    Default Shooting soccer game, how?

    Jed, your speaking time?

    Ok, I will probably shoot a soccer game sometime next week. Wonder what setup should i use: 50-500 + tripod or 70-200 + monopod or 50-500/70-200 combo? my 500mm has a max aperture of f6.3 (but displaying at f5.6), is it enough for artificial illumination at night? ISO 400 or 800? Flash?

    btw, normally am i elligible to be approached without a pass?

    thx for any input

    better still, run with the 70-200 and then can get extreme close-up of the players' faces dripping with sweat and cursing and swearing...

    Sorry, me not the typical guy, not interested in football at all, and not interested in shooting pretty girls with fancy dresses. Afterall, what's the fun of watching/shooting 22 people chasing after 1 ball, only to kick it away when the ball comes?

    And before you guys think astray, I am straight! Just that these are not my type of photo subjects.

    Use a Leica with 35/2, go up close and personal with the players, or lie on the ground and shoot up for dramatic shots.

    heheh. that's why. Well at least I don't have to stay up all night to watch world cup and arrive in office like a zombie, and don't have to partipate in Man U vs Liverpool vs Arsenal flamewars (as if N vs C not enuff )

    Exactly! And I won't be tempted to put down my hard-earned money to stake out who will win by how many goals...

    but then actually, I do watch World Cup lah, for the excitement. I just don't follow EPL and other leagues, definitely not S-League either.
