It’s been about a year since I first seriously started thinking about buying a DSLR camera so I could explore photography in a way that would allow me a little better quality images and extras that my Fuji point-and-shoot didn’t have. It’s been a year and I still have much to learn. I’ve tried to improve upon technique and post-processing as much as possible before jumping into a lot of new equipment. There is a 70-300 zoom lens I’ve had my eye on for a long time, though.
Here are some of my favorite sports shots taken with my Olympus E-620.
I included spectator shots in the sports category. This shot of Justin supposedly watching one of Cameron's baseball games was taken with my Fuji FinePix point-and-shoot, but I threw it in because of the goofy look on his face as he's teasing the girls.
We'll call geocaching a sport too. Here are the four guys in a follow the leader formation trying to home in on the location of a cache in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
