My new camera came in from Canon on Friday. One of the advantages of the new machine is the gain in low light shooting situations, and what is lower light that Friday Night Lights? Not much, the blend of action stopping shutter speed and funky tungsen/halogen/flourescent lighting with reflective green surfaces and black uniforms? Yeah pressure cooker for new camera.
The Matadors were playing host to rival San Marcos on Friday, and the game started out with the strangest play. A brisk north wind carried the opening squib kick bouncing around and over the Matador players arms and heads, ending up in the end zone where San Marcos recovered for a touchdown without any time expiring off the clock. 7-0 San Marcos.
That touchdown proved to be the only score of the night for the Rattlers, as the Matador defense and offense provided the final tally of 35-7.
The game also marked the first time where my mother, sisters and I had all attended in a long while. Good to see everyone that we ran into, Shane, Chelsea, Noel and Denise, Mitch, the Kiels, you know who you are…
Most of these were photographed at iso 3200 to 6400 iso, and they proved to be quite usable! I am thrilled with the early returns of this camera. The viewfinder is amazing to look through (small thing, big difference), the high iso ability opens up new worlds of lighting, and the menu’s are just like my 50D so no learning curve. Excellent!
And finally, GO MATS!
