Basketball pictures





These are a few pictures from last night's game. I have a love/hate relationship with our gym. I love it because I can sit right down next to the court, and I hate it because the lighting STINKS! I took over 100 pictures, and most were too soft to save. These were all shot in Tv mode, ISO 1600, first one was ss 1/400, f1.8, the next two were ss 1/250, f2.5. All were done with 50mm lens, wb set to fluorescent, cropped and sharped in PSE4. HHCC Please! Thanks for looking.

The action shots are great! There's no such things as a well-lit gym...at least in my experience!

Gyms are so hard to shoot in! I really struggle with basketball photos, too. I think you did a great job with these though!

not much help here, especially since i didn't do much better than you. i finally understand about the lighting, it really DOES stink at gyms. one thing i got from the MB @ 2peas was to leave the WB in auto and then change it later in PS (if shooting in RAW). to me, that's one less thing to worry about.
tfs!
