    Default How to shoot bowling @ orchid country club?

    Hello all! I'm going to be shooting the A div bowling at orchid country club tomorrow. I have no idea how to shoot and where I can shoot from, though.

    Would appreciate any tips with regards to the shooting or location. Will be going there with my 5D, 1D2n, 17-40L, 50 1.4 and 70-200 2.8L IS so gear wise I'm covered... I hope.

    Cheers!

    rule no2... never stand too near to the bowler... use a telephoto lens only. 70-200 f2.8 preferred.

    Both rules noted. I wouldn't want to distract the bowler or hurt myself.

    Hey hey, i just went there to shoot my sch for A div on wed.
    You should be fine with your equip, just that you arent allowed to go down towards the lanes without the Teacher or Coach tag.

    Anyway, why am i saying all this. You would have ended by the time you read this.
