No sir, I’m still here, but I’ve been chasing soccer games, Boy Scouts, and work. I’ve been shooting and getting some pretty good pictures. I’ve been teaching her some techniques and she’s getting much better. I’ll still be adding a new lens but I won’t be buying any junk. Thanks for all the tips, and if anyone has any techniques to drop I’m all ears. Sorry for not checking this more often. Just hooked up super short right now.

That he appears to have left this topic in his rear view mirror makes it doubly puzzling...


OP had asked about soccer, which is a sport, as is T&F. Just to give the OP some examples of sports shots.

Having shot a lot of both, soccer has some different considerations. I can usually position more easily in Track and Field putting less of a premium on a long reach. In soccer, you have less latitude and your shots are much less predictable.

True. Unless you have access to the sidelines, and even then if it is a full size field, soccer may have great requirements for reach

The soccer player in blue whom I shot attacking the goal is Kaile Halvorson. She went on to play College soccer at Santa Clara where I'm told she won a National Championship this year!
