You know when SU’s nationally ranked Men’s basketball team is playing well when Jonny Flynn is going down the court after an SU basket with a huge smile on his face celebrating with his teammates. One of the best point guards in college and the Big East conference, Jonny Flynn makes the Orange go. Scoring and distributing the basketball with confidence, grace and a love of the game not always seen these days in big time college sports. It is as much fun to watch him play as he has playing it.
Attending the SU-Notre Dame game gave me another opportunity to use the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 AF-S VR Zoom Lens and it did not disappoint. Under bright television lights, I was able to use shutter speeds from 1/320 to 1/640 at f/2.8 and ISO ratings from 400 to 800. Last year I barely could muster 1/125 at f/5.6 using an ISO of 1600 when I blogged about Jonny Flynn’s teammate, Paul Harris under the same lighting conditions at the same 200mm focal length.
