A few things I learned during the shoot?
a | I need a telephoto lens - bad. 135mm ain't gonna cut it. (Any donors will be loved and adored by me until their very last day.)
b | It is extremely hard to get a good action shot without the subject being partially blurry (in a bad way, that it). Gah.
and c | I might possibly be color blind when behind a lens.
Why do I say that? Well, you see, our team is blue. The opposing team is green. But? Looking back, I seem to have a lot of photos focused on players in green. Like these....
Whoops. Not a blue player in focus. Um, my bad! But green is a pretty color, don't you think? ;)
With all that I've learned in mind, I'm hoping to make it to another game before the season ends so that I can practice shooting them a bit more. As I proved in Thursday's post, there are some seriously awesome soccer players on that team. ;) (Translation: Everyone on the team is a heck of a lot better at soccer than yours truly. Which, sadly, isn't too much of a complement.)
Oh, and I had to throw these few shots in as well...
Some supportive siblings paying zero attention to the game and playing...was it Polly Pockets? I forget.
I am led to think that this little friend of mine was inspired by my taking pictures. At any rate, he got out his mom's cell phone and decided to take a few action shots of his own. Look at him go!
