| p.1 #10 · Flash football at night? Any other fall suggestions? |
My usual setup includes the flash in the hotshoe in ttl mode and the flash on the monopod at 1/2 power to improve recycle time. I also have external battery packs attached to each flash to improve recycle time. I do only get 1-2 shots per play, so anticipating the action is critical. Because I try to get pictures of everyone, I often miss the "big plays" because I focus on one player for a couple of plays, then another player for a few plays, and so on. It's the only way that I've been successful at capturing most of the defensive players. I use my 300mm lens as my primary and have a second body with a 70-200 or 24-105 with flash in the hotshoe for endzone pictures. The light in the endzones even at fields with "good" lighting is usually abysmal.
