    Feelings should be hurt, tear into me O.T :mamoru:


    Background: I play rugby for ASU [on the B side] so i snapped some pictures of varsity matches. The first set was at night time and I was having a bitch of a time when ever they were moving, so I did not get a lot of action shots. The next game was in the day and I was having focusing issue I could never get it to auto focus on the guy with the ball, it always focus on the back ground. I switched to manual and it was really tough to focus and adjust zoom at the same time while trying to move with the player. If you have any advice on how to do this better or something I should Improve one, let me know!

    Most are kinda boring. You need more shots of the action depicting the brutal sport that it is.

    1. his hand is cut off, and hte is in an awkward pose not looking at the camera or anywhere near it ZZZZ

    2. This has nothing to do with rugby, would be cooler if you could see the field, maybee.

    3. The motion blur does nto help, and the framing is bad

    4. - rest, number them first

    [​IMG]

    This shot has potential with the exception that I can not see where the ball is going, it feels unbalanced, you should have framed it differently.

    [​IMG]

    I need to see there legs, they are important, the framing is off here too, you should probably center the ball...

    most fo these feel about as much like a snapshot as they can.
