uci soccer + 5d mark II…missing my D3
Throughout this week I have been switching cameras every couple days. I’ve been shooting with a Canon 5D MKII for a video project that I’ve been working on. When it came time to shoot my soccer assignment I forgot that I had lent my D3 to a friend. I figured that shooting soccer with the 5D would be nice, and it was…it just wasn’t as nice as shooting with a D3 and a 300mm prime.
However, the colors on that camera are amazing and photos were sharp. Nothing to complain about.
Pumped up? I would have to say yes.
UC Irvine’s Amani Walker usually makes a photo interesting with acrobatic athleticism.
I was pleased to get the shot below of Amani Walker below sliding for a goal attempt. Its seems rare to get a shot of the player attempting to score a goal while being close enough to get the goalie in the photo. I think it turned out well.
At most times during the game I wished that I had a longer lens. Even when I took this celebration photo below I had wished that I had a longer lens. When I went to edit this photo I realized that it is also a good dejection photo that shows the losing team in the background.
Less writing, more talking.
