Fly Photos

The fly event in swimming are always a challenge. In the first place your timing have to be spot on. There is only a fraction of a second where the hands of the swimmer are out of the water and his or head is up so one can see there faces clearly.  

What concern the angle it is a matter of taste.  The most common angle is the one right from the front where i prefer a angel slighty from the side which prevent the photo to become to much a panoramic tipe of photo.

The photo below i took on 7 March 2009 at the SA primary Schools Aquatic Champs in Germiston Johannesburg. I used my Nikon D3 and a 600mm F4 lens.

FNB Varsity Cup

The FNB Varsity cup is a relative new series in South Africa which give the younger players the opportunity to get some exposure.  I wish that SA rugby will start a similar series for club rugby again. I think this will do wonders for South African Rugby.

On 2 March the Shimlas played Tukkies in Bloemfontein at Shimla Park and i got away with this shot of Shimla Lock Frans le Grange on his way scoring a try for the Shimlas. I used a Nikon D3 and a 400mm F2.8 lens.
