First game using my new Canon Rebel EOS XT. Thanks to heywoode for getting me hooked up.

There may be more to come. I took about 400 frames, these are *some* of my favorites.

Sorry Peck and BillS, none of Danny's block. The people in front of me were too tall.

This was right after Jack got fouled...hard. It was really pointless for contact that hard.

I did. Like I said, I took about 400 shots. I selected to upload more on PhotoBucket, but for some reason it only took 14 of them. I may post more later.

Boy do I have a surprise for you coming. It involves an XSi and stalker instincts normally only displayed by MRat.


edit - check the file size option when uploading to PBucket, that might have limited how many you can send at one time. I spend more time resizing and cropping post-game than uploading and linking. Sucks because at a certain size PBucket used to undo my rotates for photos I shot sideways.

But it's still a pretty kick butt site for photo sharing.

Yeah, that's what it was.

I like Photobucket over Flickr because I can upload more photos without paying for it.

I have PB shrink the photos (Obviously).

What would you call Von Wafer's haircut? Is it a fade or faux hawk?

Either way, Danny shows that he don't tolerate it.

Wafer definitely is rocking the faux hawk ala Harrington, though Harrington's was more true hawk.

Seth, you've got me beat.

heywoode was right, the club level is the best for photos. And I thought row 5 would work!

Nice shots, Seth. Great shots of Danny in there...

I stalked Dukie too, see my thread for the three best shots.

Yes, I believe the club level, midcourt to be the best spot in the building for photos. I don't have the lighting capability to make on the floor the best spot, and sitting in the first dozen rows you are subjected to the seats being able to wiggle and shake, and you have to shoot over lots of obstructions. The balcony works decently, if you've got at least 300mm of zoom to work with, but you gotta hold really steady at that range and zoom to get any clarity.

If I ever get season tix, they will be club level. I know I'm spoiled, because I won't even waste the trip to Indy for balcony seats, even if they're free...Yeah, I know....

I need to take a monopod or get an IS lens. But what can I say, I got the 70-200 f2.8 at Roberts for 600, half off, so hard to complain.

I shoot in my 2nd row seat all the time, but it's tricky as you say. Freaking Sign Guy Matt is sometimes a problem, though my mini plan is midweeks so I haven't seen him much. He was there last night but obviously I was up in the club.

BTW, the first row was empty in my section. Pretty sad. These were some of the Blue Friday purchases. I spent more on food/beer than the seats. It was such a fun time and club is as comfortable as you could ask for.

This is the first time I've spotted Duke, just by chance. I assume those are your regular seats Duke but I haven't noticed you when I was down there.

They don't give you any crap taking that 70-200 f/2.8 in? Great price, btw...Is it the beige colored lens? They still look at my black 75-300 sideways sometimes; can't imagine how much grief I'd get with that big ole 70-200! I bet it is heavy holding that big thing up all the time. (TWSS)

I got a good monopod for Christmas last year, and it worked out great for the Indy 500....

One thing you can't do in the club is get shots like these

No, it's the black one. Sorry, it's 80-200. I forgot. 600 down from 1200, used, and a very tiny nick on it but I've yet to really notice an effect on any photos.

I usually don't get grief but every now and then. During the Pistons playoffs in Reggie's last year a security guy walked over and told me I couldn't use a telephoto lens (this after using it in the same spot for the entire Boston series and the first couple of DET games). A few times at security they've looked it over but usually they ask about video capability.

When I first got my original Rebel I didn't even know it might be an issue, and my guess is ignorance goes a long way. Now my attitude is more like "hey, I'm willing to actually be here and it sure couldn't hurt for people to see some photos and maybe take an interest in the team". :D



Duke - just keep shooting. 400 shots should be the norm, as long as you have the guts to delete that down to 100-150 at least. For every decent shot I take 8 crap at least. I go to spring training and shoot all day, I'll focus on a specific infielder just waiting to get that ground ball play in action or whatever, and damn if it doesn't happen just when I look away or give up.

For example, I had been shooting right before Danny got that final block but then my wife asked me a question and I was talking to her as it happened. Damn you woman! :censored::-p

Pacers.com has a good photo of Danny's block.

That's just what I look like after I let the green dye wash out and I take the face paint off. It adds several pounds.
