    I shot these yesterday and had a better experience with my settings. The sun was slightly obscured by some high Cirrus clouds which was definately appreciated. All shot with a D2H and 300mm f/2.8 in aperture priority, f/2.8. +0.7 eV Comp, Matrix metering around 1/2,500 sec.

    Sacked!!!

    As always, I am interested in knowing what I can do to improve my sports images. Please feel free to offer your opinions so I can do better in the future.

    Frank,

    These are awesome! They are sharp, show lots of movement and you held the whites! You must be very proud of these...I know I would be. Looks as though they were all having a very good time out on the field. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks Leigh,

    I am learning by trial and error...but these came out pretty good. I may try a bit less +eV next time depending on the lighting. Overall, I'm satisfied! I appreciate your comments.

    Thanks so much, Bruce. I appreciate the compliment very much.
     
  8. exposures

    Great captures of a fast moving sport. I'm most impressed with what appears to be perfect exposures. Sports teams should consider the hassles they create for us photographers with those uniforms that include dark colors combined with gleaming white :smile:

    Hey Tom...isn't that the truth. I just walked in the door from shooting two games tonight, our team wearing light blue over navy blue...and the visitors wearing white over white. Geez!!!
     
  10. At least...

    At least the Raiders (my best bud's fav team) are silver& (vs. white&) black :smile:. But you are developing the knack.
