Very nice action shots! I like!!!

RE: Football Season

hey linda...thanks...first game..shot almost 300 pics (way to many) but got the chance to shoot in natural light..low light..and artifical light..learned some about how to adjust settings to still get a decent pic.
The guys in black are both my boys..#20 is a senior..rushed for almost 100 yards in three quarters...#3 is a sophmore...3 sacks, 2 pressures, and lead team in tackles.....yea, I'm a proud dad!!

RE: Football Season

So what kind of camera do you have and what kind of zoom? They are great pictures. I take pics of my gradnson and the daylight is so much better but a little harder under lights.
I have a Cannon Xti with Cannon 70mm-300mm zoom. It takes nice pictures but it depends on the lighting in the field. It is all night game in Western MN. I use the shutter priority but have to cut it down quite a bit and really don't get the good clear pics that I want sometimes'll do. Some fields are better than others and I stay up in the stands when I take them.
Keep up the good work and take as many as you can. It is really fun!!!
I also have a daughter who barrel races and have gotten some great pics of her.


RE: Football Season

Hi june...I use a Nikon d40x with a 55-200 zoom...this game was a scrimmage set up for a local charity, just lucky it was an early Tuesday our team will play in something called Hootens Kickoff Classic (a big deal for our little school)...also an early game...after that, I will be at the mercy of the lights.
Shooting from the sidelines is much better for pics, but I didn't get into the game like I would have from the stands..thats a hard trade off :-)
My daughter used to barrel race, gave that up to perform with the Rodeo of the Ozarks Rounders....a drill team that performs at local rodeos and promotes the Rodeo of the Ozarks..she really enjoys being a part of that orginization.
I have my camera with me most of the time...I have taken some really weird last night a frog was in the window of my shop eating he got his picture made....I have several pics of this little bird, begging for attention, while sitting proudly atop a pile of horse apples...its a stupid subject, but a funny picture!! So I agree with is really fun!!
