Flash is a tough one to do right with night football since there is often such a drastic dropoff between flash and ambient, which in turn affects color balance for things not hit by flash.

What happens if you boost the ISO to help balance that dropoff?

ajaffe, who are you talking to? I think the colors in my photos are true and elrey said he was not shooting with flash, so I'm not sure who your comments are addressed to.

For me, I like to try to keep my ISO at 800 or so when I'm shooting night football with flash. That seems to work for me.

Pretty sure that was for you. He's talking about the huge gap between what is lit and what is not as far as color goes.

Different strokes for shooters and viewers, but I much prefer the unflashed shots. elrey2375's shot may be a bit over exposed to some eyes, I think it boils down to PP preferences vs. lighting/exposure decisions.

When you're shooting at higher ISO it's always better to over rather than under. I don't think my shot is over, nothing is clipping.

Agreed completely. Its brightness is a style thing, not a quality thing.

Going high on ISO, right to the edge of clipping is the best way to deal with noise for sure. I usually pull it back down a bit in post, but again, that's just my style.

I'm with Elrey and hate flash in football photos. Especially if the flash overpowers the shot..

Is there any possibility that a strobe could be mounted in an elevated position and angled downward, like in a stadium? I understand that not all fields would be able to facilitate this but most still have a decently high announcers box that would allow good coverage through the middle half of the field. Granted, not every occasion (or most) you are photographing HS football would this be appropriate but in the event of a big game or a higher profile player is could result in some decent images.

Just a though, if I were allowed to use strobes then I would at least consider it, if for nothing else then for the sake of experimentation.


5D MKII / 7D and some lenses. Some flashes too.

Nicely done OIDebbie, is your flash mounted low and to the left of the lens? Color is great, density is very good and images are sharp. Maybe I like them because I like making my own light a lot of the time too. . . . . good shooting to you.

I think people here are missing the point. Flash photography at games in are area has been banned as the players were complaining that the flash was affect there vision. Just imagine going up for that ball when all of a sudden someone zaps you with a flash.
