Splash! Revisited

One of the photographic opportunities of staying in a university hall is definitely the sports that I get to cover. However, most of it is a pain to cover since its either indoors or at night. With no flash allowed and my Canon 400D which performs horribly at high ISO settings, it can be a pain to cover these games. Fortunately, swimming is always outdoors with ample sunlight over you.

These are shots from the recent Inter-Block Games (IBG), an internal sports competition within the hall between the 5 different blocks. It’s more of an avenue for the team captains to search for fresh, new blood among the new year 1’s as new players. For us photographers, its more work to be done 😦 This one below is my personal favorite for the day.

And as usual, put a bunch of young people near a big pool of water, occurrences such as the one photographed below tend to transpire.

All shots taken with my Canon 400D paired to a 70-200mm f/2.8.

  1. Ooo I dont go to uni anymore so I dont have chances to shoot these stuff.

    Nicely done on the 2nd pic. Will be heading to Singapore over the Raya weekend. You going to be there or balik kampung?

  2. Hey Nic! Will be around during the Raya weekend. In fact, I have a 1 week mid sem break on that week! πŸ˜€ Feel free to contact me if you want to go out to shoot together.

  3. I definitely know what it’s like shooting with a 400D in low-light and hating the noise at ISO1600. πŸ˜›

    But hey, you were armed with a 70-200 f2.8 for this event and I’ve to say they look superbly sharp.

  4. Hey Danny! Thanks! This event was under broad daylight. A lot more easier compared to the indoor or night games where even the mighty 70-200 f/2.8 has problems focusing 😦
