I used to play a little field hockey.

The shots are good but...

Maybe if you raised the ISO a little, they would be brighter.

Or, you could raise the brightness about one stop using software after the fact.

Also, times you might want to blur the background a little. Shoot a little more "wide open".

Great pictures. I like the plays on the goal the best.

Thanks.

Terry - unfortunately I am limited by a cheap lens (Tamron 70 - 300 mm f4-5.6). Would love some more dof but can't get anything with that lens.

Looking to get a 2.8 constant in the future.

With the brightness, I work on a laptop so can't tell how these look on a normal screen. Can you please edit a couple to the levels you think look good so I can see the difference and possibly adjust the settings on my screen.

Not bad. I really like shots 1, 3, 7 and 8. A high shutter speed on some would help and as Terry put it would blur the background. As all of us know shooting outdoor sports can be tricky, the light does not stay consistant and some times catching the action is pure luck. For your first try I give you a thumbs up.

Ahh... Field Hockey, loved the game, not as much as Rugby, but I do like it. Your pictures did bring me back to my playing days, and made me want to pick up a stick again. Just can't find any teams here in the Middle of America. Good Composition, and given the constraints you mentioned, I think these were pretty good shots. I would listen to Terry's advice, he's a pro at Sports Photography. As they always say, "Practice makes perfect". Keep posting.

Gee... I thought the DOF was good on this picture. Sharp too!
