I brought my camera to a game a couple of weeks ago to shoot, just for the sake of shooting. I am now the quasi-official football team photographer. These are a few shots from the last couple of weeks. I was shooting a 20D + 70-200 f/4 L + Monopod. C & C welcomed.

I think they're pretty good given the equipment and lack of light.

I assume you were shooting wide open (f/4). What sort of shutter speeds were you able to make out with?

I would also like to see your settings. I've got a 30D with the F4 70-200, and I'll be shooting a night game this weekend. Also have a rental 100-400 4.5-5.6 I'll be using. Used it for a day college game last weekend, but that was at 1/1600 (ISO 100). Figure I'll be at ISO 800 and about 1/800 for the night game. Not sure if I can make it good or not...

Nice job, by the way ;)

The first two were at ISO 800, 1/250, f/4. The second two were at ISO 100, 1/1000 and 1/500 respectively, also wide open. Thanks for the feedback, keep it coming. =]

I doubt you'll be anywhere near ISO 800 1/800 SS with either of those lenses unless that college field has really really good lights.

+1 More like ISO 1600/3200 1/500th if you are really, really lucky:confused:

Even though the first shots is underexposed a bit, I can tell the field it was shot on is pretty well lit. If you took this at ISO 800 and still had 1/250 on the shutter, you should be ok.

If you really plan on using the f/4 lens, set the shutter to 1/500 and raise ISO until you have a good exposure. Noise sneaks in when you underexpose, so try really hard to keep the exposures at zero.

Good action shots, BTW.

So, I don't have a lot of experience with high ISO... You're saying I'd be better off at ISO 3200, shutter at 1/500 then trying to pull an underexposed shot up a stop at ISO 800?

It is just about all I do, shooting at high ISO. And the absolute worst thing you can do is underexpose and then try and push it a stop or more in post processing. To do so will increase noise exponentially. Proper exposure, of course, is always important. But at low ISO's you can often save exposures some in post. At high ISO's proper exposure is absolutely critical.

Yes, definitely. The problem with underexposing night football (if shooting raw) is that when you correct for exposure in post, the noise shows up HUGE.

Higher ISO with good exposure beats underexposure at lower ISO in my book!

give it try.
