Hello everyone,

One of the popular sports here is rugby. Here are a few shots from a game a few weeks ago, Shawnigan Lake School vs. Brentwood College.

Brentwood College won, BTW :D

All pictures taken with my 70-300G

Probably my favourite game! :) You've captured it nicely.

Thanks!

It was my first real experience shooting sports. It was also quite fun, all my friends now ask me for these pictures, and maybe I could get them published in the year book.

Very nice shoots, I like a lot the Rugby... Did you use a Monopod? Or a Tripod? Or they are just handheld?

Cheers!

Thanks!

They were all hand held, I was shooting at 1/500 most of the time, something like that.

Luckily the lighting was good.

Nice! In the sunny days shooting without a monopod shouldn't be an issue, but if the day becomes cloudy it'll be hard to shoot at 1/500... Perhaps is clever to get one. In the next game try some panning, in a Rugby game the "in-move" images rox!!! 8)

Cheers!

Great shots! I really like 5 and 6. Really cought the action :D

Speaking of monopods, does anyone have any suggestions what to look for when getting one? I've read that i should get one so i could look through the viewfinder when standing up.
Is there anything else really important?
;)

What to cook for lunch and dinner around the rugby tomorrow? I have 4 guests coming for lunch and then to watch the rugby; 2 are then staying for dinner too. Any ideas what I should cook? I'm a fairly experienced and confident cook so would like to do something fairly challenging for dinner. I'd also like to do something interesting for lunch other than cold meats, salad, cheeses etc. Any ideas?

nice shots,

Tighter cropping especially the last two images will be helpful
