapbook of her summer.

“I went to the camera store and they gave me a real 35-millimeter camera,” Battle said. “I started with that and just took off ever since.”

Since then, it’s been all gas and no brakes for the young photographer. Battle has been experimenting with different types of photography — including nature, sports and using people as subjects.

“I really like taking pictures with people,” Battle said. “I love their natural element.”

Go Gophers!!
