One of the sports I love playing is called fives and it is something that is almost never shot as we don't have any courts with glass walls and there are no courts with good enough lighting even for an f1.8 lens to get a shot fast enough. I decided to do some experiments at the start of the evening while a couple of the young players were warming up. I used Canon 5D with 24-104mm f4 and Canon 580EX as well as a 430EX on a tripod to get a different feel to just direct flash (was an excuse for me to play to see what the results would be like).

Im wondering if that is what we call handball here in the states. Only we play on wood floors, not concrete! Is there a way to experiment with different lighting positions? That would be a pretty cool experiment.

Thanks guys, I did try a couple of lighting options and would like to get some softboxes in there (if I was being fussy).

It is a great game especially as we usually play doubles so gets really fast.
