Decided to try out my sports action photography skills at my brothers Local Rugby League match (first time!!). For those who don't know Rugby League is like Rugby Union but MUCH better (
All shots are taken with my Canon 55-250mm f 4-5.6 IS at various ISO's and shutter speeds on a EOS 400D body
The day was pretty ordinary with overcast conditions, light precipitation and late afternoon. Needless to say as the game went on my pictures got decidedly worse (darker and grainier). I actually stopped at around 15mins to go after reviewing photos and seeing how dark they were.
A question for other sports photgraphy enthusiasts out there: Whats your feeling on noise in images? Is it ok in some instances or to be avoided like the plaugue??
