2009/164: Indoor Soccer

The spring soccer season ended on May 30,  and Greg signed Sara up for indoor soccer over the summer…. then we have the outdoor fall season starting in September.
June 6th was the first indoor game, and Sara loved it (she even scored a goal)! She said she likes it better than playing outside. I have to say, though, indoor soccer is a LOT more running, and they get just as sweaty and hot as playing outside.
This is a new team, the Little Coyotes, although one of her Kitty Katsteam mates is on this team with her.


I will probably be leaving the camera at home for the other games. The lighting was terrible, and I had the ISO up as high as it would go, and a lot of times still couldn’t get fast enough shutter speed to avoid motion blur. Having to shoot through  plexi didn’t help much either, as you can see by the reflections.

  1. no rest for the weary huh? So glad she is loving it… I think this pic turned out great…but sometimes it is nice to leave the camera home and enjoy it with out looking through the viewfinder!

  6. What’s your fastest lens? Also, it helps to set your EV settings to +1.0 or more to get the exposure bright enough to work with. However, this will increase the noise in high ISO photographs.

    I had to do this with high school ice hockey last season. It works but I needed to use noise reduction software to clean up the shots.
