#263646 I've been using a brand new Leica!

Posted by fotofill on 08 January 2020 - 04:09 AM

I used to hold the stick. I carried a machete and a walkie talkie. We used a David White transit.

I am over needing a micro lens from Nikon. But, Santa left a 1.4 TC for my use. That was nice of him.

There are so many HS basketball tournaments going on. I was told that there is a maximum number of games teams can play, but tournament games do not count. My boss owns eleven papers so I get to shoot a lot of those games. Then I get to process all the games, then post them to a couple of places. Happy New Year everyone.

Basketball is a non-contact sport, right?

#263359 The Phantom Hand blocks a kick

Posted by fotofill on 08 December 2019 - 03:49 PM

It's my practice to shoot punts and kicks because sometimes this happens.

I knew this player sells out for extra point tries.  (I have shot him before. I asked him about it at a previous game. He said, "That is my specialty."

This is a state championship game. I shot the spot where the block could happen. It all came together.

#263314 Flash or no flash?

Posted by fotofill on 03 December 2019 - 05:28 PM

It looks just fine. You gotta us flash on Christmas parades. I just set camera at about 800 ISO and turn the flash down to 1/25th power and go at it. If they all look as good as this, I am happy. (I do not like shooting parades day or night) One of my parades I stand with my back to a gas station and use their lights to fill in the street.

#263177 Fumble at goal line

Posted by fotofill on 19 November 2019 - 12:43 AM

Most HS football fields have two light standards per side of field. Over the years I have learned to bump up the EV and do one stop over, once the game heads into end zone area. Lights at the end of sports fields would be a welcomed by shooter. Probably hated by receivers. 

D5, 70-200 at 200, F4, ISO 8000, shutter priority, and +1 stop

OK... Looking at Sigma. I don't think I will use it enough to get a new Nikon G.
