Was trying to get Action Shots ... how did I do ?
Canon 5DII and Canon 135mm


Running away from the pack .. I liked the expressions of the guys in black chasing him.

Giving it his all .... might crop out 2 players on right

I dig the action you caught.
I think if you got in a tighter they would really isolate the players. And getting down on your knees will make the players look bigger and more imposing.
"Turning on the after burners" is my fave of the bunch. IMHO, if you want to keep it horizontal, crop in tighter putting the ball carrier in the left third of the frame. But that's just me. :)

Agree shoot tight and try to fill the frame. I think it's ok to leave other players in especially if they add context to the action. Good start though.

Many thanks .... when shooting with a 135mm it is hard to fill the frame so will crop away.

I love finding Club/kids rugby photos on the here, the second one is awesome, maybe try a tighter crop and see what that looks like.
