    Kay, our team was 4-0 undefeated starting this game, and left 5-0 this was my first away game, and my first game with my new lens. I hate handholding heavy stuff >.< a monopod would be a plus. For those of you who haven't heard, I've gotten a job offer from cubberly studios to cover highschool sports for several different schools, based on my sports album which these are coming from. Check em out.

    Any advice would be appreciated, though advice on how to properly shoot a white balance card (and whether to use something WHITE, or gray) would be just wonderful, because you can tell I'm having some trouble :noes:

    Much better

    but you gotta get the big lenses if you're expecting professional results. Too much DOF, even at 2.8

    80-200? 120-300?

    low light sports really need something like the 300 2.8. theres a certain other photographer on the board that shoots sports sometimes that has or is going to have too many long Nikon lenses very soon :noes:

    last one is probably the best. I'm not trying to be mean, but the pictures aren't very interesting, and a little grainy. If the noise was lost and they were sharper they would be good.

    edit: the soccer ones, not the football ones.

    Iso 1600 ftl :(

    I need a decently balanced (read: expensive) shoe-mount flash. I'll borrow one from work when I've had my job for a little while :) unfortunately, the lights are aimed to light up the center of the field a la football, and most of my soccer shots tend to occur slightly outside of the "hot zone". Thus, they're dark, and I have to push the ISO higher and rely on the flash, THEN ps it to get enough shutter speed. Shooting raw isn't an option, my computer just can't handle the files, and I'd pull my freaking hair out waiting on it.

    Anyway, powderpuff football. And trust me, those soccer pics are sharp, at full size. I r teh noob at resizing.

    D70 isn't the best for higher ISOs :hs:

    Powder Puff shots look good though
