Anyone for Tennis

By Tonyd3  
Luckily I bagged a press pass to get into the tennis with a great seat on a concrete floor ( i kid you not) but it was a great vantage point being low down with the 200mm and 1.4 converter. The hard part with any sport is to get the ball in the frame when they're playing with a ball that is. I'm sure some will remember spot the ball years ago you can see here she is looking directly at it. I did try lots of experimenting with shutter speeds (after 5 days shooting the same thing over and over you do) just to be different, here is a fast one 1/6400th iso 400 f2.8 as i was looking to get both feet of the ground and keep it sharp.

My personal preference is to always shoot wide open at a sports event, this removes many of the background clutter within the image and helps to make the subject a little more 3 dimensional.

Thanks for the support on the memorial flight from Cosford with clicks super comments and user awards all are greatly appreciated.

Terrific sharpness & clarity of this action Tony, that ball must be travelling at some speed. Amazed at her two feet off the ground.
