p.1 #1 · first time shooting wrestling !


the gym is called the cave, aptly named, ambient was 2.8, 640, iso 12,800. i added a On camera flash, as this was a quad meet, and there was no place to mount the speedlights and actually loin them at the mat. I picked 640 as a shutter but also experimented at 500. On camera flash was set to manual, 1/32 power up to 1/4 power. looking at my histogram and my lcd I thought i was getting decent exposures. Also set a cab with and expo disc. All images were cool and underexposed. Added exposure, levels, Wb tint, crop , NR and straight in post. is wrestling usually shot at 500-640? Any good suggestions to speed light set up? From my own experience, I will up the flash power a touch. thanks for the feedback.

In general, these crops are way too loose, there are some awkward body parts (toes and fingers) cut off, and the horizons are totally jacked up. The action isn't terrible--I especially like #4--but they are all just too loose.

Frankly, I'm very confused about whether you used flash, didn't use flash or just what you did from an exposure standpoint.

From the looks of the pic and the lighting in this gym , with on-camera flash, start at ISO 500, manual mode, SS@250, F4, ETTL mode for the flash or whatever the equivalent is for Nikon. Take some pics and adjust the ISO accordingly on the the results that you get..

+1 on Scott's comment about them being too loose and the horizons. Tighten the crops.

I must have grabbed the Non cropped ones, sorry. I used flash on all of them, but I didn't want to overpower ambient but have the flash 'help" ambient and to lower the ISO. I set the ambient without the flash, then slowly added the flash power till my histogram and exposure were close to even and a touch over, by lowering the ISO. I also wanted the flash at a lower power so the recycle times are quicker so I kept it under 1/4 power. I also had a diffuser and a modified snoot to direct the flash toward the mat and not to bother the scoring table. I sat just under the scoring table. Not happy with the results. Would you have upped the ISO a stop or 2? Up the flash power? Or totally replace ambient with the flash? I appreciate the feedback, and I see what you mean by cutting toes and limbs, Used the 70-200 2.8. Will give me something to change next time out.

5 do you try and include ref when a pin?

I think a ref adds something to the image every once in a while if its a close match.
