09-17-08 HS Golf

  1. Just doing my thing once again. Here are some shots from yesterdays match. Not your typical all action as I was working on some other shots as well. Trying to get more than just the action, which is a little bit tougher in HS setting rather than PGA stuff as they just go about their business as they would be holding up the paying customers once they are on the course.

    I really like these. I have a mom who wants me to get some pics of her high school golfer..I just have not had the time to get them done yet. I hope to get something close to these.

    Well done.
     
  3. Very nice Geoff, maybe I'll see you out there today!

    I like your framing, it shows the solitude of a golfer being a team of one out there. Nice bokeh on the last two.

    Enjoy the warmth, the hockey season gets cranked up here real soon. (football last game is Oct 4 and first real game in hockey is that night!)

    Good job, Geoff. I really enjoy playing and shooting golf. #3, 5, and 6 stand out to me. What lens are you using for these?
     
  7. Great shots!!

    In picture #3 I noticed the young man is using the "baseball" grip. You dont see that very often.

    take care,

    Rick
     
  8. Like that No. 5 shot, nice lighting

    Very nice ...!! .. i think you did a nice job with framing and subject content !!
     
  10. Thanks Rod, make sure you get out soon, the good light will be going away fast.

    Was great meeting up with you, hope you had fun in a little impromptu golf, even if it was a little short.

    Thanks Tim, football ends on the 4th? wow, short season. Figure Thanksgiving was always the last game for football. Anyways can't wait to see your new hockey shots with the set up.

    Thanks Alan!

    Tracey, 300mm 2.8. I primarily use that lens for all sports if I can I just love it.

    Thanks Rick, very true, a baseball grip isn't normal, at least in golf. Bet I'll see him on the baseball team in the spring.

    Thanks Brooks, granted I can't take all the credit for the lighting conditions, :biggrin:

    Thanks Topher, I am finally breaking out of my shell on how to shoot golf, and try different things.
