With the expansion of games in the new league, many of the varsity games are later in the evening, often not starting until 7:30 P.M.  Even with one of Canon’s most revered great whites, the 300mm f/2.8 L IS, a fixed f/2.8 lens, less available light has made capture of the fast moving game action much more difficult.  The current Canon flagship 1Ds Mark III is a workhorse, but where is the Canon 1Ds Mark IV?   Another vicitm of the tsunami in Japan perhaps.  I’m finding myself photographing these late games at much higher speeds than normal for quality captures. 

You can see more images from the games against Salinas (and previous games) at   As a reminder, make sure to select “studio pick-up” as a delivery option to save on shipping/handling fees, unless you really do want purchased images sent by mail.  You can also designate your image favorites for each game, which will save your selections for viewing on subsequent visits.  Prints may be purchased online or by calling me at my boutique portrait photography studio in Carmel at (831) 626-1844.  Contact me for larger print sizes or posters with the CHS Water Polo logo.  ken
