Shot two strobes last time, bounced off the wall...
https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=795611

Set up with 4 today, higher up and bounced off the ceiling. Wasn't until the men's game started to feel like getting a hang of it. Trainer pointed out how in his seat it looked like there was a flash on the backboard - it was reflecting off from his angle but nowhere else, strange because the strobes were not pointed in that direction at all...made adjustments, still happened. If I shoot in this gym again will make adjustments during initial set up (one strobe picture will be posted later).

When finally figuring it out the 4 strobe setup allowed for more movement of course, shoot from anywhere with where they were. Also evened things out easier. One thing I don't like is in the previous setup it had the background a bit darker - 4 lit the entire gym and stands so means the players don't stick out as much.

Started with the IIn but haven't used it in so long switched back to the III at half time of the first game. 70-200 IS 2.8 on all shots.

#8 - Finger rolling it - was up there to get a dunk, the couple I got sucked as the net or rim or his arms were in the way (this and another player).

This was the scene in all four corners - one side had extension cords hanging down - this side had power packs instead. Did not want to clamp them to the side, wanted them up higher and out of the way of anyone milling around. Stands strapped to the railing/fence with two straps each.
