Here are a couple from yesterday. Critiques welcome.
They look very serious about that game :>)))
Nice shots Russ..
The only thing I would have done different is to have cropped the second shot a lot tighter... Other than that, very cool shots.
Very nice I cant wait I get to shoot a day game next Saturday for our H.S team shotign at night is as frustrating as it gets
Hey Big Russ,
These are nice shots. I love the intensity in the eyes of the defender in #1. I just wish you had more of their bodies in the frame.
#2 is one of those with the busy background. I have tons of those that are great action shots but the interest is always lost when you can see someone walking, standing, doing whatever in the background.
Not that I'm a pro but #3 is by far the best. You have the intensity, partially blurred background, sharp focus, and outstanding action to boot. Shots like these are the ones that make for the best pictures.
I am getting my experience from shooting a few and sending some of my images along to my mentor who is a pro shooter of sports for many years. His critiques are the best at helping me get better and not just firing away waisting shots that I end up deleting later. There is just so much to learn about when to shoot, the best spots on the field to shoot, camerra settings and so on. I just wish that I had more time to get out and shoot.
nice shots all,
crop 'em tigher my man.
They are all nice images and I agree that cropping tighter will produce a very nice finished image. Not sure about what post processing you did but a bit of levels, USM and cropping is all you should need. It is tough to do sometimes but the pros that I have consulted have told me to always crop tight. Give it a try and see if you like it.
