Finally some action...

  1. Well it was a busy week for me even though I had shot very little action. A few T&I's and a corporate event with a sports theme, but no action. Was supposed to shoot football and soccer on friday but rain dampened the day and postponed many events.

    Well i got my chance finally on sunday night of all nights. A rescheduled football game and what a blow out it was. Had some decent shots, was in the wrong position for others but it all worked out.

    Nice Shooting!
  13. Very nice .. Thanks for sharing them ...

  14. These are superb Geoff, nice work.
  15. Like that No. 4 shot, did you PP the face?
  16. Thanks everyone!

    Brooks I did not do any PP on the face, just some levels adjustments. Might have tweaked the shadows a little too much.
