While it is still mid-July, I am starting to get the itch. No, not the type of itch you treat with some sort of cream, the sports photography itch. While I took photos at graduation and portraits at an area dance studio, I enjoy sports photography the most. The sights, the sounds, the emotions, the smell (not of the ball players, but the FFA bbq)...just can't be beat.
This year, I am particularly excited due to the lens I picked up last spring and also a new camera I purchased over the summer. One of the features of this camera is anti-flicker technology to help combat the changing color of older lights used on football fieldd and in some gyms. (Thankfully not at the ZAG!) Here is an example of what the camera sees that you don't while at the game.
These photos were taking just tenth's of seconds from one another, yet look at the color differences between the two. Hopefully, this anti-flicker technology Canon touts will eliminate or at least reduce this craziness. This camera also has higher ISO, or light sensitivity, settings, to hopefully get better pictures in the end zones, when the stadium lights are very dim.
How many days until September 4?
