OHSUR 2009

The UPA Oregon High School Ultimate Championships were held here in Corvallis yesterday – and, fortunately, I was able to shoot most of the games.

A full tournament write up can be found here.  The gallery I posted for the players can be found here.

As for the photography?  Well – it was the 50D + the 70-200mm f/4 L.  And I have to admit – I’m beginning to really like those 6+ fps.
