Another assignment for The Muscle Help Foundation this weekend just gone. The charity held a fundraising cricket tournament at Hertford Cricket Club, with a series of 6-a-side matches throughout the afternoon.
This was an interesting prospect for me as I don’t have a lot of experience photographing field sports. Not being the owner of a fast long lens of the sort normally associated with sports photography, I was going to be at the mercy of the elements when it came to lighting. A good light obviously allows a faster shutter speed at a reasonable film speed. This was particularly important as I was hoping to use a modest 200m lens (300m 35mm equivalent) and then crop the shots.
As it was, the light was kind to me and I was quite pleased with the results.
