p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 2012 HS Wrestling Mullen vs Arvada


Shot a wrestling meet last Wednesday. When I walked in there was red everywhere. Red mats, red uniforms, red banners on the walls, redwood bleachers, and cycling lights. Thankfully, I was strobing the meet, but with all the red, to keep the skin tones halfway normal, I could not boost any vibrancy or saturation at all. All of these are 1DmkII and a 70-200 2.8 with 2 AB800's bounced off the ceiling.

Nice work! I don't think most people realize how challenging it is to shoot wrestling. In my neck of the woods, varsity is always under a single lamp, so flash/strobe is the only way to get DR that is manageable. Then the wrestlers never show their faces! Or if they do, it's facing the wrong direction.

That is a LOT of red!

WOW....that is a lot Carl. You did a good job managing it. They should make it mandatory to include a photographer on the design teams for lighting and color schemes for gyms.

Carl,

Were you using AWB or flash for the white balance? I know that there is a lot of red caused by stuff in the gym in these pics but I've found that using "flash" for the white balance tends to put more red in the pics.

Try doing combat sports. Same crappy lighting but no flash allowed.

Frank, Thanks!

Fish, I was using the flash WB preset. I like doing a custom WB but I left my grey card at home.

Actually, I have done MMA years ago, while on camera flash is not allowed, they do allow strobe depending on the organization.
