The non-gymnastics people (myself included) might be interested to know the flash setup(s) that you can get away with in gymnastics, especially on beams etc. I'd be afraid I'd end up with the person being shop landing awkwardly in those events. I flash football most of the time but can't imagine doing it during gymnastics.

Unfortunately, no flash for gymnastics so you have to depend on high ISOs and fast glass. I've even seen people asked to stop photographing because they were using focus assist beams.

That's what I thought.. but he's obviously using flash in the photos above.. that's why I asked

During practice sessions and photo shoots at your own gym its possible. The key is to have a good relationship with the gym owner and coaches. And permission of course.

My gym is thrilled to have a gym parent do their photo shoot or shoot special events.

Thanks for starting a new thread Brice. I hope to have some to share soon.

Hello everyone! I learned a lot from the old thread and wanted to get this one back to life. This was my first time shooting with a fast enough lens to stop the action. All were taken with a 450D 50mm f/1.8 set at 1/320 - 1/500 f/1.8 iso 800 - 1600. Any C&C is welcome and appreciated.

Where O where did all the gymnastics shooters go? Just finished editing these. All were taken with a 450D 50mm f/1.8 set at 1/320 - 1/640 f/1.8 iso 1600 (I got noise ninja :D ). Any C&C is welcome and appreciated.

At f/1.8 and 1/340-600 you still need 1600 ISO? Must be pretty bad lighting in there!

LOL! That's a good day in gymnastics photography! Often, it's even worse!

Really? Wow. I recently shot an indoor volleyball game and was able to stick mostly to ISO 800 with my 50 f/1.8 getting 1/500 shots and I thought that lighting was bad. Guess I need more exposure to worse situations :)

It can get worse than that. I recently shot a gymnastics meet where I used 1/500 at f1.8 at ISO 6400. Some of these gyms are real caves. Just did a meet at the Baltimore Convention Center ( where they seemed to have turned the lights down to conserve electricity) and shot at 1/400 at f1.8 at ISO 3200. That is the norm, and usually you have issues with cyclic lighting as well.

Well, I have the same 450D and I'm needing to make that move to the 7D for better ISO performance and fps. I'm sure you've considered this as well.

I started with a 40D, and I still use that as well as a 7D. The 7D has advantages both in Hi ISO performance over the 40D and the 80 per cent more pixels gives more cropping options. The 8fps vs 6fps isn't a huge advantage, but the AF options are. I use both cameras together with some combination of 85 f/1.8, 100 f/2, 135 f/2, and, if there is enough light, a Sigma 50-150 f/2.8 with the 7D on the FX event ( and sometimes the BB). UB and VT I use one of the primes.

I have only once been in a gym where I could use less than ISO 3200 and that place was a converted Wal-Mart re-engineered as an indoor sports complex.
