thanks. I know the bloke quite well in the photograph. did some design work for him. looks a bit of a brute but he's actually a really nice bloke!
Deffo will look into getting a nice lens for footie. Need to do some research but really think i need something with a low aperture as i could only manage 5.4 while zoomed in. Might go for something like a 300mm which have the low apetures. Would be ideal if i had two cameras on the go as well.
Get what you can afford of course, but the pros tend to be quite a bit longer than that and as wide as possible. Some of the most expensive lenses known to man.
Worth it if you have PL accreditation of course. Some hire the stuff I guess
But this stuff has a more artistic quality that action shots...
Ultimately it's action that sells to the papers the next day though
