Default Tourney pics

A new tourney series started here, called the EPL. Its a 3 man tourney series using PSP mode. 5 events, with the series champion in Open class winning 3 Eteks. Pretty decent turnout today and another local baller and I were taking photos today. This was my first time really doing this, so I got a lot of bad pics, but a few good ones. I had settings all wrong, and throughout the day I was changing things and getting better. The next few events should produce better pics. Here's just a few that I've PP'd and uploaded. These along with the rest will go on my flickr page at: www.flickr.com/photos/cmaulephoto/











I've got probably 45 more I've got to PP and upload tomorrow. I'm shooting with a Canon Digital Rebel XT with a Sigma 28-300 f/3.5-5.6 DG Macro lens. Right now I've only got a 1GB card, so I had to shoot at a lower resolution to get more pics. I need to get a couple 4GB cards so I can shoot in RAW and get better pics. I shot ~450 pics today, and only kept ~60 of them. Thats about 1 in 13 that were keepers. Gary Baum, owner of paintballphotography.com and staff photographer for PB2X and Splat keeps roughly 1 of 25. Hopefully at the next event I'll be around 1 in 20.

I was, but Chad PMed me and said he didn't need me. I think he could tell I didn't really want to.

Looking good. Should try a polarized filter will do good at taking away alittle bit of that sun glare and sharpen the colors.

So do I, but my 1GB card said "HELL NO." I'm gonna pick up a 4GB before the next event.

The glare off of guns and bunkers was killing me. I deleted so many nice pictures because of it. The picture would be perfect, but there was no detail in the guns, just a big glare.
