Varsity Field Hockey, Very Cloudy

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by Aqualung, Sep 29, 2008.

  1. Today it actually rained about 30 mins before game time...and remained fairly dark storm cloud light, w/ some sporadic sunshine or brighter light...Field was surrounded by buildings, playground and houses, backgrounds were not good.

    Although the histogram seemed OK, many of the pics seemed dark, so I tried to brighten them up a little in post, not sure if it was an improvement or not...fire away! :smile:

    3. All tangled up...the girl in red/white came down hard but was OK. No ball and not the sharpest but thought it was cool.

    Chris,

    Had those same clouds here today during my daughters FH game. I think yours came out better than mine. I could only get SS of 800 and ISO's of 1600+. I wasn't a happy camper when I saw them on the monitor.
     
  5. Thanks Mark!

    Thanks Darren, appreciate that...

    Thanks Vince, I saw your note in Brooks' soccer pics too. Boy, you were real dark then, I had ISO 500 and 1/1250, which I thought was dark.
