Run Hard

I took this today at the Beavers Game where I assisted for my boss. I also want to thank Tom Boyd for letting me use his 300mm f2.8 to shoot the game it was a blast!


This was an awesome run for a first down

    this is a SICK lens you are a link to show me which one it is?
  • Nick Nieto 7y

    It was sick… I recommend using a monopod if you can though. Since I wasn't expecting to use this sucker I didn't have one and I hand held the entire game and my back is killing me
  • Blake 7y wonder it's such a sick better get amazing images for $4,000....great shot here though. thanks for sharing!

    I've been ingrained with the theory that its not the equipment but the photographer… but yeah, it sure makes your life easier using good glass. ;-)

    Fantastic focus!
    Good shot!

    Nick...did you find that the 300 2.8 was tough to work with because of the lack of zoom capabilities? This was really taken with a Digital Rebel?!?!
  • Nick Nieto 6y

    no not really… I love prime lenses so it didn't bother me too much. Just had to work with the moments and plays as they came to us.

    Yes it was a Rebel XT… soon to replaced… with what I'm really not sure… either a 5d Mk II or possibly a D700 not sure yet…any thoughts
  • Blake 6y

    Well...I can only comment on what I have...and that is the 40D and the 5D...I can say that full frame 5D blows my old stuff away and has taken my game to the next level. Can't go wrong with that Mark II
