It's amazing that they could even see the ball. I don't think the people in the stands saw anything. I was surprised that many shots from this game sold.

1/400, f/2.8, ISO 1000, 195mm (40D, 70-200 f/2.8 L)

Man that is some thick fog! Amazing you got any shots in that stuff at all. What time of day was the game at?

You're surprised these shots sold???

Heck, these are great and the pea soup thick fog provides a sereal effect that captured very well!

Nice job!

Flying photog. It was like that.

Nicmo, It was a night game. Looking through the lens was like watching a scene in an old war movie. All you could see of the score board was the lit up numbers and other than that, I don't think the people in the stands saw anything.
Thanks for the comments.


Here are the rest if interested.

Thanks, I jsut felt that the parents would only want sharp clear shots. Personally I like these.

Wow I am impressed at night and in fog at only ISO 1000. I'm suprised you can see anything in these pics. Good Job!

Mike,

Perused your website and I'm just curious: Are you doing your own order fulfilment via your own server or is this a commercial fulfillment site? I'm looking to be able to have some of my own work available for purchase and I'm trying to figure out how best to go about it.

Feel free to PM me if you would like.

Thanks...

I thought the same Aaron. That 40D could have done well at 1600 or even 3200. Since I assume flash was not an option due to the reflection from the fog, jacking the ISO might have helped. Regardless, very nicely done. I have on ly shot in fog once and hope that is the last time. You did well here. Congrats on the shots and sales.

These are good shots.

I think the fog adds something to the action (even though I'm sure it was a pain to shoot and play a game in). I'm not surprised you had some orders. I know I'd buy some copies.

Thanks for the comments. I think that they had a harder time playing than I had shooting. A lot of shots have mud flying in them and on more than one occasion a time out was called so the mud could be scrapped from the bottom of the cleats.

Man I used to love those games...still remember going down to the field the next day and from the 40yd line to the other 40yd line was pure dirt, the rest of the field was nice and green since neither team could move much farther. I think we won that game 2-0, yes 2-0 in a football game. Good times, good times.

These are the games that you tackle everyone, just in case they might have the ball.

That score was 35-36 and tonight they faced off again in the Semi Finals, My team goes onto the Championship on Saturday. Overall I wasn't happy with the shots I took tonight. Can you reccomend an external power supply for a 580EX. I need that faster recycle time.:(

So now instead of tackling everyone (just in case they have the ball,) you just shoot them all.:)

Glad you didn't "fix" these. They capture the moment just right - as it really was. Nicely done on these ones.
