p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · HS Girls Soccer - Round 1 District Playoffs


Had some beautiful light last night for most of the game with a 5pm start time, but as the game went into overtime, we had to crank the ISO as the sun went down on the unlit field. I was thrilled to see my daughter score the game winner with just a few minutes before they would have gone to penalty kicks. Onto round 2 on Saturday for harsh light, but maybe we'll get some cloud cover from hurricane Matthew.

Anyway, about these images. I sat on the ground to get a really low angle and sometimes the crown of the field hurt,cutting off feet. I also hand held my 400 2.8 IS, and while it was tough to hold, I only shot action near me, for the most part, so rested it on the ground frequently. I find that I am much better and tracking action when not using a monopod. So much so, that I've even contemplated getting a 300 to track even better. Maybe I'll just save and get the 400 2.8 IS II so I can hold hold for longer periods. I love the low angle from sitting right on the grass and staying low with the glass.

Tim, love the low light action captures. All good and my pick is #3 We have same type of crowned field here. I've resorted to using a small 3 legged collapsible seat in order to get the 400 up just enough to keep players with their feet attached

Yeah, a proper crown would be tolerable. This is more of rolling meadows you'd find in the mid-west plains.

Thanks Matt. I've got a great small stool that gets me about 1 foot off the ground but I was trying to get even lower. It doesn't work too well on our undulating field. In some places, the crown is probably 2 - 3 feet or more and it's not consistent.

Sounds like our fields are very similar. I've been using this one for a few years. Cheaper models just didn't cut it. Walkstool 45cm(18in)

all great work as usual Tim! Always look forward to your captures. And schlotz, that's an awesome idea! I hate having to kneel for shots and then getting up with gear on my back. For football I don't see using it, but for soccer, this product would be perfect!

Thanks

This is what I use. Folds flat. Easy to carry and matches my lens coat. :-)

Very nice shots, the light is great. Only problem with the light this time of year is that it disappears before the game is over.
