  1. I'm still a newbie to this forum and sports photography in general but I thought
    I'd get this one started for this weekend... These are all from this afternoons
    U of South Florida-Indiana State baseball game... This is only the 2nd baseball
    game I've ever shot (first was Friday nights game under the lights- not so good
    for me).

  6. The Stowe Derby XC (mostly) racers start almost at the top of the peak on the left and travel about 20k to the finish in the center of town. 6k is descending an alpine ski trail. Pretty fun race.

  13. Chris,

    No problem... These were all made with a Nikon D300. The first and 5th image were with the 300mm f4 AF-S + 1.7x TC. The rest were with a 80-200mm f2.8 AF-S + 1.7x TC. Shot in A-mode, aperture at f6.3 or f7.1. ISO varied between 400 and 640 (it was somewhat overcast with the sun was popping in and out, when it was sunny would drop to 400, when sun went back behind the clouds would bump up to 500 or 640 to keep shutter speed around 1/1000 or faster). I was set up directly behind first base right next to the dugout. Used a monopod when using the 300mm + 1.7x TC, handheld when using the other lens.
     
  14. It's not sports but it was cold. In the wilds of eastern Oregon:

  15. This picture is definitely not sports, but is is from a competition. I did not shoot this
    weekend because I "coach" my schools Science Bowl team and we had a regional
    competition on Saturday. The kids here won the regional and have earned a trip to
    Washington D.C. for the national competiton. As far as sports, the kid with the yellow shirt
    has earned a tennis scholarship to an NAIA college and the young lady will be the only
    graduate in her class to play three sports all 4 years of high school. I wanted to crow a bit,
    thank you. If this in not appropriate, please remove.
     
  16. I shot some rugby this weekend in DC.
     
  17. Soccer in the Dome with a D3 and Sigma 50-500. Converted to bw and cutline for local paper.
