Since my last HS football game i've been in front of 70,000 screaming fans photographing The University of Iowa. Maybe it's because i actually played for this team (i don't think that's it) but i really enjoy the high school games more.
This was the first game on this field since they renovated it. They put in (among other things) new lights. This went from the worst field i've ever shot to litterally the best i think. I was shooting at ISO 1600 f/2.8 1/400. My flash was malfunctioning so if it wasn't i probably would have shot at 1/500 and used the flash to fill in the shadows on the face. All in all i'm happy with these considering its been so long and i've only got a 200mm lens but i'm always open to input.

Sometimes you gotta turn away from the action to get the action...**
