Grab Shot 17 - "Throw the Ball"


"I was shooting field hockey (boy, that is hard, timing is crucial, but I guess practice makes perfect. I do think an IS lens will help tough...)," says Maarten Sneep. "On the next field someone was playing with his dog. Again, more timing challenges, but I think I got this one. The dog was waiting for the ball to be thrown, and the anticipation is what I really like in the picture."

Maarten used a Canon EOS 350D, Sigma 55-200mm zoom @ 200mm, set at ISO 400, f/7.1, and 1/1600. (Automatic action program mode, just getting the shot during a sporting activity is enough work for me right now...)
