Great job in stopping the action and great facial expressions as well. Do you remember what lens you used.

Great job

Great set. I really love the change in perspective with the wider angle and landscape orientation on 1, 4, and 5 - they really show the action of the game.

Really like #1 the best.

I must try some at this angle - Very Cool!

Great Job.
Pics are outstanding.

Now a question for you. I noticed those are taken with a D90.
Would you mind sharing your camera setup for those pics.
Metering, AF settings, picture control(Sharpness, Contrast,Brightness,Saturation), etc.
Thanks

First off, thanks for all the kind words everyone!



I have all the exif on the shots if you want to see the details.

I shot aperture priority

I either used f/1.4 or f/2.8 depending on the lens.
I adjusted the iso for the venue, in this case it was 1250.
I made sure my shutter was getting over 1/500th and exposing correctly.
Before the game I took my cards (black, white and 16%gray) and picked a custom white balance.
Af was set on af-c the entire game.
And my metering was set to center weighted I believe. All of my in camera do dads were set to normal or 0.

All I did pp was crop and some minor touch ups (noise reduction, levels, and contrast)

Thanks.
I have a D90 also.
But due to the poorly lit gyms I shoot.
I can't get the same quality photos you shot.
