I finally got a decent-ish camera and had a go at some football pictures at Marine V Whitby on Saturday.
I'm using a Nikon 1 J1 which is a lot better than my iPhone which now has some 2000+ non-league photos on it.
The Nikon It's not a sports camera. And I've only got the one lens at the moment.
So I'm not really trying to get images of the match action as such.
We've had a lot of photographers at Marine this season capturing the atmosphere at the club.
So I felt I'd have a go myself. The likes of Susan, Dave Brownlee, and Colin McPherson have inspired me to give photography a try.
I like to think I've got an eye for a good photo. It's just the execution that's the problem! I'm still getting used to the camera so it was a bit trial and error...
I still can't quite suss how to make these pages look good both on a desktop site and on an handheld device.
Will keep trying to sort that one the size of images issue.
Anyway - you get the general idea.
Here's young Lewis Codling speeding down the wing before putting in an inch perfect cross for Andy Owens to head home.
Look at that packed stand! There is no better place on earth than the Marine Travel Arena when the Mariners are winning.
will try to get some shots at tomorrow's night match.
Another photography challenge awaits!

If you fancy watching Marine we have a million home games on the bounce...
What are you waiting for?!
