Evening sports lighting

Recommended Posts

With all the great shots posted lately with some beautiful and dramatic lighting I thought I would share a few from some recent sports work.

One of my favorite things to shoot is baseball or softball on a summer evening. The warm lighting and backlight situations created by backgrounds and dust can make for some nice shots.

These are by no means great sports shots showing peak action but illustrate some lighting possibilities to think about for the next time you are capturing your kids, grand kids, friends kids, etc. in their sporting events. Try thinking outside the box a bit and look for something different than a stock action shot, it can be real fun with unexpected results.

1. ISO 800, f2.8, 1/1250s with +2/3 EC

#2 ISO 800, f2.8, 1/1250s with +2/3 EC

#3 ISO 500, f2.8, 1/6400s with +1/3 EC

#4 The background is what makes this photo work for me sunlight on the background trees. A sportrait type of shot.

ISO 640, f2.8, 1/1250s

Care to guess on this one? That game the sun seemed to have an effect on more than a couple of plays.

LOL @ Dan!!! Thanks!!! I love the look on the second dudes face.. Like ""WHAT are you doing?"

the second shot he has a pretty good lean going. My guess is he may have made the catch but fell over backwards shortly after. Either that or he got a really bad heal hop out of the glove!

I think I ended up with about 8 or 9 shots of this sequence, the face I think says it all. smile

All great shots, as usual Dan. Lighting does so much to add to a photo - not only for exposure's sake, but to set a tempo and emotion for it. The backlighting in the first two would normally be a couple that would go into the trash bin, but it does add an element of, for lack of a better word, ethereal-ness to the photo.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
