p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 2013 TX Track & Field Championship


I got to spend part of Saturday at the Texas Track a& Field Championship. This was the second track meet I've been to and shot. Lots of fun as it is a target rich environment.





I was warming up as this was going on when I entered. I shot more, but from the other side so heads were facing me. Still. I liked the body position over the bar here.

  Canon EOS 7D    EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM lens    115mm    f/3.2    1/6400s    200 ISO    0.0 EV  







I liked this perspective and went with this in mind.

  Canon EOS-1D Mark III    EF300mm f/2.8L IS USM lens    300mm    f/4.0    1/2500s    200 ISO    +0.7 EV  







Backgrounds were tough. Hate the tent and judge, love the Capital. Couldn't angle it otherwise.

  Canon EOS-1D Mark III    EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM lens    195mm    f/4.0    1/1000s    200 ISO    +1.0 EV  







Local boy from Copperas Cove who won.

  Canon EOS-1D Mark III    EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM lens    200mm    f/4.0    1/1600s    200 ISO    +1.0 EV

Two more.





In post I tried desayturating the colors on this one - for a variety.

  Canon EOS-1D Mark III    EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM lens    200mm    f/4.0    1/2000s    200 ISO    +1.0 EV  







My first real attempt at panning. Not great, but different and fitting.

  Canon EOS 7D    EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM lens    200mm    f/25.0    1/30s    100 ISO    0.0 EV

Love that second one. Thinking maybe just try and straighten it a bit more.

I straightened in in Lightroom, PS6 shows it maybe off by a very small amount, as I looked at the top of the hurdles. And as I scroll the screen, it isn't off much, but I agree it looks tilted.

also like the hurdles...classic.

A question more for the others as well as you, on the first HJ, I see you straightened for the bar, but this throws the background off...which is better?

I think it looked awkward with the subject tilted.

Was going to try and do something like #2 this season, but couldn't make a single track event. Great set here. Panning with people is hard. But you did a pretty good job at it.

Thanks. My panning came out better than I'd hoped, beginners luck, but still rewarding.

I like the second one as well. Good idea to see it from that perspective.

#2!! Never thought going under before the start! I will now, thanks!

I have been panning more in running events as well. I was sick of seeing the same frozen running shots. After a few meets they all looks the same.

I just noticed you were from Kileen. I spent 3 years at Ft. Hood and lived in Copperas Cove during 97-00.

So much has changed here. You'd be amazed at the roads and buildings. The Hood Stadium is gone, a new hospital is being built in its place and a new stadium that the high schools will also use for games is over at Clear Creek behind the PX.
