Yeah, how it must be to be on the sidelines of an AB test!

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Yeah, it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. The speed and skill of the players watching from that level was incredible.

Nice action pictures. Missed you moving up to a 1dx any good. 2nd shot for me, just one little niggle i would perhaps just got rid of the foot on the right of the picture.

Something a little different. I have been going back through my archives as part of my annual clean up/archive/review. I like to remind myself just how bad I was when I started photography. I was shooting Rugby at low shutter speed due to too low ISO and too small Aperture - it's a wonder I ever got a single keeper.

During the process I realised that not only has my technique improved but my eye has too. By that I mean my ability to look at an image and work out what is good about it. As a fun exercise I took the images from one early match, deleted an awful lot of really awful ones and then set out to take the better ones and try to do something.... anything with them.

Maybe one of them could be the cover for a Mills & Boon "Rugby Romance" pulp novel? ;)

Thanks,
I recently started shooting for a local paper and as a result actually started looking at the images that get published on the sports pages of various papers. They generally go for less of a tableau (several players interacting) and focus in on just one or two individuals so that is the style I am working on at the moment....

I was at the inaugural Canada West Athletics (western Canada universities) rugby 7s tournament this last weekend. Wow, pretty exciting and wide open.

Great set of shots. I think 3 and 7 are my favourites as they have the greatest feeling on motion/action, but all good shots.

#1 needs to go in the "this is gonna hurt" thread :-)
