Viking-Rams Game Photos

Post by Kansas Viking » Sat Aug 18, 2007 6:53 pm

Went to the first pre season game last week. Didn't get a lot of game pics but got a few good shots of the players coming into the stadium before the game and during warmups.

I went off and forgot my small camera bag, so I was stuck with taking just one lens. Ended up with the short lens so didn't get a lot of close shots. Photos can be found at this link. Vikings-Rams Game Photos

As usual, I will move this topic to the Announcement section in a few days.

Those are very clear shots inside the dome... I don't think everyone knows how wierd the lighting is in there.

The cheerleaders are now posing for you? :wink:

Thanks. That's just the 14-42 kit lens. I was very upset with myself. I kept thinking I had forgot something all the way to Minnesota. The night before the game during supper I remembered I forgot my small camera bag. I brought the large camera backpack, but no way would they let me into the Dome with that. Had to settle on one lens to attach and take in with me so I went with the small one. Still have a lot of learning to do with the camera, but it's coming along.

No kidding. That is absolutely the worst lighting. Made even worse by the fact that they wouldn't turn on most of the lights until game time. And then they still don't turn them all on. There was a guy beside me taking pictures and bemoaning the same thing. He couldn't get a decent shot to save himself. The majority of light during warmups was from bleed through on the Dome. But it was also pre season and they don't go all out for things untill the regular season starts.

Thing is, I'm starting to get used to the things. I have an 8x10 of Randy Moss in the road uni I took at Reliant Stadium and an 11x14 of Chris Hovan in the home uni at the Dome hanging on my wall here. I have to look up at those pics every once in a while to remember just what a good looking uniform those old ones were.

Great pics Mike. The only thing is I didn't see our favorite person in any of them.

Don't think I even saw here this time. I'm sure she was there, but with pre season and all, things are a little relaxed.

I can appreciate that. I would love to be there opening day however, with Shannon she was suppose to have her baby around the end of August so I would have had to take vacation from work to run the store and I gave up my tickets to Dusty. Wouldn't you know it Shannon was early and Dusty already had her airline tickets and hotel room. You will have to look her up at the game and make sure she is behaving herself. I forgot to ask where you moved to and I know we will not be that far away from you.

Sweet pics. You must have gotten in really early, huh?

Your seats are generally up high, right? Next game you go to can you take a pic of the staduim when its full and people are cheering (assuming there are things to cheer about thisseason of course :lol: )? I want to use a good pic for my desktoop background but can't find a cool one like that. I had an OK one before, but it was a small pic and not to clear when I enlarged it. Something similar to this :http://www.eseats.com/images/vikingsfield.jpg

Thanks, Mike!
