p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Indoor Track and Field Conference Champs


One of my favourite meets, the Ontario University Athletics Championships, was last weekend. A few selected images from the meet. All with a Canon R3 and 200 f2, 1/1000th, f2 at ISO 5000. An absolute blast to shoot in between coaching duties. C&C always welcome.

#1 -- winning the 60m 'glamour' event



#2 -- a very fast 4x200m relay team



#3 -- clutch jump of 2.20 on the first attempt for the gold



#4 -- first lap of the 4x800m had a few elbows up


#5 -- some fast hurdling, too

Thanks for the kind words. I borrowed the lens from Canon CPS for the meet. I'll admit, that while I liked it, I didn't find it different enough from a 300 f2.8 to justify paying the going market rate for one. The 200 is missing that dreaminess level that came with the extra 1/3 of a stop that the 200 f1.8 had. That said, I may well be buying a 200 f2 next week -- I found an exceptionally good deal on a used one that makes selling the 300 and replacing it with the 200 an almost even swap, if the lens is in decent shape.

Thanks! It is my sport -- I was pulling double duty coaching and shooting at the meet.

Thanks! If you're open to a couple of quick all-purpose guidelines for this sport, 1) sit or kneel so the lens axis is at waist height (or lower); 2) check your backgrounds -- you know where the athlete will be so plan to have a nice clear or story telling background (i.e., my 60m finish photo above). A great sport to photograph. Have fun!

Great work. I shoot with the Fuji H2s and the Fuji 200mm F2. Perfect sports lens.
