Yeah Soccer is back!

  1. I forgot how much I love shooting soccer, any age any place. Girls set here, boys set to come. Lots of rust to shake off but here they are.

    Nice series Brooks, love the isolation and the action. Exposures are nailed and the sharpness is like a tack.

    Rust? Where? I don't see any rust!

    Excellent images, good isolation, color..tack sharp. If this is your idea of rust, I can't wait to see your images when you get up to speed.

    I'm just learning to shoot soccer myself. This is my second year, and I can appreciate how much skill is involved in getting images as good as these.
    IOW, it's not easy.
    Well done!
  11. Thanx Frank, isolation is almost impossible at this level of play so I takes what I gets

    Thanx Mark, I am still getting used to the aperture and speed dials when shooting manually, have to talk myself though the adjustments.

    Thanx Chris, I'm begining to really appreciate high overcast mornings.

    Thanx Toph, can't wait for the weekend to shoot again.

    Thanx Jim, rust is subjective I suppose

    Thanx Joe, the rust is the memory of all the missed shots of a run or reaction I failed to anticipate.

    Thanx Biggs, still need to anticipate better, no excuses after this.

    Thanx Greg, the kids make it fun

    Thanx Jeff, shooting soccer can be frustrating to shoot but well worth the effort, especially when the kids ask to see themselves on the LCD and see a star.

    great work mate, glad you're excited to be back out there again and love it so much,

    My soccer season's almost over and I'll know I'll miss it heaps.
  13. superb isolation on every one
    this is what parents buy
  14. Thanx, come on up to the east coast when you need a fix and I'll come down when you start up again!

    Thanx, so far pretty good with the sales
