    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 :squint:

    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.

    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

    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.
