Stellar as always, Phil. All ambient light? BG look a bit dark making me think they may have been unobviously strobed. Some of you guys are so good, I can't tell anymore!

Loved #1 and 3.

Thanks for the kind words. I appreciate that.


Adding light made for better skin tones although the timing of shots is tougher.

its great to achieve iso 400, but it comes with a price of darker background. Photos still look good but i would prefer myself to shoot 7fps in high iso and get one good action shot. But thats only my opinion. Your photos are good and I can see now a huge difference when iso is kept at low values.

Great timing, & excellent shots!

The players really pop out of that darker background, & I wish I was allowed to use off-camera flash to get that effect. My home gym is "available darkness" & I've never been able to get even ISO 800 at f/1.8.

Great work. The lighting looks great. I wish I knew how to use lighting better.

Agree with others, nice shots.

If someone doesn't like darker bg they can add more lights for that.

Great indoor shots.

You seems to nail the wb on almost all shots, very good for indoor lighting.

Great work Phil! Got my first VB of this season on Weds and I am sure my results are going to be a joke relative to these. I don't shoot VB so its tough to even follow what the heck is going on let alone capture it well. Thanks for some inspiration beforehand!

Yaamon,

When I shoot ambient, the white balance is a challenge because of all the purple in this gym plus the usual artificial light problems. However, when I stobe off the white ceiling, I set the 1D Mark III on AWB and adjust only occasionally. None of these shots had any WB adjustment even though I shot RAW.

kenwood 33--All the bees were full power to get as far above ambient as possible and to have the shortest flash duration. I never shoot the bees at anything less that full power in a gym.

Scott,

Big K has a great primer on how to position yourself for photos of the various volleyball positions. I never try to follow the ball. Instead, I try to anticipate where the ball will go and lock my focus on that player and hope to shoot when the ball arrives. Experience and observation will help you know what is going to happen. Ambient is much easier to time for a burst of shots when the ball is coming, but as you know, gym lights are often awful. Good luck and I hope you get a gym with great light.

Phil
