Wasup Yard! This is kinetic here at the YB Headquarters, and I finally went through my photos from the Hall of Fame Fantasy Football Draft at Bimbos Club in the North Beach area of San Francisco, California.
It was a beautiful day, and a fantastic venue. Got off of work early and headed over to the city for the event. I have never covered a real event before, other than family friend's wedding (as a secondary for fun photographer), and I've definitely never shot photos in such a dark low lighting environment. There were A LOT of challenges I've never gone through, but my trusty camera bag had all the tools I needed.
I went with a 85mm F/1.4 and a 50mm F/1.8 for my Nikon D80, equipped with a SB-600 flash. I know, weaksauce, but the combination works great. I also brought along my Fisheye 10.5mm F/2.8 for some artsy fartsy top down shots.
The prep work wasn't too bad, and I just had a blast. I got a little tired of taking pictures of all the athletes sitting around, so I tracked a few of the 49'er cheerleaders to give you guys a little extra to look at in this thread.
Checkout all the photos in the original story, which will link back to my photostream.
