Hello All & Happy New Year!. Here's a small selection of shots taken this weekend at a soccer matchI covered (just glad there for newspaper reproduction). Kick off was 2.30pm & by 3pm I was shooting at ISO 1000/1600 with a shutter speed of 400/250th :shock:. EXIF intact. Kind regards Graham.

Hi Graham,

Happy New Year to you, even if the first shooting wasn't a happy one.

That lighting really sucks doesn't it and unfortunately that hurt the shots. Number 2is probably the best action with good facial expressions. Do you use any noise reduction software as there is a huge amount of noise going on even at these small sizes?

Let's hope the rest of 2009 has some better light.

Hello Mark, long time no see, hope yourwell!:-),

Thank you for the look in!. I do have Noise Ninja software & did apply it to the shots but removed it as. IMO. it made them too "plasticky"!. I feel Ireally need to upgrade cameras now as i'm up against fellow local pressphotographers that beat me hands down with there D300/ D3's in the ISO/noise department. It's an expensive move though & given I only shoot mainly"local Rag stuff" maynotbe very cost effective. Will have to way up the balance I think!.

Look forward to seeing some of your sports work (sadley missing of late). Kind regards Graham.
