So out of the blue I got called by a lady who worked for the Special Olympics Africa, and last minute, got asked to shoot africa countries for them. So I did. Had my D700, D80, 24-70, 70-300,70-200, and sb-900 with me. I didn't use the D80 at all, and used the 70-300 for a few shots till i realised the added reach really didn't help that much. For the indoor shots I kept my shutter speed around the 1/640th mark, aperture priority, +1/3rd ev. Iso's were between 3200 and 6400 at f2.8. AF settings for the most part were 21 pt dynamic af, Continuous, 5fps. I started out shooting in RAW, then realised how many shots I was taking, and that I wasn't prepared to sit for hours and process all of them after, so I just shot in jpeg, and made sure to overexpose rather than under for the indoor sports, and that was that. Overall, quite enjoyed it :)

All the above shots are SOC, so no added pp, shot in jpeg. The following shots have been through some contrast;

Wow, brilliant shots! I just love the third shot from the second section.

Keep up the great work, awesome pics!
