    Cool shots! You really have a talent for sports action.

    How do you have your focus set up? Center point? Perimeter?

    Following the action and getting focus is still something I struggle with. I'm more comfortable with manually following focus on my old camera which is easier for me than trying to keep a focus point on the subject.

    Well now you can shoot football up with with the best of them with your fool frame camera and 400 2.8. I think a lot of bokeh is important in football since there's usually no less than 10 other guys in the background (except for catches and what not).

    I decided a while back football isn't a market I'd even attempt to target. If I didn't have an $8000 bike I'd probably at least have a 300 2.8 though.

    I'll try and shoot at least one game this year just for the fun of it. FB is fun to shoot at least once per season (although holy crap, the Volleyball vs Georgia match was in tents. . . probably more egg sighting than any football game I've ever seen).

    There are some good fucking photographs there, especially 3, 12, 14.

    Almost all of them could use a very very slightly tighter crop though, IMO.

    Was the 400 actually at 2.8? I've never shot with one, and I've never shot football, but I thought the background looks a bit too "in focus", maybe I expected shallower DOF than the lens really has.

    Thanks :wavey:

    Thanks man! I am using 21-pt dynamic focus (i keep my point towards the middle usually).

    Yeah come out there, it's always a good time.

    thanks big papa

    :cool:

    :cool:
    I have another pic from that sequence thats pretty good as well. just very similar to the one I posted.

    thanks :)


    :bigthumb:

    Thanks man, yeah these are the crops i submitted to the GT newspaper so i leave some room for layout/ formatting/ etc, but I agree with you.

    Yes sir.

    Yeah it was at 2.8 all day, the reasons some look out-of-whack is probably because some are tigher crops and some are not cropped at all.

    Nice clean shots. Everything really pops and the bokeh is :yum:

    A bunch of great shots. I really like 14, but would like to see it with a tighter crop on the kicker.
