This past Friday I had an opportunity to shoot on the sidelines during the Lagrange vs Troup County high school football game in Lagrange, GA. The weather was nice and there was a huge turn out (earlier in the week I found out that this is the cross town rivalry).
For this game I rented a 5D Mark III and a Sigma 120-300 mm f/2.8 lens from LensRentals.com, and used my Canon 7D body, Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 lens and Canon 24-70mm f 2.8 lens. The 5D Mark III is the first Full Frame camera I shot with. I must say that I was blown away with the quality of the shots I got with this camera. I didn't have a lot of time to play around with 5D Mark III but from the multiple AF points, low light ISO performance, and other features, this will be a camera I hope to get in the future. Now on to the game.
There was a lot a buzz in the air before the game. In the first half the game was close. In the 3rd quarter Troup County started to pull away. When the clock struck zero, Troup County won 37 - 26 over their cross town rival. There was a lot of nice people that helped me out at Calloway field and I was to thank Troup County High school for allowing me to shoot their game.
Thanks for visiting.
