Football: A Nice Clear Day, With A Nice Muddy Field

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by kiz5, Aug 10, 2008.

  1. Some nice, wet muddy football! Rain held off, and started about 10 minutes after the game finished. Been a wet summer up here, and yesterday was filled with constant rain (see my other thread from yesterday's games), and as a result, I was able to come away with a bunch of shots I really liked.

    I know a lot of you guys here enjoy your football, so hope you like these. :)  Harsh criticism is welcomed.

    Shot with a D300 + 300 2.8.

    I really like 8. These are great shots. I need to get to know my local high schools better. My kids are way to young for this type of action.

    Any tips on getting in to photograph High School sports?
  5. Really depends where you are. In Canada, you just walk up, and no one asks questions, nor complains. People are just happy that you're there.

    While the US market isn't big now for action shots, people up here seem to be loving them.
  6. These shots are starting to get me in the mood for football again. Looks as though i need to move, if you guys up there love buying action stuff.
  7. These are great. Good action and nice tight shots!
  8. I think the main reason, is because most people up here have nothing more than entry level DSLRs, and low level lenses. That, and the area I live in is a mix of mid and higher level incomes. I've been able to target schools and teams that have more money to waste, which is always a good thing.

    Heck, one guy bought every photo of his kid, from 8 games or so, even if they were soft. Not a problem for him, as it just ended up being a write-off for his company. Gotta love when you get customers like that, who have 3 kids, and 2 just going into the high school level! :)
