Football, 3 firsts for me

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by Gary7770, Aug 30, 2008.

  1. First time shooting football
    First time under the lights
    First time in the rain...


    All shots with the D3, 400mm @ 2.8

    Seems like a lot more noise then I would have expected from a D3.
    Nice images though.

    not sure Gary, why shoot 1/2000, 1/1000 and have such high ISO ? Sort of lose a bit of IQ at these settings I think

    Peak action for sure

    Gary you need to pick an easier first time ! You had some extreame conditions for sure.
    The images seem a tad flat - maybe a color boost and a little more contrast might make
    these pop a little more. With that said I must say I know zero about the D3 so guess I
    should not be giving advise. lol
  6. I guess with the high iso (12800) and some cropping ,the noise becomes more apparent. Thanks for the comment

    Thanks, Probably mine too.

    Your right on that, wanted to make sure that I'd be able to stop the action and thats the sacrifice that I made. I think that either with proper rain gear, I might have been able to make some adjustments during the game.

    Why go easy? Lol Thanks for the advise.
