  • At The Point of Delivery

    On a strict critique basis, your aperture is too small and your shutter speed is too slow. A better image would result if you corrected those two things.

    Sport should be shot with your aperture wide-open so your selection of f2 is good, but you've selected shutter priority and at 1/500th your shutter speed is too slow. Shoot in aperture priority and keep your aperture wide-open. Make sure you get a faster shutter speed by manipulating your ISO.

    Also, if you look at the blades of grass you will see that those a little way behind the player are more in focus than the ones under the player so either you or your autofocus have missed the player.

    Ignore the advice to step your aperture down. Instead manipulate your ISO to gain a faster shutter speed and practice more until you're used to your camera, the speed of the autofocus, and your own capabilities.

    This is a great start and I'm jealous of your 1Dx. With practice you'll produce better photos. Keep going.

  • My Vitriol

    I always get my passes via any music mag or website that'll apply for me. Most are in need of decent photos from wherever they can get them. I only go when it's a band I'd go and see anyway - I'm cheap like that. Tongue

  • Good hand off

    In most of these photos that you post your shutter speed is too slow to freeze the action, and the players are too far away to be a really striking image. Research some sports photo techniques, wait til you're much nearer the action, and employ some post-processing to boost your saturation and contrast.

  • Comming through

    With all due respect, these photos are a series of snapshots, not sports photos. You have your camera on settings that display a lack of understanding of exposure, and your shutter speed is way, way too slow to freeze the action. Your perspective on the action is always shot too wide, despite your lens extending to 500mm.

    Can I recommend a really good book on sports photography and suggest you do a bit of
    studying? Your passion and effort are commendable but without a little more knowledge, your results will continue to need work.
