p.1 #1 · First FNL of the year.


First night of the Prep Football season. Thought I'd throw some up here for a little C&C. Ran into another FM member who was shooting for MaxPreps at this game. So I've met my first FM member from the sports corner.

Nice and tight shots of the action.

What ISO were you using for the night game?

I started the game at 1600 and then once under lights I was at 5000ISO and 1/640 for middle part of the field. 6400ISO and 1/500 - 1/640 near the end zones.

Nice work, Matt. My only nit is that with #7, I'd recommend changing the crop so as not to bulls-eye your subject--a bit tighter on the left, leaving the room to 'move into' on the right. Thanks for posting. I'm super stoked that football is upon us. First NCAA (Utah) game this Thursday night!

Thanks Russ for the feedback.

I'll explain my though process on 7(BTW I forgot to number and I'm sorry will edit and correct) I liked the symmetry of the defenders coming after him with him looking back. I see how it could probably be made better with your suggestion, but I think it's almost if not is full frame.

I like the crops, and you see faces and the ball. Very nice set. I am surprised you could these as sharp as they are at 1/640. I try to stay at 1/1000 but these are nice.

Totally subjective, Matt, and it looks like you made the right call.

Wow... rockin' it here Matt. I love #1 and #4, and #6 is plain STELLAR. Great angle, I'm almost wondering if there's a Lobster Cam at work this low.

I really dig the timing on #3 too, although dang it'd have been killer with a set of eyes showing through. Regardless great set.

Thanks Andy, Russ, Leo and DJ.


No lobster cam DJ, just my god given lack of height. I'm a whopping 5'5" and I kneel. So pretty much as if most guys were sitting ATG as Paul says!

Thanks for the comment Makoshark. I have gone back and forth with flash/no flash, but since I got the D3s I haven't used it. At times it would be useful, I have some really dark fields I shoot at. On those weeks I just resign myself to knowing I'll be in the ultrahigh ISO and deal with it in post.

Matt, thanks for sharing this set. Clean exposures and nice WB. Crops and action all look great. Best of luck this season.

Thanks Billy, now lets hope I can nail some of these at the Dome on thursday, in the whole 6 minute game!

What time are you going there? I was told I had to go in with the team at 4, which is going to suck since I really don't want to be at the game 2 hours before it starts, or 3 before I have to work. But I guess it is what it is.


What all gear are you taking with you?

I have to be there at 4 pm as well. Not sure of what gate we will be entering through, but I am sure we will see each other. As far as gear.....none you can use, Mr. Nikon.
I'll bring the Mark IV with the 400 2.8
Mark III with a 24-70, 70-200 and a flash
That should be more than enough.
