Been a while since I posted on here, mainly because I forgot. oops. Here's some pictures I took last night at the scottish league division one game. All ISO 800 @ 1/500 with D50. I'm getting myself a D80 VERY soon. next week hopefully!

Good shots for the conditions you took them under.

Some are very good action shots and could be a great addition to the teams website if they have one.

They do, but they have an official photographer. I do take pictures for the match day program / magazine at the club though as well as for the supporters website livilions.co.uk

Have some more after sat, daytime shots.

You definitely know the game due to these great action shots captured. The Nikon D50 has impressed me for taking such great shots but of course the credit goes to the person behind the camera.

Look forward to your next postings.

Nice pics, were you using a flash? It appears as though you were. What lens?

No flash. Reasonably decent lights @ livingston...used sigma 70-200 2.8 @ iso 800 then brightened (quite a bit) in photoshop. I must also conceed, some of them are 1/400 and not 1/500 as stated.

I fond it better to underexpose at iso800 and then brighten up than expose correctly @ iso 1600. Less noise. I'm looking forward to the increased noise control of the d80.

I must also say, it helped that both teams were playing in bright colours. Livingston (the team in yellow) have a BLACK away top!

I've heard of that trick before but haven't tried it. I shoot Pentax, but I think the sensor characteristics are very similar. In fact, I heard of this trick by a Pentax shooter on another board. Your shots are very nice and show what a good photographer can do, despite the tough conditions.
