On the Sideline

On the Sideline

I had the opportunity to capture some video and photos at the Calgary Stampeders' home opener on Canada Day.  Shooting from the sidelines of a football stadium was a new experience for me.  In order to capture the action, I used a Canon Extender EF 2X II that transformed my Canon 70-200 2.8 ii lens into a 400mm.  The extra zoom power really helped capture the action.  I found the photos ended up not being as sharp as they would have been without the extension tube, but overall, I feel happy with the results.  The Calgary Stampeders published a few of the photos to their social media accounts.  

I spent some of the day working on capturing hyperlapses.  Out of three attempts, two of them failed and one turned out.  You can see a GIF of the successful hyperlapse below.
