Well after a year of having my first DSLR I'ts been quite the learning experience. Last year I shot with a 50mm 1.7 and got a few decent shots. I probably would have a few more if I knew PS as good as I do now after a year of practice.

Also learning your camera's capabilities along with a lens capablitiy really helps. I definitley can see an improvment but there's still alot for me to learn.

Here's my latest try. Pleasefeel free toC&C.

Equipment used, KM 5D with a 28-75mm 2.8 lens. ISO 1600, Shutter speeds where between 125 to 250 I don't think you could find a more dimly lit gym if you tried.

Mike - I like #2 quite a bit - nice shot there.

Shots 1, 3 and 4 have way too much dead space, however. Try to frame a bit tighter - or at least crop down on the action. IMO you'll end up with better results that way.

Thanks JohnG I agree.

By the way speaking off the subject, I've got a kid brother Named John G. But he's not into photography.

Well, if you're parents are very wealthy and don't mind adopting a 36 year old child, I could be your brother too :-)

lomitamike,

When you were shooting these, did you utilize the zoom very much? I can barely catch the action, try to focus, and get everything right with a prime, much less thinking about the zoom! You did a good job with the lighting IMO since these were shot at ISO 1600 and the lense was a 2.8.
