Caught an exciting 1-0 win over Bay Shore for the Commack field hockey team last Wednesday.
The sun was going in and out for this game, mostly in. In fact, it got so overcast I was shooting at ISO 6400 at 1/320 sec. near the end of the game. That shutter speed is not going to get you many keepers but it did get me a few.
You can sometimes get away with a low shutter speed in field hockey especially when the players are battling for the ball. Even though their sticks are moving their bodies are fairly stationary. If they start to move with the ball you can always pan and hope for the best.
Next post is football. Heading to the homecoming game in a little while. Have fun.
