The Swarovski 2013 Interclub Clay Shoot Photo Shoot

April 07, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

This was my first time photographing a Clay Shooting Tournament and it wasn't the easiest of shoots. I think I nailed a few but could improve on a few things.

First, I was very limited in where I wanted to be to get the get shot of them shooting. That sounds funny!  Of course I wanted to be staring down the barrel of the gun but I really didn't trust anyone that well with a gun.

Second, the lighting and the environment. I was forced to shoot from the side and rear wearing ear plugs. The shooting was mostly in the shade with light blasting through the trees and creating harsh shadows. Using a flash was not an option while shooting was taking place so I cranked the ISO.

The contest was very processional and sponsored by Swarovski Crystal. I used a Nikon D600 and a Nikon D300 switching back and forth. I do love the crisp photos that the D600 is capturing but as most people know it's not for action. I only used two lens and they were the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 and a Nikon14-24mm f/2.8. Both lens are excellent, fast and super sharp!

Take a look at some photos from the contest and please share any feed back below in the comments field. For booking please call 561-305-2045 or email Paul DiMarco at dimarcopaul@hotmail.com.
