British Trampoline National finals NIA Sunday 24.7.10.

Sunday 25th July.Off to cover the British Trampoline Nationals at the NIA in Birmingham.
Traveling by train.Decided to take two lenses and two camera bodies. Settled on the 200 f2 and the 70 -200 2.8 along with two D3’s bodies. Hopefully inside the podium the 200 telephoto should be sufficient to fill the frame.
Using the ThinkTank Photo Glass Taxi bag along with the Artificial Intelligence for the Macbook Pro. Twenty minute walk from New Street Station to the NIA so far so good.Seems easier than the roller.Shooting at the NIA usually is fine with the following meter readings 1600 asa with a shutter speed of 500s.I chose to shoot with a faster shutter speed and pushed to ISO to 2500.This gave me a working shutter speed of 1250 at f2.

NTGA’s James Higgins took his fourth successive Men’s British Trampoline Title with City of Liverpool’s Emma Smith taking the Female Championships.
