    Not a great shot, and definitely not my favorite from the series. You'll probably see more later.

    Amazing shot Polvadis, the framing is nicely done.
    Fabulous shot Cincy

    worked my first NCAA College basketball games last night, one from women's game and one from men's.





    I set up two SB's triggered by PocketWizards which made all the difference.

    Nice! I don't know if its my monitor or what, but the bottom section of the image is completely black for me. If its supposed to be completely black, you could probably crop some of it off. If not, then I really need to calibrate this monitor!

    Nice landscape! Is the vignetting intentional? I would try to remove it if not, its a bit distracting in this shot IMO. Great shot regardless, though!

    Nice work! Were the speedlights bare, or did you use any type of diffuser? I looked through your flickr stream, a lot of those shots came out really good.

    Thanks Turo. They were bare, set to 1/4 power @24mm (wide) and had one set up at each corner of the court. I could shoot from half court to the nearest goal to me which was pretty good. I had them each on stands set as high as they could go angled down. I may try some shoot through umbrellas next time just to see what it does but to be honest, I think practicing my timing shooting basketball players will do me more good than tweaking the lights . With remote flashes, you only get one shot each time.

    Very true, that's the thing about sports, you can't just ask them to "hold that pose for a minute", lol. I would try some simple diffusers a bit, only so you can try and soften the shadows a bit.

    It is extremely dark, and may not even be visible in JPEG. I disliked the shot for that reason, wanted to get more of her other leg.

    How about this one :

    Is that possible? Woulnt umbrellas be a huge distraction not to mention be an obstruction for the fans? Aside from photography, sports is my life and I dont recall ever seeing umbrellas or softboxes courtside!

    I would try some diffusors though, because the harsh shadows are very distracting, atleast in the two samples you posted here.
