I shot a couple high school football games last season and an administrator asked for a shot for his office. I gave him 20 or so images to choose from and he selected this one (the play itself was very significant):

Here is a 100% crop to evaluate over-sharpening ect.

Thats sharp for f2.8, great job. Can the exposure be raised in post? I would try that and repost.

How do i see EXIF on these? Or can i? If these were RAW files orignally and I was using Lightroom, i would bump the exposure a little and keep black levels around 10 - 12. You could alternatively use the brush tool to just modify exposure where you want it, like under the helmet.

Other than the moderate exposure, it looks good. Sharpening looks good to me....what size does he want to print and how big is the office where he wants to display it?

If you're using Firefox you can install FxIF. That's what I use.

I'm not sure what size I'm going to print it or what his office looks like. I shot the games for free because my cousin was on the team in his senior year and my uncle was the webmaster of the school's football site (www.astronautfootball.​com (external link)). So as a favor to my family I shot the home games for fun. My dad also works for the school as a guidance councilor and his boss is the administrator. He's a really cool guy who was in charge of who gets access to the field and basically made life easy for me as a photographer. His request was, "Go get some good shots, I want a 'fathead' for my office"!

The cropped image is 3047x2013 pixels. How large should I go? I'll just give him the receipt from the print shop and call it a season. Oh and I don't have Lightroom, just good old DPP for RAW processing and for the TIFF's saved from it, Photoshop 7.0.

So you guys really think it looks good aside from dodging under the helmet? I expected a lot of red ink!

That's a very nice shot! 3047X2013 will print 8X12 inches at 250 pixels per inch, dropping to 200 PPI would give you about 10X15 inches.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

Don't limit yourself to this! with an image that size 20X30 is absolutely not out of the question. Larger is definitely a possibility. The image is NOT going to be viewed at arms length.

I tried to dodge the face but it just looked goofy every time. :/ Any pointers on how to do this the right way? (PS 7.0)

FxIf shows the Exif when you right-click on the image and select Properties, at least in Windows -- not sure how it works on a Mac.

Thoughts? Too warm? They still seemed a little blue in the 1st, maybe not I've been staring at it so long my mind might be playing tricks on me. I tried to bring out the shadow's shrouding the ball carrier's face as well.

Here's my quick edit. Nik tonal contrast + remove color cast (yes, it was a tad too warm), it adds a bit of pop.

I acquired an expensive camera so I can hang out in forums, annoy wedding photographers during formals and look down on P&S users... all the while telling people it's the photographer, not the camera.

You might also try a shadows/highlights adjustment in PS to open up the shadows some.

Maybe a bit too warm, but mainly *way* too dark in the darks (anything that's not a white shirt).
