    And just like that they season is over. On to indoor sports (and different lighting challenges) now.

    1) Stretching out.

    2) Watch the ball.

    3) Is this a fumble or not???

    I will say getting to shoot on Saturday afternoon is nice compared to the dark of Friday night lights.

    On #3, I have the frame before this one, this one and one more with the knee either down or just barely above the turf. The ball was out in the third image and in the first he has it securely under his arm. The officials called him down and therefore no fumble.

    I looked at the photos before reading your post and I wondered if he dropped the ball in #3. Really nice set from you again.

    Beautiful images.

    Always think it’s funny when I have photo evidence to prove that the officials got it wrong.

    Thank you. I'm glad you looked first, that was my intent to see who would catch on to that.

    Thank you, I've been trying to put in the work this season.

    Thank you. I captured at least 5 plays this season where the wrong call was made. I even have one from this game where the official called face mask but the player only has the jersey at the collar.

    Thank you.

    Thank you.

    Great shots, as always, Ron!

    I'm surprised to hear the season is over already. Around here, the biggest rivalry game for most teams is on Thanksgiving morning, and then the three rounds of the playoffs start next week. They won't play the state championship games until the middle of December. In fact, most of the multi-sport athletes will be late to their winter sports.

    Thanks. We start our 10 week season in September and then for the top two classes it is a 3 week play-off with a bye between the semi's and the finals. All of the smaller classes will go until Dec 8th or Dec 15th.

    I like #1 and #2. GREAT shots.

    Here the varsity football play at night, under lights. So low light shooting.
    How I would love to shoot varsity during the day, so I don't have to crank up the ISO level. And have to deal with the shadows from the field lights, where you are lucky to see the face.

    I just got a 35mm f/1.8, for the indoor sports, and it made a BIG difference in image quality over my 18-140 GP zoom.
    I am now shooting at 1/1000 sec, f/2, ISO 3200.
    The old rule still works, "FAST glass for indoor sports."
    BTW, I am shooting on the floor of the gym, not in the bleachers.

    Thank you. Yes, most of our HS season is on Thursday or Friday night on fields that aren't lite great. This was a play-off semi-final game played on a Saturday afternoon. There was a second game played there after this one but I did not stay.

    I have been using a 24-70 f/2.8 or an 85 f/1.8 for shooting indoors for basketball. You are right, fast glass is key for any of it.

    The only problem with FAST glass, is that it is HEAVY. At least for this old man.
    I have to pass on the f/2.8 lens and get the lighter f/4 lens.
    It hurts to have to give up that extra stop of light, in low light.
