Girls H.S LAX

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by mike mac, Apr 28, 2007.

  1. I shot the local H.S game today since my pay gig was postponed due to wet fields in north Jersey.
    It was overcast, which I like all shot with the d2X and the 300 2.8 with 1.4 tele

    Great shots as usual Mike. You and Frank (Eng45ine) should think about running a photo clinic for sports shooting. I really admire the creamy look you get ..... ofcourse the timing, composition, colors and sharpness is great as in all your shots. Outstanding Mike!
     
  7. Doesn't get much better than this.

    Great shots Mike, as usual. Someone else used the word that best describes your shots. "Smooth". While there are others in this forum that post great shots that are sharp with great colors, yours have a smoothness that I don't see in anyone elses. Just my opinion and I don't mean to offend anyone.
     
  14. Thanks again everyone for looking and commenting this is the best sports forum on the net, I participate on other boards but this is the best and friendliest
     
  15. Mike these are great. Not only are they sharp as tacks, but to make it better you captured the intensity of the athletes. My hat's off. Now I have a target to emulate.

  16. Thanks Rich
    I think the 100-300 you jsut picked up will be a fantastic sports lens, I cant wait to see your results.I hsot alongside a gentleman last week who was using the Sigma 100-300 he loved it for sports
     
  17. A question for you and Frank (Eng45ine). How do you set up your for daylight sports?

    Thans, Rich

    ISO: according to ambient lighting and what shutter speeds I need to maintain
    Mode: Aperture Priority with aperture somewhere between wide open to f/8 depending on the DOF I need.
    WB: according to skies
    AF-Continous focusing
    Metering: matrix
    EV compensation: pending highlights
