A recent match at a school with old fashioned lighting fixtures. Everything is 1/640 sec, f/2.8 or 3.2, and ISO 12,800 using a 70-200. Note the ball has slight motion blur here compared to 1/1000 sec.

I agree. Great captures. Did you use your 1DX to capture these images?

No. This was a situation where I had to shoot a volleyball triangular match after work. It was at a school I'd never seen before. The matches started at 5 and I got there about 5:20. Strobes were not practical because of the time and the layout of the venue, so high ISO (12,800) was required and even then the shutter speed was slowed from my normal 1/1000 to 1/640. The images show some noise and loss of detail. Strobes would have been wonderful at this dark gym.

Everything was shot with the 1D X and the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II. Love the X!

I do like #7 with the ball compression. Very nice!! Yeah I can tell that the shutter speed was low due to the blur in the ball.

Very with some motion blur of the ball, probably better than at higher ISO to get the higher SS.

I will keep that in mind for similar venues.

Nice set (pun intended). My only critique is that the bump by the libero seems not to be straight. I could be fooled by the background, though.

I just didn't want to have the ISO go above 12,800.

NetJohn,

The libero was leaning. The background slightly outside the crop made that apparent but you can get some idea from the horizontal lines in the curtain background. I wrestled with the idea of straightening her to vertical but in the end, I just used the actual level for my crop.

Czbrat271,

Enjoy the X. This is a great tutorial. Contact me if I can help.

Terrific images even when shooting at 12,800 ISO. The 1DX is a terrific camera. I'm going to shoot my granddaughter's match this week. I would be happy if mine came out half as good as yours. I'm on shooting a 7d so I expect more noise. Again, terrific images!

Phil,

I always notice the eyes pop in a lot of your pictures, do you specifically do something in light room to make them pop like they do? I feel like the eyes in 1, 4, and 6 look more defined than some of the others.


Gripped Canon 7D with a 70-200mm f/2.8, nifty fifty & a 18-55mm IS, what should I buy next?

Nothing was done for the eyes on this set. On shots #1 and #6, the player's wide open eyes were raised up toward the lights on the ceiling and that helped get some added impact. BTW, I have no problem with enhancing the irides or boosting the exposure of the sclera a bit (0.30 stops typically), I just didn't do it to any of the photos here.

I see the same thing with some of my pictures (eyes up are brighter/pop more), but I feel like yours are even brighter. I'll post some of mine tonight. Do you do anything else in post (Heavy sharpening, NoiseNinja, etc.) that might affect this?
