Indoor Field Hockey

Discussion in 'Photojournalism, Candids and Street Photography' started by mike mac, Mar 12, 2005.

  1. Shot an indoor field hockey game today let me tell you this place was dark as a dungeon.
    Shot ISO 1600 @ 2.8 with the 70-200VR om a monopod the fastest shutter speed I could muster was 1/180s.
    I ran these through Neat Image plug in as part of PP work flow.
    I was approached by several parents wanting to know if I sell the prints, I told them I would let them know after checking my results. Here are a few of todays shots.
    Can you say ouch!

    Mike ,

    Good shots.

    If you PSCS you can run them through shadow/highlights and bring them right up.

    Excellent action shots. I just can't believe that they aren't wearing face masks. Look like a good way to loose teeth.... :?


  8. Gale thanks will give that a whilr this place is so dark cant get high enough shutter to stop the action

    the rules keep the ball on the ground they where these over sized mouthgaurds, it was so hard to get a decent shot it was so dark in there and at ISO1600 I got 180's so the shots are dark but any +Ev would make the shutter speed even lower

    Nice shots Mike, although I agree they could use a bit of PS work to brighten 'em up a bit. I played field hockey as a kid. It was fun and as you say the rules pretty much leave faces undamaged - which was a good thing as I was ugly enough to start with.

  11. Good action shots Mike. Low light situations certainly do make things difficult don't they. I think the parents would be happy to buy these and I see you have used one of my favorite lenses the 70-200mm VR.
