What about this? Also no post processing or editing done

I'd like to see more action or creative angles. Get someone sliding/diving behind cover, paint splattering around them or a player actually getting shot (yeah, the last one is a lot of luck too). Camping in the middle of the field also will give you great angles, just be careful of giving away players' positions. Only drawback is you and your equipment are in the line of fire.

Thank you for the pointers thumb.gif

what lens were you shooting with? and all you would have done is pan the camera right a little bit and *bam your subject is now in the left third of the frame facing towards the empty space, rule of thirds still would have worked thumb.gif and that would isolate your subject even more making for a nice clean image on that frame. not saying it needs to be that way for all photos of paintball. but this current image as it is wouldnt be a keeper in my book if i shot it. just my opinion, i bet you got way more better shots from this event biggrin.gif

that second shot you posted is much much more interesting than the first thumb.gif

At breakouts I was at 30 dorito and 30 snake, never really stayed at the 50.

You're in the line of fire almost everywhere you go whether it's direct or bouncing off a bunker.

I was using a 70-200 f/4,

I'll be using my schools 300 f/4 for part of today just to change things up and make things a bit tighter across field.

Thank you guys.

I still have 1100 or so I haven't gone threw but I'm about to go back out to the field for the finals.

honestly i think a 300 would be too long for paintball unless you are only going for closeups or standing way in the back which limits what you can get from that angle versus being closer to the middle. a 70-200 at 70mm would give you the opportunity to stay a little further back from the line of fire and be able to get interesting framed shots that show more of the surroundings around the players. its nice having tight action shots but usually some of the best paintball shots i have seen is at the final 1v1 moment where one player rushes another and the shot shows the surrounding field empty with 2 players left close together, granted not every match ends with a 1v1 or even one player rushing the other at the end. other good shots are of players just moving up in general especially off the break when you get people jumping over or sliding to cover

it also depends on what the officials say as far as photography. usually as long as you do not interfere with the match im sure they would be ok with what you are doing. obviously if you are at a spot that a player needs to get to in order to move that would cause a problem lol
