    So the day starts off with 2 periods of pep rallys (photos to be posted later) and then moves on to a night of football. This was my first football shoot and it was hard. My school dosn't have lights (I know crazy) but they wanted it to be a night game (as it should) so the school rented these portable lights. Not only did thet do a horrible job of lighting the field the were pretty low so I was looking right into them. There was also a 2 stop difference between these hot spots. So there were only certain places and angle I vould get a shot.

    I started off with my 28-90 and iso 1600 but the 5.6 wasn't cutting so I shot most of the game with my 50mm around 2.2. (A little intimidating when theres a guy next to me with a 5D and some gigantic L Series lens sticking out a foot.) I tried to keep my shutter up as much as I could but most of the time I was stuck between 60 and 125 But it was loads of fun still running up and down the sidelines my newly purchased monopod I'm sure saved my shoulders.

    Thank you for looking and comments and critique is more than appreciated.
