p.1 #1 · Basketball last game!


A little different post than showing peak action. The fans have been great this season and I wanted to capture some of the emotion they bring to the school. Chris and Scott has posted some really cool fan emotion and that motivated me to shoot and post some of these.

Glad to see the stands packed. I'd suggest that Basketball is a vertical shooting game. There is too much on each side taking away from the players. Looks like decent light there. Your WB is very good. I'd drop the blacks down a bit to get some extra contrast.

Matt Thanks, The school website is only formatted wide, so I shoot in landscape 95% of the time. If they need an image in portrait I crop it that way. The lights were just upgraded, most of these are 6400, 640 , 2.8 thanks for the comments.

Chris, we usually fill half the court, this was a playoff game, so it was packed!! No more basketball for me till next year, unfortunately!! Just got the setting s down for the new lights!

I am in the same boat, the school wants horizontal for the web, but the verticals are the ones that sell. So at half I chimp to see how many Horizontals I have and grab a couple more in the second half if I need to.

For the longest time I shot vertical, then went horizontal when the paper changed to tabloid format which is best suited for Square or Horizontal photos. However, the past couple of games I've gone back to shooting vertical because I kept cutting off too many hands and missing the ball (because the wall was too close to the court with a 70-200)

Shane, yes a sigma 15 2.8. in my opinion it is sharper than the Nikon 16mm and cheaper!
Trevor, I agree, at this school they don't seam to care about cropping off hands and feet, it seems to be all about the face and eye contact, or names on back of jerseys.
