shootout: pro with amateur gear vs amateur with pro gear: digital photography re


mango street lab put together a fun video where two individuals, one a pro and one an amateur, shoot the same model and compare results. the catch? the pro is shooting with a kit costing around $500 used: a canon t3i and 18-55mm kit lens, plus a 40mm f2.8 pancake. the amateur on the other hand is using a kit costing nearly 10x as much: a canon 5d mark iv and 35mm f1.4l ii.in the end, both photographers get great shots – it turns out the amateur had more skill than he let on. despite this, the point is clear: gear alone can't make up for actual photographic skill – something that comes largely from time spent behind the lens. and a good photographer can usually make strong images, regardless of the camera used.now stop reading about gear and go shoot! it's the best way to improve.

timeline of key moments in british open golf championship


southport, england — a look at some of the anniversaries this year at the british open:150 years ago (1867): old tom morris captured his fourth and final title at prestwick at age 46. he remains the oldest player to win the open, and he was the oldest to win any major for just more than a century until julius boros won the 1968 pga championship at 48. morris had a two-shot lead over willie park sr., who also was going after his fourth title. both closed with a 58 and morris won by two shots.___125 years ago (1892): in the first open contested over two days and 72 holes, english amateur harold hilton closed with 72-74 on the final day at muirfield — the low score in the third and fourth rounds — for a three-shot victory over amateur john ball, sandy herd and hugh kirkaldy. it still is the o






column: massachusetts firefighter is headed to the masters


the u.s. mid-amateur typically signals the end of the golf season for matt parziale.not long after the tournament is over — usually early for parziale, considering he had never won a match in three previous tries — he puts the clubs away and falls into a routine schedule as a firefighter on ladder 1 for the brockton fire department in massachusetts.his weekends are more likely to be spent on the ski slopes of new hampshire than the fairways of thorny lea golf club."if this didn't happen, i wouldn't play again," parziale said.

fire could face big, hostile crowd in next u.s. open cup match


the u.s. open cup struggles to get love and attention from american soccer fans so it's no surprise that it's completely off the radar for average sports fans.however, what the single-elimination knockout competition provides is rare among american sports. amateur teams can qualify for the tournament and face off against pro teams. minor league teams can take on their big brothers from major league soccer. upsets happen and fun match ups like d.c. united taking on amateur team christos fc can create stories that typically only occur in movies.this is similar, in a way, to how amateur golfers can qualify for the u.s. open via sectional tournaments. however, these are teams, not individuals. collecting and organizing a good team is difficult enough for a regular adult league, but think of wh
