Volleyball photos




Oh my gosh, I haven't posted in FOREVER! Life has really been getting in the way of the things I like to do! :) I have been busy taking pictures, though, which is a good thing. I've done some seniors, some sports, a little bit of everything really. These are some shots I took at a recent volleyball game for one of the volleyball moms. (We have a GREAT volleyball team this year - the girls are ranked 7th in state.) The lighting was tricky, it was a day game, and we have some big windows in the gym, but they're really high, so exposure was tough. These were shot in TV mode, settings everywhere, with my 85mm lens, mostly at 800 ISO and some at 1600 ISO, then run through Noiseware. I'm still having a hard time falling in love with my 85mm. I like it ok for these kind of shots, but I'm still struggling with it on portraits.

Anyway, CC always appreciated! Thanks for looking!

Great shots. Definitely can't tell that the light was tricky for you!

Don't feel too bad, I didn't love my 85mm for the longest time. Then one day it just clicked and now, LOVE it!! Pay attention to the distance you're away from your subject with this lens, it makes a difference.

these Vball shots are great, you got some great action and I don't see missing limbs and such.

I'm so not a sports photographer, but can say they look good to this untrained eye.
