...the Star and Red Wings yesterday at the AAC in Dallas. I shot OK...but still a bit miffed about my shutter going on one of my Mark II's it only has 87,000 actuations...and really shouldn't have gone so early. I think alot has to do with the defective 100mm F2 lens I had just bought from B&H....I kept getting "err 01" on every body and it locked up the mirror and shutter. Well, tomorrow is for calls to B&H, Canon and shopping on E-bay....Football today! Here's a pair from yesterday.

A great night was had shooting TCU vs. Wyoming basketball on Tuesday night in Fort Worth. Not only was it a decent basketball game; Wyoming Head Coach Heath Schroyer is HILARIOUS! One of the most animated coaches I have seen in a long, long time! Here's a strip of Heath for ya! I need to do some editing of it, but my dad is here chopping at the bit to hit Lowe's, Home Depot and a place called Harbour Tools.

100mm F2.......

......YES!!! What a sweet little lens that doesn't break the bank at $424 on B&H. Used it for the first time at Fossil Ridge last night shot at 3220iso, 640 (YES, 640 shutter) and F2.2. What really BLOWS my mind about this digital stuff is the images are actually brighter than the gym they are played in. It's freaking are acouple...Still like my long stuff with the 300mm the best, but these are with the 100mm. Cowboys today?!?!

...shooting TCU vs. Air Force today I have realized that my 15 year old 70-200 2.8 is still pretty good! After shooting in a dark gym last night and dealing with slow focus, blur and other crap....I have learned (more or less been reminded) you can't get great images when it's dark! Daniel-Meyer Coliseum is REALLY bright....1600 iso, 1000 shutter speed and 2.8. So instead of a new 80-200 I thinks going to be a prime...85/1.8 or 100/2....let the shopping begin.
