Sorry for the late post, gang. I shot the Thursday night game last night and got home after 1:30 am and I was beat! Anyway, I’ve been meaning to post some pics from some of the games I’ve been shooting, but I’ve been shooting so sporadically (the Bucs have been on the road so much), but I’ve finally got a chance to share some of the my favorites.
After that long drought, now I’ve got three games in one week (Last Sunday’s Bucs vs. Raiders, last night’s Bucs vs. Falcons and this Sunday’s Dolphins vs. Jets down in Miami).
Today I’m sharing some from the Bucs vs. Falcons (last night); Vols vs. Alabama College game, plus Bucs vs. Raiders. I’ll post my gear and settings at the end.
Bucs vs. Falcons
Raymond James Stadium, Tampa (Bucs are in their red “Color Rush” uniforms for Thursday night)
Bucs vs. Raiders
Raymond James Stadium, Tampa
Tennessee Vols vs. Alabama Crimson Tide
Shot in Tennessee with the awesome Vols crew, led by Donald Page (you’ll see him in the gallery with the sunglasses).
> Main Body: Canon EOS 1Dx with a Canon 400mm f/2.8 lens on a Gitzo monopod
> 2nd Body: Canon EOS 1Dx with a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens
> Black Rapid Strap for 2nd body.
> Accessories as shown below.
Note: For the Vols game, I also used a 14mm super wide angle lens mounted on the end of the Monopod and triggered using a PocketWizard Plus III
Aperture: f/2.8 (never changes)
Shutter Speed: 1/1000 of a second minimum (I use Auto ISO with the minimum shutter speed set to 1/1000)
ISO: Varies but it’s chosen automatically because I use Auto ISO
Hope you found that helpful.
OK, I’m off to shoot the Dolphins. Hoping to be able to set up a remote camera for the player intros, and I’ll be taking some shots of the stadium up with with it empty before they open the stadium to the public.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
P.S. Photographers in Las Vegas — I’m there with my Shoot Like a Pro: Reloaded seminar in just a couple of weeks. Come on out and spend the day with me. 🙂
It’s about time. I wish you would post your sports photos on instagram, even if it means setting up a 2nd account. I’m still looking forward to you coming to shoot a game in Houston sometime.
You are getting better. The referee is almost in focus.
Can you believe South Carolina beat Tennessee!! SC’s new QB Bentley grew up at The Flounder (my restaurant), his whole family has been good friends for years. I am a little worried about them playing our Tigers!!
