Yeah, you've linked the photos that are on your desktop. Your browser can see that location, but we can't. (C:\Users\Carmine & Ann\Desktop\vacation\b​ball5)

First problem, was using Av mode. One set of uniforms is going to be dark and the other set light. Depending on how your metering mode was set, you might have to constantly be changing Exposure Compensation. Much easier to shot Manual under these circumstances. No way of knowing what kind of light standard your gym had, but I would suggest ISO 3200, f/2.8, 1/500 as a starting point.

Manual, ISO 3200, 1/500 f/2.8 should be a good start (as jacuff posted). Check your WB and shoot in RAW for best results.

Same for me too.

Most of the high school gyms in my area require ISO 3200, f/2.8 and 1/400 sec. One was so dark I had to shoot at ISO 6400 with f/stop between 2.0 - 2.5 (135L f/2lens).

If I were you, I would stand at the baseline on one side or the other and shoot the action as it comes to you. Shoot tight, crop tighter.

Good luck.

I wanna move. My local HS gym is one full stop darker than that. Choices are f/2 primes (what I use) or Nikon D3s.

Hey all,

I agree with the above quote. I shoot 1/1000th or 1/800th, F2.2, ISO 2500-3200 using a 7D with either 85mm 1.8 or 50mm 1.4 No motion blur AT ALL, good DOF, as well.

To me, it doesn't look like a WB issue, per se. In the menu where you adjust the color that defines what the WB does, (sorry, I don't remember the menu name for it off hand) needs adjusting. The pictures look like the have a tad yellowish cast to them.

I usually shoot ISO 1600 1/250 2.8 on my 40D with the sigma 70-200 , last time out with the 50d shot ISO 2500 1/340 2.8 with the 24-70L and had great results.
