Yesterday I finally found a little Lax that I have been trying to get to shoot. All I have to say is wow, what work you have to do to keep up. A very nice team that invited me to come back and shoot their last couple games. I am really going to try and get up there this weekend.

Nice ones Ty...

I'm with Rod...there is no LAX in MS..that I know of. Then again, 20 years ago, we didn't play soccer, now it's one of the most popular HS sports in the state.

Hey Rod,

How you doin? Thanks so much. I know what you mean about not getting this sport. I thought the same thing too before I searched all of the local high schools here in the city. What I found was a few schools do indeed have lacrosse teams. The one closet to me has a 10-1 record this season. I hope to be able to get to shoot them this coming week. Thanks again for looking.

Nicely done Ty. With the defenders, you should try to either wait for the stick to come forward or shoot horizontal. Also, it's not a lot of work if you just wait for the action. You'll never keep up. Pick a nice spot and just wait

Hey Alex, thanks so much. And thanks a bunch for the advice. This was my first time ever shooting lax. I will definitely work on your advice next time out for sure.

Hey Frank, thanks a bunch. I was on the way to see Tommy in the freshman presentation at LFA and stumbled upon these guys practicing. Hey there are actually a couple of lax games Tuesday evening if you guys want to switch gears. Let me know.

LAX here in NJ is huge tons of leagues and every H.S has both boys and girls sports.
If you try to follow the action you will drive your self nuts. I usually sit either 20 yards in front of the net and shoot toward the net and get the defenders or get the offensive rush coming up the field. If you notice play at one end I will go behind the net and shot the offensive team setting up the play.
If lighting is better at one ned remmebr they trade ends of the field at halftime.
BTW
You did very well. I takes a little different mindset to shoot LAX

Hey Mike, thanks for the pointers. I hope to get up to this school tomorrow after running a few errands. Alex gave me the same advice about picking a spot and setting up and lust letting the action come to me. We'll see how it goes if I get a chance to shoot tomorrow.

Hi Mark, what I think you are seeing is the late evening sun that was behind me. I can totally see how it could possibly look orange on your monitor. Thanks for looking.

Tyrone,

Nice shots! Could you share which lens and the f-stop?
Hi Mike, these were all shot with the Nikkor 300mm f/2.8 and I want to say that they were all shot wide open which is how I usually shoot especially as late in the day it was that evening. Thanks so much for looking.

Tyrone,

Thanks for the info. I have been trying to figure out why I don't like my shots as well as yours and several other on this forum. One of the big differences seems to be the OOF backgrounds (besides talent, timing, experience,.... :) ). I have the 300 f4 and a 70-200 f2.8. Tomorrow I am going to experiment a bit shooting both wide open and then comparing the results. I have been shooting the 300 f4 at f4.5 most of the time on the theory that stopped down a bit will give sharper images. That may be so, but they are less pleasing to me. Of course, if I can convince my wife that my son can start college next year, I'll just pick up my own 300 f2.8 tomorrow!
