I have a couple of advantages in this particular gym. 1st - It's small 2nd - There are raised platforms behind both goals that allow me to get the strobe really close to the ceiling for some great bounce.
Thanks for the replies and I'm gonna stay at it. Pee-wee tournament Sat. in the same gym.
kwhitt, these are very nice and clean, I intend on using ab's to bounce for hs wrestling, and this is pretty much the same look I am aiming at. I was told that I could not use them in the manor I invision, which is to just have them fill a little and gain a little lattitude in reducing down from maximum iso. I was thinking I would achieve the look I want which is a natural ambient light look, not strobed look. I was planning on trying to achieve this with iso 800-1600 and shutter around 200-250, whatever max is with my trigger/ab combo.
If you don't mind, what settings were you using to achive this beautiful balance of strobe and ambient(or so it seems there is ambient still around), and what f stop were you using. Should you be so curteous to share your knowledge, I thank you in advance... and please keep sharing, I am inspired that I can achieve the desired look I want.
As mentioned in the thread you posted, keep in mind that strobes don't work to "fill in shadows." The only scenario I can think of that still wouldn't applicable to 99% of sports photography is to use it for fill flash when shooting outside.
However, you're shooting inside and you want the strobes to provide a new light source that overpowers the ambient light.
Many sports photographers dial in their strobes so if they take a shot without the strobes, they get a complete dark, or nearly dark frame. I don't have an example handy, but I'm sure someone has one where their strobe didn't fire to show you.
Here is an example of possible strobe locations. Keep in mind that not every possibility is up here.
