High school soccer at night...in the rain

Well, it starts with protecting your camera and lens.  I use AquaTech's camera rain gear.  It's perfect for the hardest rain.  These are not cheap, but they really work great.  I own one for my 300mm f2.8 and one for my 70-200mm f2.8 lens.  Lens Extender blog highlights a much less expensive option.

I set the camera (Canon 50D) using my normal soccer settings....Av mode, f2.8 (using my 300mm f2.8 lens), ISO 2000 and shutter speed 1/640+.  Here are a few shots from the very wet game.  Canon's 50D produces great shots at ISO 2000.  The noise level is more than acceptable.
