Would like some input

I've been holding onto these for a while and were pics I took last summer at a local tournament.

I'm just looking for input on them. Things that could be improved on. Things that can change as far as exposure, etc.

Any criticism, not cynicism, is appreciated.











and I know this one has a lot to improve on, but that's mainly timing and fitting feet in in my opinion.

Not a single one is shot from the front of the player.. 1 and 5 are from the side, the rest are from the back. work on that for next time.

everything is in focus, everything seems properly exposed.

This.

I'm going to assume you used your strongest images from the set with the advice that follows.

Work on planning out your shots a bit more. With the multi-point games you're able to setup off the break for action rich images instead of taking pictures of people in bunkers and hoping to be in the right place. It's always better to be out in front of the action. Dives and slides shot from behind, unless at a ridiculously low and wide angle are dull.

Also, for your OTB shot be slightly forward of the players. The extra frame space that is currently filled by netting should be used to establish leading action (i.e. more space for the moving object to move into). Also, WAY too much head room.

The exposure seems fine and the images are fairly sharp with the sizes you've linked but without pixel peeping I can't really say for certain.

All of the information above is based on experience so take it for what it's worth.

I'm going to disagree with others and say that they could use another half stop of exposure, and some post work as well as they're all pretty flat.

I'm not sure what you're trying to show in #4, I would scrap that. Like others said get in front of people, get low, show action. Keep shooting

Yeah. 4 was the best break pic i could spot in the folder with all my "new camera pics ".

On a sidenote: they only allowed photigraphers which had a deal with he field inside the net during play. This was taken from a hole in the net : P

I'm going to agree with the half stop. (Depending on your experience level) If you're worried about exposure, put it into into Aperture-priority (Av on Canons, A on Nikons) and put the aperture wide open.

Hmm, an idea.

I'll try that out next time I'm at the field with a cam.

(oi vey... the wait begins)
