Thanks. I got a HS district golf tournament tomorrow. Weather, perfect. After some serious thinking, I'm going to put the 300mm on the D90 (cropped to 450mm), and the 70-200mm on the D700 (full frame). Can't wait to get some good shots. Golf photography etiquette says never click during the back swing, but some says OK if you are far away. With 450mm I hope I'm far away. I want to capture the ball on club shot.

Wow, did I learned a lot in just one tournament. First, I went into the pro shop to convince the guy behind the counter to provide me a cart (free). I went out all around trying to locate the kids I wanted to photograph, which was a bad thing to do. I suggest staying in one spot that covers tee and green or the fairway. Soon, I got so comfortable hanging around the greens that the moms and pops who were following their kids thought I was a pro (must be the 300mm lens I was hauling around, 450mm on the cropped D90). They wanted to buy prints from me Damn rich parents' sons playing golf, definitely a white man's game except for Tiger. They asked and I handed out some of my business cards with my flickr site and email address. I told them the originals are free, I don't charge. Not the greatest shots, but next time I should know better in positioning. BTW, I love photographing high school golf because it's during daylight and the game moves slowly so I can find the right position to compose the shot because the gallery is zilch. It is OK to shoot when the players are in the backswing if you are far away and the players cannot hear the shutter release. It's not like 20K photographers following Tiger all releasing the shutter at the same time. When the kids were on the green I took several putting shots. I asked the kids if they could hear the shutter release and they said no. Opps, I posted two photos in one post.

That is a really cool shot, Dave! It sounds like you had a good time out on the course today.

My pre-K son's soccer started 2 weeks ago. Given it's the first time taking fast moving subject, I think I did fine, except I looked like an idiot running up and down the field. It's a bye-week last week but we'll have 2 games this weekend.

We'll see if I'm able to capture some nice ones and post one of them here.

To me, as long as I get the shot it doesn't really matter how you look.

Looks like the Audi driver is going against the one way street.

Nothing exciting from a creative standpoint, you just don't see a Morgan Aero too often. I was in Prescott, Arizona over the weekend and the British European Auto Tour rolled into town around lunchtime Saturday.

Ryan Hall, 2011 4th place winner at the 2011 Boston Marathon. He came in at 2:04:58 which is the best time for an American male finisher.

A group of young Japanese girls decide to run towards their friend (girl in the orange shorts) as she approaches the finish line at the 2011 Boston Marathon. She must have been overwhelm by their support/finishing the race that she started to tear up.

From the looks of the amount of daylight left, she probably finished in a little more than 2 hrs 03 mins and 02 seconds.

Got to be more than 8-9 hrs because it looks like the course is beginning opened up to traffic. And, that one girl is trying to run the course backwards? There are always one or two who try to make a name of themselves.

yea it probably was as the race started at 10am and the pros finished in 2 hours. I shot that around 6pm. Here's the reason why the flag girl was running "backwards"


A very emotional runner is greeted by a group of her friends near the finish line of the 2011 Boston Marathon. She must have been overwhelm by their support/finishing the race that she started to let her emotions out.

I was just teasing. Heck she probably sneaked in at the wall. Look at her, ipod in place, dressed like she is going to a club. Anyone who dressed like that for a marathon would have died from heat exhaustion. Where is her bib?
