    I'm a photojournalist for my school. This was part of an assignment I had to shoot on the girls soccer team. I love this photo.

    Great shot! I love their hands.

    I'm curious, what type of camera and film did you use for this shot - very nice.

    well its been a while, but all of a sudden I feel like getting back into the groove of critiquing photos.


    #1 Great composition, tonal ranges are great, wonderful whites and blacks. The only problem I have with it is it is a little soft. Don't get me wrong tho, I think the shutter speed was just a little too slow (like one stop or two) The only place its a serious problem w/ me is the ball.

    2nd post #1- great shot I really like this it a lot. I think if the shot had been taken a split second earlier and the guy on the right wasn't on in the frame it would have been a wonderful shot. so the ball would be more visible.

    #2 all i have to say is a little tighter crop

    #3 visually I'd say it is a little too busy and the two girls are sort of so tied up its hard to tell them apart.

    I really enjoy these shots and you have incredibly good focus for some difficuly quick action shots and you're zoomed in pretty far. Great jobs and I can't wait to see more.

    Thanks alot. I like it when people critique my photos. I assure you, i was at the absolute fastest shutter speed possible. But i was using a 300 f/5.6 so I was pretty limited. Of course we can't all afford a 300 f/2.8 now can we? I agree with your critiques with the exeption of the one on photo #3. What I like the most about that picture is how tied up the girls are in one another. I don't know, but my editor agreed with me and ghosted it to a full page behind the article.

    I shot up 4 rolls of Fujifilm NPZ 800 at a basketball game and dance on friday night, i'll have those back from the developer on monday. I opted to use a 50/1.8 at the game and dance because I could get so close, and the 50/1.8 is one of my favorite lenses. I'll try and get those posted up ASAP.
