Posted By: andre-mz5, 07-20-2010, 05:26 AM

Last weekend there was an atlethics meeting. For me one of the challenges was to get a few shots of the 100/110m hurdles. Her some resulys, hope you like them.

1 - Gregory Sedoc


2 - Marcel van de Westen


3 - ladies were competing as well


4 - I find it difficult to get interesting running shots, this is 3000m.


5 - standard shot of a longjump


6 - highjump


7 - highjump, from behind the posts

Thanks Adam. There are too few posts in the sports section.
I just hope these kind of series shows that Pentax K7 is also capable to get good shots of various kinds of sports.

Great shots
Congrats

Could you please share your setting?
Did you use program P or TAv or else?
What was the shutter speed, aperture and ISO?
Did you use continous high burst?
Handheld or tripod?

Thanks

Thanx bodhi08.
When I shoot sports I normally use Tv or TAv. In this case I used TAv with 1/1250 & F4 and let the K7 figure out the ISO. The exif is in the pictures, so you can get all other info.
I sometimes use a monopod for sports when using long glass, but this time I did not need it. I was shooting continous high burst and take s serie of 3-4 shots.

Thx Andre.

I didn't realise that the EXIF is intact

Hopefully, I'll be able to take pics like this someday...these are awesome
