    Bag question for sports shooting

    I am not familiar with the LowePro Slingshot. I have the Thinktank Airport Ultralight and have been more than happy with it. You should be able to carry all of your gear in it. Plus, there is space for your laptop. Pics of this bag can be seen here...

    Congrats. It's exciting when others start to notice your work. If I were you, for 1-5 pics, I would at least request a free ad. If the Yearbook staff asks for subsequent submissions, I would request a contract and some additional perks. Who is creating/producing your Yearbook...

    Youth baseball

    Hey Ricky, You did well for a first try. On the first one, I would have cropped it a bit tighter so that the pitcher's body filled the frame. Great intensity of the eyes on the second shot - just push that batter out of the way next time so s/he doesn't block your shot. Lol. You will...

    Monopod suggestions?

    Thanks to all for the reply. I see that I have a lot to learn about monopods and have more questions and perhaps my questions require more info.?.?. I was able to locate the Manfrotto online. So... I also need to buy a 'head' for the monopod to achieve my desired-result of 'switching...

    Sports Forum Challenge - #56 Super Telephoto

    It is my understanding that in order to submit a pic(s) for this challenge that one must have a lens 300MM or longer. If so, this challenge is about the gear. If not, I apologize for not understanding this challenge thoroughly and ask for clarification. Thanks.

    I would have rather been on the sidelines in Tampa

    Thanks CDN. I enjoyed your work as well. You have great shots of the crowd. I see the players 'loosened up' a bit on your half of the parade route. I think that I was the 3 person that they passed as the parade started. Thanks Steve, Steve, Rod and Glenn. It was a great day.

    Gymnastics

    Definately a hard venue w/poor lighting and tight conditions. ISO was jumping all over the place. I would have loved to have used the 70-200 exclusively. Not in the cards this time. #1 - D700, 24-70MM/2.8 AF-C, 2.8, 1/640, spot metering, ISO 3200 #2 - D700, 70-200MM/2.8 AF-C, 2.8...

    How much better is the 24-70 over the 17-55?

    I am looking at the 24-70MM for my D700 to replace my 17-55MM for the D200. I shoot manual. Without an aperture dial on the 24-70MM, am I to assume that you shoot 'aperture priority' with it?
