p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Shot a new sport today, HS Water Polo!


Another first for me today! I shot Girls' High School Water Polo! It was a pretty fun shoot. It started out cloudy, then in & out of the sun. I used a 1d4 w/ a 300 2.8; a 1d3 w/ a 70-200 2.8 IS.

Normally I shoot pretty tight and tend to shoot more verts than horiz. In this sport I found myself shooting a tad loose and mostly horizontal.

As always, C&C welcome

Ralph,

I may be shooting this sport for my local HS this year, however it will be indoors. Is the 300 long enough to shoot the length of the pool for defenders or were these significant crops (they certainly don't appear to be). Also, is 70mm short enough at the near end? I'll have a 1d3 and a 40D with those same two lenses ...

3, 4, and 5 are my favs. Great colors and expressions. These kids (and anyone else who plays this sport) are amazing athletes.

Gary

Gary, I found about 2/3 of my shots were with the 300. As the players are at the far end, I found a 400 would have been nice, but it would have been over lensed anywhere else. I shot from a couple yards back from the far end (about 6-8 feet from the end of the pool and just off the corner). A 70 was ok, no need for anything shorter for what I was trying to get. I could have used a 24-105 or so for background shots, but for the game shots, I found the 300 & a 70-200 worked fine.

These weren't cropped too heavy. As I stated before, in other sports I shoot a lot of verts, H20 polo, around 2/3 horizontal....
