love the action
but.... the FACES IN #1.....
my favorite here
Darren this is really nice shooting. . .And at night it's even more impressive. Well done !
That first one makes me cringe...
Thanks Greg, thanks Rod
While the sun still played a small part early on in the night I used AutoISO, then changed to my regular settings at this stadium (which has very good light really)
The essential thing for night time sports imho is nailing the WB - preset it (I just find something white to shoot) and then blaze away.
All I now need to do is crop and sharpen for the web (both done here for these). No worrying about levels, saturation, NR or any of that other junk.
I can't believe that I used to use AutoWB or standard presets. Duh.
I also think the Nikon glass delivers nice IQ though also.
Excellent series Darren.
Simply incredible, Darren.
#3 is SI material.
Ugh....Darren, you're killing me. When I shoot soccer, I'm lucky to get the ball in the frame, you get headers as though you have the ball glued to the player's head!!! I am so amazed when I view quality soccer images, I know just how difficult it is to get the composition right as the plays happen. Sweet series buddy.
wow, excellent stuff.
These are some sweeeet shots. Thanks for sharing your tips as well.
Great action captures, good color, sharpness....
I can even see the sweat on the players...wow.
As for #1.... ouch!
Thanks all. I REALLY appreciate all the positive comments.
Nice work - I love the suncorp stadium.
Darren, these are fantastic. #7 is one of the best soccer shots I've ever seen.
You've really whet my appetite! Our soccer season starts very soon and I can only dream of photos of this quality!
thanks mate, yeah, it's a bit special, looks good cropped tioghter too
Very well done series Darren on o fyour best thanks for sharing
Nice shooting, that No. 6 is a winner, what exp and ISO?
You've really got that 300 2.8 working for you! Great shots & great expressions.
Keep up the good work.
Hi Brooks, thanks
Most (not all) shot at ISO1600, F/2.8, 1/800s. Early on in the evening before the sun went down and the lights were kicking in I had auto-iso on, but changed to manual metering once light fully artificial
Biggest thing to me is presetting WB. Makes a huge difference.
Lens probably helps too :smile:
