I took some photos of our high school marching band this afternoon in an exhibition. All with the K3 and either a Sigma 70-200 f/2/8 or Tamron 28-75 f/2.8.

The hummingbirds have been very active around the feeders the past couple of weeks. I've had three or four at a time at both feeders and decided to get some shots. Here are some favorites.

Sharing a drink.


Playing.


Posing...


This was my favorite shot as he hovered near the feeder. I used my K3 with a Sigma 18-250 lens and AF540 flash.

The nice thing about our Junior Varsity Football games is that they start earlier so there is plenty of sunlight. Here are a few shots from last Thursday night.

I took an old UV filter for my Bigma and purchased solar filter film and sugru to make a solar filter for the Bigma. At totality I switched to my Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 for some shots and then got a few with the Bigma without the filter. Here are some favorite shots.

Eatting the sunspots


Diamond Ring effect just as totality is about to occur.

Coming out of totality through the clouds.


Nearly done.


Thanks for looking. If you are interested, click on any of the photos to see the gallery will more shots. It was an awesome experience.

We enjoyed the Birds of Prey show at Callaway Gardens. At one point this Barred Owl flew past me with his wing brushing my face.



This Harris's Hawk was fun to watch in flight.





We hadn't planned on going to Callaway so I only had my K3 with a Sigma 18-250 lens. I wish I had taken my SIgma 70-200 f/2.8.

I purchased a Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 lens in the Marketplace and got it in today. I took it tonight while shooting basketball. I used it on my K3 for a girls' game (and used my Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 on my K5iis) and then switched the lenses for the boys' game and used the 28-70 on my K5iis.

Beautiful shots. I love the way the sky looks with the Sigma 10-20. Here's a shot that I took this past week.

Thanks. It's nice to be able to be close to the action. I just purchased a Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 that I look forward to using for basketball.

I have owned the Tamron as well and it did a good job. The Sigma is quieter and I shoot a good bit with it shooting plays and such in an auditorium so need the quiet focus. Bth the Tamron and Sigma work well for sports.

I shot another basketball game this afternoon. It was nice to have a little more light available since it was later afternoon and there are windows at the top of the gym. All using a Sigma 70-200 f/2.8.

Winter sports are in full swing at our high school. I've shot a couple of basketball games but tonight was the first home wrestling meet. My favorite shots tend to be the ones shot lying on the floor. All of these were with the K3, Sigma 70-200 f/2.8, and AF540F GX II flash.

Thanks, I got the shot by accident since the ref moved in front of me as I was shooting.

I mainly use my Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 for basketball but also will shoot some with a Sigma 10-20. I also use my Pentax 50mm f/1.4 some and crop if necessary. Here was a shot that I found interesting from last week. I was sitting behind the basket using the 10-20 lens. ISO was 6400 since it is not a fast lens.

The 70-200 is by far my most used lens, especially for sports.

Thanks. I was following the receiver expecting the pass but was fortunate to have the defender in the frame as well. The whole sequence is eight photos. If you click on the photos it will go to my SmugMug account and I uploaded all of the shots there.

The shots were taken with my K3 and a Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 lens. I was using TAv mode set to 1/400 sec. and f/2.8. ISO was 4000 on each of these. The ISO fluctuated between 1250 and 5000 depending on conditions.

We had our last football game of the season Friday. The first drive of our opponent ended with a nice interception in the end zone. I was following the receiver and caught a series of shots of the play.

We were given tickets to a local college football game this past weekend. It was a 1pm game so I decided the Sigma 18-250 would be a good choice and was pleased with the resulting shots of various different aspects of the game.

I'm getting ready for the solar eclipse that will occur in just under a year (on Aug. 21, 2017.) We are in the path of totality so I'm hoping for clear weather. I added a piece of solar film to an old UV filter for my Bigma and took a few practice shots today. I moved the camera around to be sure that the sunspots I saw were indeed sunspots and not dirt on the sensor.
