They Just Did It

Note: exif data is incomplete due to a bug in Topaz DeNoise plug in processing.

This is ISO 5000, 1/200 second, at f/1.4.

 

I was privileged to be invited to photograph a young men's flag football league run as a ministry in north Philadelphia in the Kensington section.

 

As I anticipated, the action shots are not what I'd like them to be. I'm not really shooting a serious sports kit at all -- but even if I was it got DARK and even at f/1.8 the ISO requirements ranged from 3200 to 12800 as the night advanced. It was difficult under the poor lighting to even get a 1/320 of a second speed later in the night as it got totally dark except for the lights on the field.

 

This shot is with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the Panasonic/Leica DG 25mm f/1.4 lens.
