Focal Length:400mm
Shutter:1/3200 sec
Camera:NIKON D3S

2 days ago, Davis High School beat Fremont High School 1-0 in the Utah 5A Soccer State Championship game at Rio Tinto Stadium. The only point was scored by Steve McGrath in the 6th minute :-). This was an awesome game to shoot, though not as entertaining as the Davis vs. Viewmont games. I counted 2 yellow cards, one for each team. Everyone has come to a consensus that the ref for the game was terrible and should probably never be allowed to ref any games from now on.

This game was fun because I got to shoot with the school’s new Nikon D3s for the second time. In the end, the high ISO capabilities of the camera were used heavily, as the lighting in the stadium was in dark shade for the whole game. Not even the stadium lights seemed to help. This picture was shot with a Nikon 200-400mm lens zoomed all the way in and the aperture at f4. The shutter speed was 1/3200 to capture all of the action, which kicked the ISO up to the maximum of a whopping 128,000. Noise is clearly visible in the background, but you can’t see any where the picture is in focus. Amazing.
