2013 Year in Review – Sports Photography

Hey, I hope you have had a great year in 2013. This year for me has been an interesting one, with more events coming on board, more improvements in my techniques and the addition of a few more events.

Here’s some stats for you to think about:

  • I have been to 35 events.
  • Taken 48,413 photographs.
  • September was the month when I took the most photos 15,110, January being the least 580.
  • 22,389 were with just one of my lenses.
  • 10mm, 24mm, 70mm and 200mm being the most popular focal distances.
  • 1/800sec being the most used shutter speed.
  • f/4.0 was the most used aperture.
  • ISO 100 most used at 9306 photos with ISO 12800 being used least at 8 photos.

Rather than ramble on I’ll let the photographs do the talking… so here’s one great photograph from all 35 events! (plus a few more)
