Here is Friday Night Lights as I am living out right now....
My son was out in right field, and it was a long night of walks...17 of them in fact. So the only action all night long were the throws between the pitcher and the catcher.
Making the best of it I got a high vantage point in the parking lot, went as high ISO as I dared on my Pentax K-5 and shot away. I was at 1600 here and at F4.0 on my long telezoom. Pretty much convinced me that one are two artsy type shots were all I'd get last night. This would be the one reason I'd like a fancy full frame sensor...but I don't have the extra five thousand to get the body...not to mention more to get the right lenses.
When you got what you got, you just need to work that gear to the max...work your technique and make art with the scene God gave you.
Amazing how everything in photography is a microcosm of life!
