Overdue update

It has been almost a month since I posted an update. I have been very busy with football and now basketball is starting up. I shot two nights of basketball then had to worry about rain for football on Friday night.
On Wednesday, I had three Cabot kids sign national letters of intent. During the ceremony, the shutter went out on my Canon EOS 40D camera. I called Canon, overnighted it there that afternoon and got it back on Friday afternoon, just in time for the football game and rain.

Carlisle's Monie Cohen goes up for a shot against Bald Knob. It was shot with the 40D and an Alien Bee B400 aimed at the top of the key. I used PW Plus II

Same setup as the first shot.

Carlisle opened the playoffs with a 35-8 win over McCrory. As you can see, it was raining and it was annoying. I set the camera on 3200 ISO, 1/250 sec at 2.8 on my 70-200 lens. It wasn't ideal but I didn't want to use the flash since I had forgotten my poncho that I use for my flash setup. But the photo will be usuable for the paper and I kept my camera dry!
