    Hi everyone

    Today my kid went to his first floorball (is that what it is called in english?) game, I couldn't miss this opportunity to get some experience in indoor sports action shooting :D
    I took alot of pictures and I thought I would share two of them. The F3 performed quite ok I think, the lighting was sufficient (although more wouldn't hurt/and or faster lens of course)
    I began shooting at 1/250 f5-5.6 and iso 800. I then realised that I needed to go higher so I changed to iso 1600 and 1/400. I deliberately underexposed a little to gain some speed.
    I used the Sony SEL 55-210 which I haven't been using that much yet but I found it to perform as expected. Did not have a lot of focus hunting, although it often vere just a millisecond wrong in focus which could have been avoided if I would have used a higher aperture (but then sacrifice the shutterspeed) Maybe try that next time :D

    I also had the time to shot some pics of the landscape. Enjoy :D (the first pic is on my son with bluestick and is the second person from the left and the other is of his teammates)

    I really like the rich blue and gold colours on the landscapes, wonderful. I think we call them junior-indoor-hockey over here... (we don't have any ice rinks so everyone knows that indoor hockey is played on a court floor).
