The Sports Shot

For the past  couple of years  I’ve been devoted mostly to sports photography. I keep telling myself that I need to drag my butt out of bed and get a good sunrise picture again, but I never manage it. I still hold out  hope though.

But to be honest I’m having loads of fun with the sports photography. I had to gulp early in football season when my beloved 70D decided that 250,000 exposures was enough and gave me its last. But I replaced it with an 80D and couldn’t be happier, especially with “flicker mode.” With my old camera shooting in burst mode under football and basketball lights, and the color balance was all over the place because of the way the venue’s lighting system “flickered.” The 80D compensates for that, and for the kind of photography I’m doing now this feature alone with worth the full purchase price.

I don’t often do candid portraits, but the light coming into the dugout was amazing for this player.

Track and Field

Benton Community Invitation Track 2015-5533I promise I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth. I’m still here and still doing photography, but my¬†service is, surprisingly enough to me, getting somewhat in demand and I’m struggling to find time to take pictures just for me and my blog. Here’s a kind of hybrid¬†– something I got at a recent high school track meet but which I was very please with. I warped the image somewhat by applying a lens profile that was decidedly different than the lest I was shooting with.
