i love the facial expressions!
Baseball, yes boring.
Tennis... not so bad.
I'm finally shooting Women's Tennis this Sunday... ohhh boy.
Yeah. Baseball was HELLA slow today. Tennis could have been good but I only had about 15 minutes to grab at least one picture of each player. I was called last minute to do it
They all look like they are shitting or just took a shit.
Sweet. Thats the look I was going for.
In for upskirt shots.
They wear bloomers...
I know, still think its sexy.
Nice shots this set. Not big on the tennis shots don't like the angle but some good ball shots. I'd lose 2 & 3 in the tennis 2 is to soft and not interesting enough to make it happen and 3 cropped the head.
Ball shots I like. Better colour and clarity, looks like you were able to move around too. If i have any suggestion it would be for some more action or base running.
My inexperience shows in the baseball. I was trying to get other action but it just never happened. I was able to stay for 5 innings and the only times people scored they walked across the plate. Pretty boring game. I think it went 11 innings 3-2. I just have to remember to stay focused even if its boring and keep looking around for what could be a good shot.
Thanks for the comments.
It's hard to stay focused when you aren't familiar with a sport or find it of any interest. If it makes you feel better my assignments last week was shooting Kurt Browning(Olympic Figure Skater) who showed up hour and a half late then did 7 minute meet and greet instead of hour plus demo. Then St. Paddy's Day Parade and a trip to the Sugar Bush lol.
Sorry to hear about that.
I just need to concentrate more about being a photographer. I know that there were some shots I missed when I was shooting basketball earlier this season because i got too caught up in watching the game haha.
Easier to shoot a sport if you know the sport well. So take some time to watch it, learn it, appreciate it.
I just pulled that out of my ass but I did read it somewhere.
It's very true. Whenever I shoot a new sports I go and watch videos / read articles etc as do most other sports photographers.
I shot a golf tournament the past 3 days and I'm glad I read a long list of golf terminology or else I wouldn't have had much of a clue what most guys were talking about.
Were these taken with the 400 F2.8? Or something else in your assenault?
Flex in the strings = awesome
rest of the photo is kinda meh... but the ball hitting the racket is
damn didn't even notice that
nice shots, nice gear
Almost all were the 400. The wide shot from the outfield was the 16-35 and the tighter shot from the outfield was with a 70-200
Whats the Exif on them
Get an EXIF viewer...
Model = Canon EOS-1D Mark III
Exposure Time = 1/5000"
F Number = F2.8
Exposure Program = Manual
ISO Speed Ratings = 320
Focal Length = 400mm
Thats just one. They vary but really only the Tv and/or ISO. Av was always 2.8 I think.
