I seemed to have more keepers tonight. Hopefully I improve each time. As always, please feel free to offer critique.

Those look great! I would be happy with those. I really like the last one, I have fun with those shots where the ball is in transit between players.

Now that you have a baseline of settings that work a bit better, you can experiment each game to see how different changes work for the venue you are shooting in.

Also, you can now experiment with different types of framing, whether you go really loose and then tighten up composition during post, or if you get "in their faces" with a longer zoom, etc. Once you get past the technical stuff like ISO, shutter speed, etc, you can have fun with these more creative things. :)

Here's the best shot I've taken in the last couple weeks. I can't wait until volleyball season starts so we can move to a different gym.

Yes, shooting in a new gym should be fun! Volleyball is fun too, but pretty tough, kids get all turned around and my timing is always off.

May I suggest the following edits to your pic, I LOVE her expression and I can see how the lighting is really problematic, but hopefully these help.

This assumes you have photoshop:

1. Use the level tool, and select the middle eyedropper. Click on on one of her gray sleeves.
2. Change the center slider value to 1.25. Hit okay.
3. Go to Hue/Saturation and set the saturation to +15.
4. Go to Unsharp mask: Amount = 20, radius = 5, threshold = 0
5. Go to Smart Sharpen: Gaussian blur, .2 radius at amount 100

These are pretty mild edits, but perhaps you like the changes, or can try different values. If you don't have PS, and instead Elements or LR, I am no longer going to be very useful. :D

Georgetown vs Marquette Feb 11 at Verizon Center. I do this once a year. This was my third time shooting basketball. So much fun.

Been covering SDSU basketball all season long. Here is a small album from their win over Nevada on Sunday, knocking the Wolf Pack out of first in the Mountain West. Small images and watermarks for newspaper reasons.

Pre-game stoic dunks.

SDSU head coach Steve Fisher always looks angry when yelling.

A few from the last game I shot last Wed. night. Nothing real great this game. I did play around with my old Sigma 17-50 F/2.8 under the basket to get a little wider than the Canon 24-70 F/2.8 II because of the crop factor of my 7DII.

Well done, Chadd! Nice set. Love the 1st capture, pre-game, where, IMHO, it appears as if the player is suspended in midair, almost as if he was floating in water (if that makes any sense) and of course, a great perspective.

Fabulous action! How cooler would it be if you could get them to fill the stands! (Bribe them, free tickets, free tuition, iPhones, I know.....what are you gonna' do!) They are wonderful captures! 8-)

Team isn't worth a crap this season and all the fair weather fans quit going to the games.

Low turn out last night, so I was able to shoot what I wanted, the prior game they told few, if any, of the players, and all about the crowds. :(
