very much so... also, when shooting profiles (we'll use the first image) try to not shoot whats behind them; dont leave so much dead space behind the player. its better to see where theyre looking than where they were, ya know?

Don't forget the rule of thirds. You are not taking portraits, so the subject matter should not be centered.

That's kind of why I let the player take up 2/3 of the picture and let the bunker frame the right 1/3 of the picture.

Also, keep in mind that the "rule of third" isn't a 'rule'. It is a layout.

The rule of thirds is like your standard 8.5x11 sheet of paper to a legal pad. It often just 'looks right', but it is not always the tool for the job. If aligning something the the rule of thirds does not improve the image in your eyes, then ignore it.

A far better rule to follow is to consider all elements of your photo. Does an element enhance the photo? If so then it belongs in the image. If it doesn't enhance the photo, or you can offer no reason for it to be there, then it does not belong in the photo and should be avoided. What elements do YOU want in the photo? What works for you?

a zoom lens will help you for sure, I shoot with the 55-250mm and it works really well for snake action and breaks.

Dont be afraid to take a bunch of photos and play with the settings, sometimes you might just surprise your self.

All the advice so far is good. However, you really do need to get a telephoto to proceed here. Even with a 70-200, I'm typically 10 feet away from the subject...

Thanks for the advice? Is the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III worthy of $100 for a telephoto?

A friend of mine had a 75-300, and I was never terribly impressed with it. I had a hard time getting sharp photos with it. For $100, I think that is really your only option though.

I'd definitely consider the 55-250 over the 75-300. Personally, I've been using a 70-300 IS USM for the past few months and it's a great mid-end lens. Looking back, I would have just saved up a little more for a used 70-200 f4 L, but I'm pretty confident that's a little out of range for what you are willing to spend. A used 70-300 IS USM should run about $350 used and it's a better buy than a NEW 55-250 or 75-300.

Just my thoughts. I think for $100, it's kind of your only option, but I'd save up a tad and get something that will get you better shots.
