Haka, rugby and rain and RAIN
Posted By: Arpe, 05-07-2009, 03:12 AM

Covered a local inter-school rugby game on Wednesday night. It rained and RAINED! So good not having to worry about the camera, only the lens, which I cover with a plastic bag (real pro!). The lights aren't too good, I had to stay between the 22's (middle 2 quarters) as the lights at the end are not good. As it is I generally use f2.8, 1/350, ISO1600-4500, monopod.

Here's some pics-
The Haka (a Maori war dance, reasonably common tradition before a sports game, in this case both teams did it at once and got very close to each other)-
1 (2.8, 1/500, 2200)

2 (2.8, 1/350, 2200)

Onto the game-
3 (2.8, 1/350, 1600)

4 (2.8, 1/350, 2200)

5 (2.8, 1/350, 1600)

6 (2.8, 1/500, 1600)

7 (2.8, 1/500, 1600)

Yep, K20D. I've just had an enquiry about getting the top one printed at 50x75cm (20x30")! Might be too expensive for them though.
