Being strobed, I'm surprised at the ball blur. How about providing information on your lighting setup?

:D It's ghosting. Too much ambient light. :( Strobes set as high and as far from the court as possible so not to distract the players. AB 1600's set at 3/4 power. Going to have to try them a full power next time. But I don't mind some ball blur. ;-)a

I see now, you have AB1600s. They have the slowest flash duration of the trio (AB400, AB800 and AB1600), plus the fact you didn't have them at full power, the duration wasn't short enough to stop the ball motion.

Nice work though.

3/4 power will freeze. I've actually shot at 1/4 power and froze all movement. ;-)a Problem here is that too much ambient light hit the sensor, and thus caused the ghosting. :( And actually the more power given to the light, the shorter the duration is. ;-)a

I thought about the cyber syncs for my b800's but the TT1 TT5 just came out when I was looking. I sync easily at 1/500th using a TT1 and PW Plus IIs or when using the TT1 TT5 combo up to 1/2000th. I prefer about 1/800th - 1/1000th. If you know anyone to borrow a set from it is well worth it.

Hi Dwarren,

I want to see more attacking shots from you!If you include your last vball post, you have 7 shots of girls passing/digging the ball and 3 of them attacking. Attacking shots are harder to get, but they tend to be far more dramatic. Where are you positioned on the court? If this is standard, mid level high school girls volleyball, most of the sets are going to the outside (left side) of the court. Position yourself across from the outside hitter (thus, right side of the court) so you can catch the girl's face while she swings. I like your posts, I never strobe so I like to see posts where people do.

out of curiosity, why use strobes if you shoot at 1/200th anyways? I think I can get as high as 1/800 in a poorly lit HS gym without strobes...

I use high shutter speeds to get rid of motion/blur in shots.

Yeah, but lets see you get flesh tones that look anywhere near as natural as these shots.

Nice results. A couple of adjustments and you will be rocking. I'll let you answer the post about why 1/200.
