State Trap shoot last weekend. Entered for the 1st time (hit more than 50%:biggrin:) & took my camera along for the ride. 1st time shooting (camera & gun) a shotgun competition.

Most of the photos - D3 with a 70-200VR2 - alone, or with a 1.4 or a 2.0 TC.

C&C welcome

Any advice for improvements & or what could be considered essential gear / poses / positions welcome - this shoot took place at my local club & I have a feeling, I could be shooting more events in the future

some nice work, would like to shoot that one day...like the wadding in your favorite.

I didn't check the rest out, do you have any of the clays themselves getting shattered?
Only from Long range - Even with the 2TC, the 200 mm couldn't make the clay large enough in the frame on its own

#5 is awesome catching the bullet in flight. You shot at 1/4000 and you could still see the movement of the bullet. It was traveling real fast.

Nice series. Kind of interesting to see two expensive hobbies (photography and shotguns) mixed. I used to shoot a quite a bit of skeet and the occasional trap range or mixed clays myself.

Thanks..My financial controller really wishes I hadn't found trap shooting as well as the photography:biggrin:

Next time I am going to try even faster...see if I can actually get the lead shot
