The game started with three fairly quick goals the first an own goal by New Britain. Score 3-0 Simsbury after about 5 minutes. After that Simsbury seemed to back off a bit and there was a lot of passing back and forth around midfield. About 10 minutes into the second half Simsbury scored another two quick goals and then another later in the second half. One indicator of the lack of balance in the game is shots on goal; Simsbury 15, New Britain 1.
John, these are very good. All of our soccer matches are in the late afternoon/early evening. Unfortunately many of the field positions means lots of back light .
We have a big FIFA sponsored youth tournament coming up next month with Luis Vigo and some Brazilian stars coming... I'm really anxious about which venues they will be using. My son A.J will be playing in some matches and shooting the rest with me. Should be fun and hope I can do half as well as you've done. Cheers, Tom
I struggle with side-lighting and rear-3/4 lighting all the time, I can usually work with the results in PS5 to get pretty decent screen images but have a hard time when trying to make prints.
Could you share the exposure data on your images -- especially last one?
I shoot a D300 and a D3 and depending how hot it is and how much I've been shooting I use a 200-400 using stopped down 1/3 or 2l3 of a stop and I'm really tired I'll put on my 70-300 f4.5/6.3 ---each always from my monopod, When the fields were smaller I used my 70-200 f2.8
I shoot hand held, and nearly always on one knee. The DR on the D800 is excellent allowing you to pull detail from the shadows without picking up a lot of noise. These were all shot with the 70-200 f2.8, ISO 200, A at f2.8. I used -.7ev to keep the whites from being blown and handled the shadows in pp.
