Some More College Soccer

For a night match last week I chose to shoot with my 5D Mark III and 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. I figured that with the full frame camera I could shoot at 6400 ISO and still get clean images while still being able to crop for tighter photos. That all worked out fine. I was having issues with auto focus, though.

A lot of files had no active focus point indicated when I was reviewing the files. So, either there is an issue with my back focus button or I was not keeping it pressed sufficiently. My subsequent testing didn't indicate any obvious issues with the button.

I had a fewer number of images than usual to add to my gallery at As usual with sports under the lights it's best to shoot in manual mode, in this case ISO 6400 and f/2.8 at 1/1000th of a second. If anything I had to reduce brightness and/or highlights on some images. Here are four from the match.
