p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Finally...spring sports


Now that all of my winter/indoor sports assignments are completed and spring team sports photos are in production, I am finally able to cover some action.

These are for newspaper and an on-line sports magazine.

One thing I do like about spring matches, games and events is that I am outdoors and much closer to the action and photo access is limited to media so no crowds to contend with...and I can use every lens in the bag.

Thanks,

I have been so busy with banners and action collages that I haven't had time to even think about posting any game action images.

Youth and high school basketball programs have ordered these action collages for the past 15 years and it usually numbers between 75-80 every season and every senior in every sport now gets a banner so I spend many hours designing these after taking all the photos.

No spring sports yet. Kids haven't even been outside, still under snow.

I've NEVER been to a track where anyone could use a 400mm at the long jump pit.

This is a big stadium with long jump pits at one end outside of running track.

Plenty of room to use the 400 at either of long jump areas. The boys face one way and girls the other.

For most track meets at this facility I cover all running events, shot and discus using the 400 f/2.8 and shorter lenses for the high jump and pole vault.

Districts and regional state meets are held at this stadium every year due to the size of facility.

Baseball is 400 mm 95 % of the time.

Outstanding photos Lee. I noticed some higher shutter speeds - can you let me know if there is any advantage you see on this? I'm not anywhere near the shooter you are, but I was always told 1/1600 to 1/2000 is all you really need for the action. The one that turned my head was the 1/4000 on the baseball of the second baseman. Love the photo. So crisp.

Thanks...

This time of day, batters are in shade and fielders are in sunshine so I leave the iso high enough for shutter speeds at the plate.
