Orem upset

"Lehi forward Jessica Vanderhoef celebrates her first goal of the game with teammate Tasha Price with 12 minutes remaining in the second half against Orem at Lehi High School, Thursday, Aug. 20, 2009. Vanderhoef's goal led Lehi to a, 2-0, victory."

I've only been here for a week, but have already witnessed two upsets very early in the Utah County sports season.

The first being the Lehi upset over Orem, the reigning Class 4A girls soccer champions.

What made this assignment a little different was that I was shooting Canon over Nikon for an extended period of time...for the first time.

Work supplies me with a full bag of Canon goodies. But coming from freelance, I had a overflowing trunk of Nikon gear. Not to mention, I've been loyal to Nikon since I began shooting a couple years ago.

Overall, I shot 200 some total frames at the game. About 150 were with a Canon 1D Mark II N and a 400mm. Before I continue, coming from full-frame the 1.3x crop is totally awesome with a 400mm. Anyways, I also shot 50 frames with the Nikon D3 and 300mm.

Needless to say, I am still not used to Canon. I moved two photos. The above and this photo, both shot with the Nikon.

Soon enough I'll get the hang of it, in the meantime, I'll continue to make better images with the Nikon gear. Or so I think.

On a another note, I'll admit, I hate this photo, but I totally wanted to see this happen at the game at Lehi.
