While looking for something sporty to shoot yesterday morning, I found out that we had here in Québec City a Gaelic Football Team and that they were hosting the Eastern Canada 2016 Tournament.
Nice I though, but may all the Irish readers of this post please forgive my total ignorance, but before yesterday I had never heard of the sport, in fact I had to look it up on Wikipedia to figure it out !
The Canadian league is still quite small and the sport not so well known here, really nothing compare to the popularity it has in Ireland. So no big crowds and some
very nice access for the photographers, I ended up spending the whole day there.
They also had a demonstration match of hurling too, now that's a super rapid sport, this little ball really does flies fast and far, quite hard to keep up with it at first.
Oh yeah, the technical details:
X-T1 + XF50-140 +XF1.4TC,
Drive on CH (8 fps),
Focus on Zone (3x3 grid),
RAW, LR6.6.1 + NIK
