College Football (Practice)

The New Mexico State Aggies are in town for a week, using the stadium here in town for training camp. I have to say it is really fun getting to cover sports in bright daylight, and getting to make images of athletes with a higher level of skill than I normally get to cover, even if it was only a practice session.

On the downside, arriving at the practice I was less than thrilled to find out that the 300mm f/2.8 lens that the staff shares was not working on my Nikon D80 camera. This has to be my biggest complaint about having pool equipment - somebody else messes it up and never bothers to admit that something happened, leaving the next person to use it in a bind. I did get the lens to work on my D200 camera body, so it was not a total loss.
