Once each January, the best teams of Wichita play the best teams from the suburbs. The games are held at Wichita State University to accommodate the crowds. Unfortunately, this year there was the threat of freezing rain so attendance was poor.

Nice set as always. It must have been a thrill for the kids to play in such environment. To bad Mother Nature didn't cooperate to let more people attend the event.

Phil, such a wonderful set! Your captures are extraordinary! I suspect that, at times, we take them for granted, and when we view the product of your adept skills, we just accept such a high level of artistry almost as common captures, but they are so much more than that. Way to keep the bar high for most of us. #1 - like the overall arena view, #3, #4 & #5 - very nice action, #6 - peak dunk action (IMHO), #8 - my favorite. Did you shoot #2 through #8 in "M" ("MANUAL") mode, utilizing "A" ("AUTO") ISO? Just curious. (Just so you don't get too cocky, level your horizons in; #3, #6 and #7.) You are a photographic scholar......and a gentlemen! (<-- But don't get cocky about that either.) 8-)

Mike,

Typically, for basketball, I shoot manual. I'll take a few shots during pregame and adjust the exposure for the skin tones and to get a few "blinkies" on the white uniforms. In most gyms the light levels do not vary a great deal and I don't want to expose for black uniforms on one shot and white uniforms the next. That's why I don't use auto exposure in the gym. If a gym had a dark corner, then I would use auto ISO but generally that's not a problem.

BTW, the lighting at this venue was strongly directional-from above down. That's why the player's forehead is overexposed when they are looking up and there are often shadows on the uniforms. The light comes down from the bright lights that you can see on pic #1. I've adjusted for that somewhat in post but the IQ isn't as good as one would hope for shooting at ISO 3200.
