this was our last home game and since im not able to follow our team out to south Carolina i tried a lot of new things last night mainly a higher shutter speed. i tried going up to 1/640 but i felt like with the noise it was producing and the images not being perfectly in focus every since time or very sharp at f2 i went down to 1/500 which is an upgrade from what i normally shot in the past which was 400

i was not as happy with the photos i got last night than i have got in the past. i think it was because there just was not as much action under the basket as the final score was 90-48.

some of these were accidentally shot at 1.8 because of the wheel on the back of the 7d i now realize that i can use the lock switch so i dont change fStop on accident while shooting. i intended to shoot them at f2

settings: f2 (sometimes f1.8) 1/500 ISO 2500

I think you have great captures!! They look a tad underexposed.

yea i didnt want to go any higher with the ISO because it just seemed like the noise was so much that i wouldnt be able to remove it (even though i dont know how :( ) because i was shooting jpeg. i didnt want to lose too much sharpness due to focus not being perfect with that 50/1.8 but im seriously looking into that 1.4 in hopes that it will be a little cleaner and just overall a better performing lens for shots like these as well as occasion portraits. also looking into the 135L but im not sure how i would use it for basketball as much as other sports and video work

im not 100% sure if the way im looking at what i have and what i want is right. not very advanced with photography since i havent been doing it for even a full year yet, but i have been doing video work for a long time

.. because i was shooting jpeg

BURN HERETIC! :mad:

Just kidding. You should really shoot in RAW format, it preserves much more data so post processing is made much easier. You can then correct the exposure (and reduce noise)

I second what Avarus was saying in shooting in RAW. Also look into noise ninja to use with photoshop. I wasn't a believer until I finally gave it a shot and it works very nicely. Great captures though.
