Cal State Long Beach Men's Volleyball vs UC Irvine

I am so behind and not keeping up on my blog posts.

A couple of weeks ago I was asked to cover the Cal State Long Men's Volleyball vs UC Irvine game.  Its been quite some time since the last time I shoot a volleyball game and I did feel a bit sluggish in my shots.  I was very limited on where I could position myself so I just moved around from the side, to the end of the court, then I moved up into the stands for a few shots.

In the end I was happy with what I got, but know I need to shoot more variety in my sports, but until I can get a camera upgrade shooting indoors is still something I'm going to avoid if possible.  Only for the reason I don't want to give bad shots to the paper.

For this game I used my Canon Mark IIn along with my Canon 70-200 f/2.8 L IS lens.  Please enjoy my shots.

Poly Boys Varsity Soccer vs Cabillo

I'm quite a bit behind here and haven't posted in some time, so about two weeks ago I was asked to cover the varsity Poly boys soccer game against Cabrillo at Poly High.

This was a very close game and a fun to shoot.  I am happy with what I ended up with, but felt I didn't do as good as I should have, but that is just me.

The game was tied 1-1 during the last few minutes when Cabrillo made an attempt on Poly's goal.  I was able to get the shot just as it was called a non-goal due to off sides.  You can see in the shot (last shot) that the ref was blowing his whistle calling hte foul.  Not the best angle, but a good shot.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the shots.
