Last night I had the privilege to shoot at the USC vs UT game. It was so much fun being in a stadium full of crazy fans supporting their team. Just the cheering alone sent chills down my spine. It often fascinates me that a group of people can united in one effort and cause so much energy.
Lawrdy, the media room was like being in a china store when I was little and my mom would say, “don’t touch anything, only look.” I had to fight the urge to grab ahold of those 600mm lenses and Pro cameras and just play with them. I had some serious camera and lens envy, but I found a corner for me and my 70-200mm to set up shop and went to work. My camera obviously felt my lack of love for it and my longing to have a better one and my lens envy because she decided not to focus on what I was telling her to focus on. I have to calibrate my lenses for my camera to get it to focus where I want it to, however last night I had added a teleconverter onto my 70-200mm lens and it wasn’t until I took it off that I found a grove in shooting. It was frustrating to say the least because I don’t know when I will be back on the big boy field. It was still fun even though I botched a few things up.
Here are some pics from the game. I seemed to have gotten better pictures of UT than I did of USC. Hopefully I will get another chance to do this again. Hope you enjoy them.
