C & C

The field at this stadium is laid out east-west rather than the tradition north-south. Therefore, all the runners/hurdlers head east toward the finish line and that means shooting into the sun.

Fantastic shots Phil! When shooting hurdles, do you pre-focus on the hurdle and then time your shot?

No.

I've done that technique on the high jump before (pre-focus on the middle of the bar) because the jumpers often approach from the side where I can't track them cleanly. Sometimes I photograph high jump from the approach side and other times from the landing side and the landing side tracking is usually tougher because of obstacles.
I'll observe the competitors in warm ups and try to determine which of the available vantage points (approach or landing, left or right) will give me the best view of the face . I shoot faces of people doing athletic things.

At short focal lengths, there is enough dof to make this work since the jumper must always end up at the bar. If I'm low (sitting on the ground) and the jumper is viewed against the sky, and there is plenty of light, then I can use a smaller aperture for extra dof.

This pole vault shot was pre-focused on the bar. There were running events on the track (where I was located) at the same time as the vault was happening outside the fence surrounding the stadium. I just turned my 400 away from the track, boosted ISO, set the aperture at f/8.0, pre-focused on the bar (back button pre-focus), and fired away. Ample dof for sharpness and no need for bokeh against the sky. I would have preferred to shoot closer with a 70-200 and track the athlete, but I couldn't be in two places at the same time. Because of spectators between me and the pole vault run, I couldn't even see the vaulter during his approach. When the crowd started to react to the jump, I just shot a burst as he ascended to the bar.

On the hurdle events, I wanted a very shallow dof to blur out a distracting background, so I shot those at f/3.2 and 400mm to get tight. They were tracked because of the need for exact focus and because I was tracking the hurdlers through the last two hurdles. The 1D X took care of the tracking. Case 1 with the details set to +1 on accelerate/decelerate tracking because hurdlers decelerate as they jump.

The hurdles at this track is another case where it requires +exposure compensation because it is back lit. Once the appropriate setting is nailed down, it can be set in manual to avoid any exposure variability due to color of the uniform.

I hate the light at this venue and clouds came rolling in around 7pm making it dark way too early. You just have to do the best you can sometimes.

great shots. I had to double check the title to make sure this was hs but at the same time their form makes them seem younger.

Phil

Great shots and great insight into the setup.

Our track is also east west, and this time of year the sun is aligned perfectly with the start / finish line. Tough stuff!

Great set Phil, though the guy in #8 looks WAY too relaxed. :)

And BTW, your daughter is definitely a well-rounded athlete!

And just a bit crazy. Lift weights during the week, win the 100 on Friday, go to Prom on Saturday...

I've coached Jess and the girls of her class in 5th and 6th grade and then started my sports photography when they began 7th. In about 6 weeks these 12th graders will graduate and it will all be over. There will be a few tears for me when the state track meet ends it all on May 25. Its been a great, fun ride. I care a lot about those former kids who are now women.

I will continue to shoot sports for the monthly magazine I shoot for now. However, I'm ready for a new challenge and the thought of having a studio to work on portrait photography interests me a lot. For me, its all about the learning. Merely repeating the same sports images would bore me to death. A new photography discipline with a new appreciation for light it all its forms is calling my creative needs and desires. Who knows how that plays out... ... ...
