As a newbie & parnet shooting H.S. Sports for the of few of the coaches i got to know, with a canon xsi & 70-200 f/2.8 L series. I am learning as i go and have been doing it for about a year & a half . I don't charge these guys , as they give the photos out (a 24 by 24) to each kid on the team at the end of the season. I make a year end video with them for awards night.
So as i have been traveling with the events i would seek out tips from time to time from the press guys and other alleged pros taking shots , often only to get blown off to the point i stop asking. WEll to my surprise at the N.Y. H.S. Lacrosse playoffs in Long Island Yesterday A photograher from well regarded Maxpreps Mr. Ray Nelson comes up to me and offered a suggestion, I explained the above and he could not have been more pleasant and helpful. Ray did check up on me as the game went on . Thank you Ray Nelson you have restored my faith and where very helpful.
Yes my pictures did improve
