Ultimate Frisbee - Notre Dame Girls

Well....taking photos of an Ultimate Frisbee match is a real challenge....especially in 25 mile an hour wind.  Below are some shots of the University of Notre Dame Girls playing in the 2011 Sectionals.  I used my 2 camera approach here as well...Canon 50D (70-200mm f2.8, neck strap) and Canon 7D (300mm f2.8 mono pod).  The 70-200mm was the most useful by far since the field is a bit smaller than a football field, and the game moves very fast.

Two Canons when shooting sports

I almost always use both my Canon 50D (with a 70-200mm f2.8 lens hanging on a strap) and my Canon 7D (on a monopod with a 300mm f2.8 lens) when shootong outdoor sports.  This works great for soccer especially...the big lens captures the action on the far end of the field while the 70-200 allows me to shoot the closer side of the field.
