    Images from a pro soccer game

    I was lucky enough to "win" a facebook competition through a local photo store to go and shoot a Real Salt Lake game. Pixels, Foto and Frame here in Sandy, UT. I got a free ticket to the game, photo credentials and they were also cool enough to let me borrow a Canon 400mm F4L. This was a really cool experience, it kind of made me wish I could do this kind of stuff more often.

    I brought 2 bodies with me. My 5d2 and my T2i. Not ideal by any means but it's what I have currently. I put the 400 on the 5d2 and used my 70-200 F4 on the T2i. It was pretty awkward at first trying to shoot with 2 bodies, especially with one of them having a gigantic honking lens on it but by the end I was feeling pretty comfortable. I setup both bodies to shoot wide open, by the end of the night I had my iso cranked up to 3200 and I was using AI Servo on both. I was actually pretty surprised at how well the AI Servo did for 2 bodies that aren't known for having a great AF system. I definitely missed some shots, but not as many as I thought I would. More FPS would have helped nail some shots too.

    All in all, an awesome experience.

    That's a pretty cool prize to win!

    In that first picture, the dude in blue is going to bite his tongue off one of these days if he keeps doing that.

    It's the camera and the lens. I just get lucky every now and again.
