Today was a stressful day, but it was fun. I got the chance to take pictures of the college football game between the Utah Utes vs. Air Force Falcons. My day started out very differently than I planned. I was planning to get the 400mm lens from the office because the 400mm is THE lens for the game as you know. However, when I got to the office, we only had one 400mm and one 600mm left in the gear pool, and I was not the only photographer for the game. My paper sent two photographers to the game. I ended up using the 600mm monster.
In the beginning, I really didn’t get used to the lens. I was like, just let me go to the roof of the stadium to take the photos because the focal length is so close. Eventually I got used to the lens and got some decent shots.
One more thing, during the first half of the game, the weather was not pretty at all, and I wasn’t prepared for the rain. I had to take off my jacket to cover the lens and the camera and, I, myself, got soaked. But again, it was a great experience and FUN! Lol!
