I'm planning on attending a game at BC Place later this year and was hoping to take some pictures with my D3 and attached 70-200mm lens. I think that the NFL restricted spectator lens to to 6" or less and don't know if the CFL has a similar policy. I'm hoping someone here has some experience shooting from the stands or knows.
It better be a big lens cause the game is at empire stadium at the PNE site about 10 miles away . since your going to be at BC place take some shots of the renovations so you can post them on this board.
I read the conduct and courtesy rules and one of them was "Wearing obscene or indecent clothing" that should have eliminated all those Rider Fans . :lol: :lol: :lol: . I jest I sat beside a couple at the BC vs Riders game and they were great and we all had a good time.
Even a poor camera may produce beautiful shots if the mind behind the lens understands the principles of photo composition - including how to treat the subject matter appropriately and how to arrange a scene so that the end result is beautiful.
Indeed as has been, is, and would be confirmed by many a scream and requests for more shots :lol:
It's been indicated to me not always verbally that it's the total package and delivery that count after effective yet smooove presentation. That's not a misspelling. :lol:
Anyway with an interest in photography in the past, I was just curious to find out from Chris what he's noticed personally with that big lens because hot chicks tend to love posing for cameras. :cowboy:
I don't know about BC, but I was at the Ticat-Argo game at the former Skydome a few weeks ago and one of Rogers Stormtroopers one section over from me removed one guy with a camera and long lens. You have to remember that football games, like concerts, movies and live theater is copyright protected and you can't record or photograph any of those so I would imagine football games would be the same. I guess it depends on how vigilant the security is. In the case of that game, the guy got back to his seat, but I think he had to delete his photgraphs and put the camera away.
According to my wife it's the more expensive the shot , the camera only comes out when she's ready
to have her picture taken , and don't blow it cause you only have one shot at it then were out of film till next week.
