23 days to go

More adventures from the soccer pitch in the dark. This one  is slightly , ever so slightly sepia toned, giving it a lift in my humble opinion.

This was shot with the lens poking through the goal net, and again no effective autofocus – this was just a guess. The goalkeeper’s left calf is sharp, but the depth of field focus fall-off from shooting at f1.4, plus his body motion – this was shot at 1/50 @ 1250 ISO – means yet again there is some softness affecting his upper body.

Night shooting is not easy. There are many pitfalls, as I keep finding out. I guess the only way go get it sorted is take more shots and analyse what goes wrong – or better still when it goes right.

Apologies if you have been following my blog with the lack of recent posts – I’m still busy, with photography taking a rather back seat at present, however I will fix this situation shortly.
