These are truly outstanding ... the net-cutting picture is going to be in that kid's house forever.

There's just nothing like a great college/pro black sky basketball background. It's like a tall, cool glass of water after wandering around in the desert of ugly, ill-lit high school gyms for months!

I second that. Love the black background. Great work my friend.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but as basketball season is starting up, I did a search and am happy to have found these.

Curious where you are positioned for these photos - kneeling/sitting on floor few feet from baseline near corner?

I may shoot some high school games so looking for advice among these threads and these really are excellent images.

Sitting at baseline...near basket...University of Dayton Arena...new lighting is incredible...you will never get near the same results at typical high school gym...have tried for years.

You can't take a bad picture in that arena.

Much success

Really inspiring. I am trying to take photos at my son's HS gym, and as you said they won't come out like these for more than one reason.

Question: I see you are primarily using a 70-200 2.8 and that's what I was shopping for. But my Canon R7 is crop sensor, so my effective min is 112. Do you think that's going to be problematic and I should get a lower zoom range?

Thanks!

I would have to agree that the gym lighting in high schools, while better than decades ago, still isn't up to par. I did better when I was able to use auxiliary lights. I don't think I could get away with using those lights these days - people would probably protest the lights going off.

The most likely action is going to be under the basket or above the basket - if there's a balcony.
