| p.1 #4 · Shooting football for the first time (college) - looking for advice/tips |
Hey guys- I'm looking for tips and advice for shooting football. I've only shot baseball but I'm trying to get into professional freelance sports photography and need to add new sports to my portfolio, so now I have an opportunity to shoot at the Georgia Dome on November 3rd for the Georgia State game. I'll be shooting the game with a Nikon D3s (400mm f/2.8 AF-S attached) & a Nikon D3 (70-200mm f/2.8 VR II attached). I'll also have a Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 handy.
There's a few things I'm wondering:
Do I stay in one spot most of the time? Or do I try to move along with each play as it goes down the field?
Whenever I shot night games over the summer while interning for the Braves, I tried to maintain a shutter speed faster than 1/500. With the fact that I'm shooting inside the Georgia Dome, I know I'll need a high ISO, so it'll be like shooting at night, but what is the minimum shutter speed I should maintain in order to keep action still? Football seems to move a lot faster than baseball.
Also what are the do's and dont's I should know about?
Thanks in advance!
The last game I shot in the GA Dome was last year and my settings were 1/1250 @ ISO 3200 (@2.8). So you should be fine light wise.
