First time baseball

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by bvonarx, Jul 6, 2008.

  1. After seeing so many good baseball shots on this forum I had to go a try it for myself, after all, just how hard can it be? :rolleyes:  (that I need to practice with my new 300 f/2.8, thanks Jbear). Well I found out pretty fast just how hard it really is as my meager results prove, but a good time was had none the less.

    You have a fine series of images here Brooks. I like the action that you caught and they are presented tightly and clearly. Very nice shooting.

    Very nice Brooks. Enjoy the new lens
  11. Very very nice Brooks.

    What is the story behind the ump in #4? Are you in trouble?

    What are your thoughts of the 300? Focus speed and so on.

  12. Thanx Chris, actually he was pointing out that spot I was shooting from was in play, bark was worse than his bite

    Many thanx, sometimes you get lucky

    Many thanx, got to keep learning and your shots are a big help

    Thanks Frank, while shooting I was thinking of the great shots put up by you and the other usual suspects, long way to go to meet that standard

    Thanx Wendy

    Thanx Wilbur, soccer is my fav and I can't wait for the season to start

    Thankx, need to work on the PP a little though

    Thanx Mike, what a differnce it makes from the 80-200, a whole new learning curve to master

    Thanx Alex, so far I love it

    Thanx Otter, the ump was telling me to move if a foul pop came my way. As far as the lens is concerned at times I felt as if I could not keep up with it swinging it from third to first etc, but I got a little better as the day went on. Also I learned how and when to use the focus lock buttons, very helpful when properly used. Focusing speed very good, weight is an issue, seems pretty sharp at f/2.8, it will be awesome for track.
  13. I just love #10. Never seen anything like it. Awesome
