Those are pretty good shots.

What camera/lens/settings did you use?

Thanks. I have a Rebel XT, sigma 70-200 f2.8. Shot at f2.8, aperature priority, 1/250 for the first and 1/200 for the second, ISO 1600, no exposure compensation, both around 130mm focal length.

These weren't RAW, although I'm trying to learn to shoot it. So far, when the games are in fairly well lit gyms, I've been shooting jpeg, as my time for post-processing is limited and I haven't learned many of the ins and outs of RAW conversion yet. A few games have been in somewhat darker facilities, so I've done a bit of RAW conversion. If I understand various posts on these forums, I can push exposure correction a bit further with it. I haven't shot RAW+JPEG to really compare what/how to process for myself.... soon.

klfatcj,

I shoot all my sports photos using RAW (I have the Canon 20D).

I would definitley recommend shooting in RAW, in fact I only shoot in RAW these days.

If you need help shooting with RAW, just private message me here.

Here is a few basics:

1) I use my EOS Viewer to retrieve the RAW images off my camera/card.

2) Download RAWSHOOTER (basic program is free) for manipulating RAW images.

RAWSHOOTER is pretty easy to use,and well organized.

Youcan crop, adjust, resize andconvert toJPEGS to various files sizes and quality with no loss in quality until the JPEG conversion.

The adjustments to contrast, sharpness, exposure, etc. are pretty extensive which makes RAW very worthwhile.

Another satisfied DrebXT owner.... Me too.

How much did the 70-200 set you back?

PS: I have the Sigma 70-300 APO Cheap but very good for the price range. But then again my daughter doesn't play volleyball anymore... Still a 2.8 would be real nice...
