Texas high school football playoffs are here! The stakes are high and the competition is intense. This was my second year of shooting playoff football and Texas and I can tell you without a doubt playoffs are my favorite time to shoot. Being connected with the team and fans makes it so much more enjoyable. Not to mention there is a huge motive to get great shots and go the extra mile.
This was my first game shooting with my new Nikkor 80-200 f2.8 and I am falling in love with this lens! Its are great lens for a very inexpensive price, I picked mine up on eBay in almost brand new condition for $500. There are a few downsides, the weight and loud focusing noise being the only real issues. Both are not really a big deal if you have a monopod and don't need to shoot in silent. I can not recommend this lens enough for young sports shooters or anyone with a limited budget. Not to mention f2.8 keep their value.
I am anxiously anticipating a great game next week as Sachse gears up for the game against Rockwall. Heres to hoping Sachse makes a deep run and for great photos for me and all of you guys!
