Default Blue ... and Gold

My first and only time trying my hand at shooting indoor sports. It wasn't a game, just a practice last week during a sneak-peak of the newly renovated Pauley Pavilion. Not exactly a middle school gym, and my 200mm lens was really too short for the middle of the lower section of seats. But I had a good time looking around and seeing first hand what some of the challenges could be.

Like the determination on the guy's face in pic number 2.

Must have been shooting pretty wide open and high ISO but I see no noise.

The second one is really the only half-way decent shot I got. While I was shooting at close to wide open at f3.5, the lens I was using is quite good. The ISO was relatively low at 640, so not a lot of noise to take out. Just wish the focus hadn't been slightly off - the camera focused slightly in front of the player. I did run it through a bit of DeNoise after sharpening, it had introduced a bit more noise than I wanted.

I was lucky that pretty much all of the lights were on, a high school gym would not have allowed me to use as low ISO. The renovated building is very nice, and they've now put up a bronze statue of John Wooden (for those old enough to remember him) in front of the building. All wonderful.

Very nice action shots! I saw the unveiling of John Wooden's statue on the news. A great man.

Not bad for indoor lighting - the equipment and photographer work well together!
