Nice set there. I agree about moving out from under the hoop but you probably have someone asking for specific shots ect..... always tough to get what the people paying the bill want and being a "creative" photographer and getting those "WOW" shots.
I just grabbed a D3s as well and now I am having issues with WB all over again. Just when I thought I had all of my cameras dialed in at the venues I shot it has changed.
Paying gigs are what it's all about, but they do put a few hand-cuffs on us from time to time.
As for making the move to the D3s, there is no doubt that I am getting images in conditions where I NEVER would have thought about shooting before. The ISO is stupid good, but you are right on the money about learning everything all over again when it comes to re-learning the settings for venues where we shoot all the time.

All of these are nice - too bad you were stuck at such a high ISO but I don't think most people will see the tiny lack of sharpness
The D3S seems to be "the bomb" for sports
I'm new to shooting basketball and have been trying to leave the rim & net in view but maybe need to think tighter is better.
Thanks for sharing. Everyone loved the posters you showed in an earlier post.
Happy New Year.
Mr. Farver, the D3s is simply the best sports camera I have ever owned. So powerful.
Thanks for your nice comments on the photos. There's no doubt that things get a little muddy when the ISO gets so high, but I'm with you on the sharpness.
Basketball can be a real bear to shoot. Varying lighting conditions can make it a pain in the neck to get good clean shots, but I personally love the challenge. Love to see things in my pictures that fans in the stands never get to see -- like the hand across the face in number 8.
Keep shooting away. Looking forward to following your progress.
Nice work Rick, glad you're liking that D3s indoors...
Happy New Year Chris.
The D3s opens a whole new world when it comes to sports photography. Should have listened to you a year ago and bought it then....however, I must say by going through the other bodies, I have a whole new appreciation for the capabilities of this camera.
Need to chat with you about WB issues. May call you this afternoon if you are off work.
