Shooting sports recently

Hey everyone,

Youth baseball has been my go to for the past couple of weeks. I miss sports and so the very little bit of baseball has me in a better place you can say.

I also recently realize that I miss having a sports dedicated camera. I used to have a d3s and it would do 9FPS(Frames Per Second) in burst mode and now with the 5d Mark iv I am only getting I think 6.. That three makes a huge difference!

So with that being said we’re onto another topic that has nothing to do with a sports camera body but something that can aid in sports photography and that is..

USING A TELECONVERTER.

I rented a 1.4x TC to pair with my 70-200mm f2.8 and if you’re not familiar with what a TC can do for you, Ill break it down to the best of my ability. Putting a 1.4x TC onto a 70-200mm f2.8, you initially get a 98mm-280mm f4 lens. The quality will vary depending on the lens you have and how good the TC is. Some cheaper TC’s will just ruin the overall image quality but this was a newer 1.4x TC from Canon. I rented it through LensProToGo.com and I was very pleased with the results.

Check out this video here to see some of the sample images I took during a weekend of baseball in Kansas City.

I appreciate all of you and hope you’re all staying safe out there in this world.

See you next time!
