These are really nice... just a little tip.... subtract or desaturate a little green and the darker complexioned guys skim will look a bit more natural under these lights. Small tweak. They look good but it the green adjust is now is part of my workflow for stuff shot under these kinds of lights. Its mostly showing in shot 1, but also in the floors of the last shot too.

Great stuff.... love to shoot D1 ball....

Its by knowing and mastering all the rules that you learn which ones you can break.

Thanks for the tip! I just tested it on those images and it looks better. I made a lightroom preset for those lights so (hopefully) I won't forget. It's been tough to get the color balance right on the darker skinned guys with the white uniforms, especially since I shoot on jpeg for a print deadline. I've gotten it mostly right in camera but little tweaks like that certainly help.

Here are a few from the annual "City Game". Every year Pitt plays the Duquesne Dukes at the PPG Paints Arena (Civic Arena before new venue). It's suppose to be a neutral site but is only 3 blocks away from Duquesne University. Pitt is a very young team and was doing well until they lost to Niagara last night. 18 turnovers will do that. Been a Pitt for 40 years & very optimistic about the next few years.

Change of pace, there are always halftime shows, so I thought I would post the extracurricular activity during basketball games. :)

These guys were very entertaining for a halftime show.. Usually spend halftime in the media room so I don't get to see many shows. I was too scared to leave my spot at this venue so I happened to catch it. They definitely got some serious height.

Was asked to cover the PITT/WVU game for the paper. My editor got back to me to say they were limited with space & I would have to shoot from a "camera sling" on the concourse level. Told me I didn't need to bother since it was 1 hour 40 mins each way & photos wouldn't be worth the trip. I decided to go anyway, at worst I got to watch a game that cost $50 per ticket.

This was my view from the concourse. Shot all the way out @ 200mm.

Spoke to the media director and he told me if I saw any open spots on the floor after the game started I could move down from the concourse. Luckily for me there was a no-show and was able to move down to the floor & only missed the first 3 minutes. Sometimes it pays to go, getting the credentials around the neck is the hardest part.

This is Sagaba Konate. He is a junior at WVU & with this block he became the all time leading shot blocker for the University. He has most of this season and all of next, so he has the chance of making the record very difficult to break in the future. That is if he doesn't turn pro after his this year. He will be in the NBA, just a matter of when.
