High School Football – Pullman vs Moscow – Sept. 14, 2018

This evening I was given the opportunity to step on the field as a photographer at the Pullman High School football game. This was my first chance to get up close to the game action. I had a great time doing this shoot. I tried getting photos for multiple angles around the field.

I used my Canon 70D with a Canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS USM II lens. I had to pump up the ISO setting pretty high to allow my shutter speed to be fast enough to mostly eliminate the blur from the action in the photos.

Pullman High School played Moscow (Idaho) High School at Hobbs Field in Pullman. It was all Pullman. After the first half of play the score was 41 – 7. Pullman scored in the second half and started the running clock rule for the game. The final score was 48 – 7.

High School Football – Pullman vs Lakeside – Aug. 31, 2018

This evening I went to the Pullman High School football game against Lakeside High School. The game was held at Hobbs Field in Pullman.

I shot all my photos with my Canon 70D with my Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens. As the day turned to night I had to increase my ISO setting in order to be able to get the faster shutter speed for football.

This was my second high school football game and the first one where I was near the sidelines.

Pullman High School went into half time with a 21 – 16 lead. After half they came out and got down to business. They outscored Lakeside by 20 – 7 in the second half. The final score was 41 – 23 in favor of the Pullman Greyhounds.

2018 Goosetown Softball Tournament

The weekend of July 14th and July 15th took me to Anaconda, MT for the Goosetown Softball Tournament. Between playing games I pulled out my camera to take photos at other games taking place.

I used my Canon 70D along with my Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS II lens. It is fast glass and allows me a great zoom for the outfield shots. My biggest challenge with the photos was the location of sun as I was moving around between the fields.

This gallery is larger than normal galleries but really it is like having three different games under the heading of one gallery.
