i used to shoot football about 35 years ago for the fun of it (MY high school's games when i was in community college) with Tri-X pan pushed about 4 stops...

digital is so much easier to just crank the ISO up...

i shot everything with my 200 f2.8. not i use my 70-200 f2.8...

i really could use some more reach but a 300 or 400 isnt in my budget...

there was one more image between these two but there wasnt any action or anything that would make the it interesting to look at. either of these could be used in a photo recap in a newspaper individually though...



in looking at mine compared to everyone else so far, i have to ask, do mine need to be cropped more tightly?

theres one or two that probably cant be without losing too much context but mine seem to be missing the "in your face" aspect of football...

You will get people that tell you not to shoot football with a 70-200 as it doesn't have enough reach, and while that is a true statement, it is short on the reach end, it's still totally manageable. However, you need to utilize your position much more wisely in order to stay with the action. Do you have sideline access? If so, try and stay no more than ten yards behind the line of scrimmage if trying to capture anything behind the LOS, and try to stay no more than 15-20 yards ahead of the action on the other end of the LOS. That should allow you to have much tighter crops SOOC.

I depends what "story" you are trying to tell with your picture. There is the old expression shoot tight and crop tighter when shooting sports.

Yes, all but the 2nd would benefit from being cropped tighter.

ive got a 1.4x II to use as well but of course that knocks my 280 (max length) down to f4. it would have been fine on these images since its not dark yet but later in the game i was at ISO 10,000 in order to maintain my 1/800 shutter speed...
'
yes ive got sideline access. these were all taken from the sideline other than a couple from just behind the endzone. and i do try to stay within those distances of the L-O-S. not always where i end up but most of the time...

ill just crop them more in post, if i cant get them in the camera..

thanks!

Dave

the issue with cropping too tightly (to me) seems that the plays (and in hockey too) are awfully spread out so in order for the image to make sense, there needs to be all the pertinent players (no pun intended) in the image...

maybe i can convince them to not play the game so spread out...? lol

Depends on the story being told. A QB going 21 of 25 for 300 yards a 3 td's you probably want that tight crop.
A goal line stand preserving the victory, wide angle .... Selling action shots to parents, tight crop..... Photo-journalism
probably somewhere in the middle. I don't know, again I think it depends on the circumstance.
