I was aggravated for most of this game. I enjoyed the improved play in the 3rd quarter before the wheels fell off again, and I definitely enjoyed the end of game spurt that won it for us. All in all, a decent game with some Pacers players contributing well....Not bad for four dollars a ticket!

If this guy was sitting in front of me, that hat wouldn't last five minutes. And I don't mean five minutes of game time, I mean FIVE MINUTES...I didn't see whether he actually wore it during the game, but given his willingness to advertise on the hat, I would guess that he planned on wearing it the whole game...

It's good to be the King...uh-huh...

I got to thinking about it, and that would be a creepy walk all the way up to the rapelling stations wearing those costumes....

About two seconds after I took this frame, the lights went out....I don't know if they mistimed it, but I'm glad I got the shot!

Yep...

Is this two fouls committed simultaneously???!! This is the frame right after the jump ball shot, so I can only assume that Michael Redd shoulda been saddled with two early fouls...I mean EARLY fouls....That has to be about 15 seconds into the game...

In case you wondered, Jackson blew this....

Four Pacers waiting to collapse if he drives, and Foster still lays off of him...

...resulting in this wide open jumper for an easy two points!!

I would like to take this slingshot ride, but I think it would take more than two guys manning the pull cables!

This is another fine example of the pro photogs screwing my shot up with their strobes....

Classic example of what JO does wrong....

A good example of JT's defensive intensity....they had made a good play, and Tinsley just lost the handle on the ball and dove at it as it skidded out of bounds and back to the Bucks....

During the game, JO noticed that there were some unoccupied seats, so he blew a head gasket and waded into the crowd with fists flying....I think somebody told him to do something to their balls?? Not sure though....

Sadly, Runi almost got there...

BEYOOOTCH!!!

Thanks Heywoode. Those shots are nice. I've wondered before just what brand or model of camera you (and some other posters) use to get those nice pics. Care to share any info?

I use a Canon Digital Rebel XT with a f/4-5.6 75-300mm Canon lens....Nothing else....

I get decent shots from the club level or the balcony, but that lens is way too tight for lower bowl seats....If I happen to luck into LL tickets, I use a Sigma fixed 24mm f/2.8 and a Canon f/4-5.6 17-85mm lens...

I sat in Row 1 of Section 223 in the balcony for all of these shots...Obviously the ones during warmups were taken from the first 15 rows or so an hour before the game...It is more difficult than it might seem to get good clean backgrounds when shooting. That is what I struggle with the most it seems...

I will be posting a few Pacemate shots in the Shout Box....That will be my new protocol, as I think the main forum isn't really the proper place for Pacemate shots!

Decent action stoppage with a 4-5.6, assuming that you are at the 5.6 (300) most of the time.

I sometimes swap on the 55-80 that comes standard and runs 4-5.6 as well and it just doesn't get the light it needs. Of course I put on a 50 fixed that's 1.8 and it blows out with too much (this is due to the nut behind the wheel though, not the lens :) ).



Jack missing that layup sucked. Too bad it's not a problem limited to him (Tins and Foster...well Tins has found it suddenly it seems).

Good comment on the Foster defense. That's one where I think a casual fan would simply say "good defense, tough shot". You have to know your scheme and situations. Then again I think Jeff is a lot weaker away from the rim on both ends (including high screens). Like him below the FT line all the time if possible.


Great job as always Heywoode.

Thanks for the compliments everyone...

Seth,

yes, most of the time I reside just slightly below the full 300mm zoom, so I get aperture settings that are choked for light. At it's widest, the 75-300 can get about half of the court from row 1 of the balcony. I usually shoot with the white balance set to tungsten because auto white balance leaves my shots too yellow. I set the ISO to 800, shoot in Av mode, and hope for the best. Sometimes the photos are a little dim from the balcony, so I've found that overexposing by a stop or two will help compensate, and PhotoShop for post-processing helps also...

You shooting with the 50 f/1.8 is a great idea if you are close to the action, and you can either set to underexpose, or shoot in manual and don't stop down to the full 1.8?? That makes for a pretty narrow focal plane, I'm guessing....I like my Sigma 24mm f/2.8, but it doesn't work well with the Rebel or Rebel XT and I can ONLY shoot with the aperture set to 2.8. Any other setting and the camera gives me an error. I knew this going in before I bought the lens, and I got a decent deal on it, so I bought it anyway...

I would shoot with that 50mm a little higher than the minimum aperture, and still probably have the ISO set to 800 for decent stoppage...
