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.
The Muscle Help Foundation exists to deliver amazing and unforgettable experiences in the UK for children and young people suffering from the muscle wasting disease Muscular Dystrophy.
