My daughter was performing at a cheerleading comp this weekend, first time shooting cheerleading. It was tough! So much going on, I was never really sure where I should be locking on to and I missed some good stunts, though I think I caught the one with the most air. Not to mention typical gym lighting.

Shot with T3i and 80-200/2.8 combo, aperture wide open and shutter in the 1/400-640 range, used auto ISO for the intermediate settings (2500-3200). Shoot the first 20 frames in raw until I realized I forgot my memory card case with my other three cards in it... Set it to fluorescent WB and changed to JPEG to salvage my day.

Any feedback welcome!

#2 - This is a comp of two images to provide some idea of how much air she got.

Really great job capturing the action. They turned out nice considering the high iso needed.
#2 and #6 were my favorite

Thanks Jemhead, it was definitely a learning experience!

Wondering if I should have posted this in the sports thread instead?

No because cheerleading is not a sport!!!! ha ha ha just kidding. Sorry I had to you left it open. :)


The pictures came out good! I think the second one might have been better if you got the base in there with the girls in the air. That would help with the perception of how high she is. I also like #5 because of how you were able to capture the facial expression...

Oh trust me I saw the discussion about that... :D

The second one caught me completely off guard, I didn't expect her to get as much air as she did. She was just flying all over the place!

Thanks for the comments. :)

Gyms are tough. A trick someone told me ( I havent tried it) is meter the gym before hand. Set your camera in manual. And get your exposure set. Using a high shutter speed (since you are freezing action) and this way you can check this histogram after a shot and just tweak the iso (since you said you maxed out on Aperture. Made sense on paper lol. I like the last shot..I would have like the guys head out of the shot but I know its tough to move around in there!

I had it set to Auto ISO so I could get access to the intermediate ISO settings i.e. 1250, 2500 - which aren't accessible manually on a T3i. For the most part it stayed on 3200. It actually underexposed often, but I wasn't willing to push it up to 6400 (I had set the limit in auto to 3200).

I tried to stay fairly low-key. First time at one of these things and let's just say some of the parents were quite excited about seeing their kids. Doors opened at 11:30am for 12:00pm show start and the lineup started at 9am... :confused:

Thanks for the comments! :)
