Lakewood Freshmen Football vs Burbank

Week 9

Lakewood Freshmen vs Burbank

This has been an odd year with various schools not having enough players to run a JV team.  Not sure if this is an issue with other schools, but it has affected Long Beach Schools.  In either case both the freshmen and JV games were played at Lakewood, but since Compton, which was the scheduled league game, didn't have a freshmen team, Burbank came down to play.

Gear - Canon 1DX / Canon 300 f/2.8L IS

Below are my favorites from the game.

Lakewood Varsity Football vs Wilson

Week 8

Lakewood Varsity Football vs Wilson

This was one game to watch.  A lot of action and very close to the bitter end, which went into overtime.

Week 8

Lakewood Freshmen vs Wilson

This was a double header with the JV playing after this game and because of that they pretty much had a running clock from the beginning.  Although Its nice to have a quick game, it gives me less time to capture the action I like to capture.

Millikan Varsity Football vs Compton

Week - 7

Millikan Varsity vs Compton

Lakewood High, the school I normally cover had a buy this week, so I was asked to cover the Millikan vs Compton game.

As lighting goes, the lights at Millikan were terrible.  I had to push my ISO up to 16,000 and lower my shutter to 1/640 to get a good exposure.  Not really too worried as the Canon 1DX handles noise very well, just not a fan of going that high, but we do what we can to get the shot.
