What I'm working on ...

This afternoon my son and I went to the Carolina Panthers' Training Camp. It is held in our home town and is open to the public. This is the first time that we have gone to it, and we manged to find almost the perfect spot from which to photograph it. I took a lot of pictures. Actually, I filled one 4GB SD card and a good portion of another 4GB SD card. Out of nearly 550 shots, I've narrowed it down to around 180 give or take. I will probably weed a few more out as I take process them in Capture NX2. It might be a day or two before I have them all processed. This is the first NFL, or even American football, event that I have photographed. I'm really quite pleased with what I got. I will try to post them up to my Zenfolio gallery in batches in order to share them with everyone quicker. Now don't go expecting Sports Illustrated quality photography here, but I think I got some good pictures for a rank beginner in this sort of thing.

Oh cool! I'm looking forward to seeing them.

Which lens did you use for this?

I mainly used the 70-300mm VR. I did use the 18-135mm for a few shots at first, but quickly realized that it wouldn't be long enough if they moved to one of the other practice fields which they did.

I should have the first batch up this evening. The had has been quite busy and I haven't gotten very many processed yet.
