So sports photography is not really my thing, but I think its good to be versatile. I went to shoot tennis yesterday and was disapointed with what I shot. Today I went out to the courts with a purpose. I wanted to stop that dang little yellow fuzzy ball enough to read the text on it. In technical terms I had to shoot at 1/8000 shutter f/4 and ISO 500. While I usually love shooting at f/2.8, I realized that it only made it harder to capture the ball within that small depth of field.
I think I will call it a success.
Edit: Just realized the images are too sized to small on the blog to actually read the text on the balls. Will try and put up a zoomed in version later.
