Tips & Tricks – Provo Sports Photography

I love reading photography magazines and learning new things.  Today I was looking back at an old Popular Photography magazine from February of 2011, and found an article called “Fast Action”.  It is about The favorite lenses of sports photographer, Gabe Rogel. He shoots with Canon lenses like us.

His favorites are:

– Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM (This is his workhorse)

– Canon EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye (ultra wide angle)

– Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM (go to for zoom)

We have and love the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM and we absolutely love it.  It is expensive but it does so much.  I love it for sports photography, family photography, portraits, etc.  If you can afford it and if you don’t mind some extra weight, this lens is awesome! Below are a few pictures we took with this lens.
