This is a quick lighting test shoot before Media Day.
Note this shoot was done at 4 p.m. under full Florida sun. I underexposed the ambient light and then
used strobes to light the player.. Stadium lighting was added in post.

These are awesome. I really need to learn how to use Flash/strobes. I have no idea even where to begin. Do you have any good resources (videos or reading) on how I can learn and what equipment is required in order to get these types of results for outdoor sports portraiture?

Thanks,
Carl

to be honest, not much into youtube videos.. Carl I have been shooting with strobes for about 30 years pretty much have learned along the way..
The strobes I use are Flashpoint/Godox 600s and 1200Pro.. I own about 7 lights in total, and they are all able
to shoot high speed synch which is how I shot these. If you ever have any questions feel free to pm me..

Nice work Michael. I like the color, especially the rich sky. The stadium lights def help sell the nighttime look.

I really like the colors and the first photo i think is the best. One thing that i think hurts the photos - and perhaps it is just me - but is the none cleats/socks. Unless this is how he plays, it takes away from the photo i think not being in full uniform. but, again, that is probably more me than anything.

I totally agree,b ut it was a last minute test shoot. Wanted to show the coach the type of shoot Iwas planning for media day. After they saw these I was hired.

Lighting is nice, but I am bothered by no socks and no cleats. I assume that you will crop those out.
