Up Top, Part I

Pearl puts up a shot.

Usually, the best part about shooting high school sports at our district’s closest fieldhouse is the walkway above the court. It’s easiest for my Nikon D700 and Nikon 85mm lens to isolate the plays from up top, above the action.

Intensity adds to the layup’s momentum.

But a few weeks ago when I was snapping shots of our high school’s girls’ basketball team, I noticed something equally important: New lighting!

Alexis shoots.

Those brighter bulbs over the court meant that my ISO was at a rather sedate 800 instead of its usual 1600-plus in this venue. Made it so much easier to process my photos.

Nicole drives in for two points.

And what about the athletes’ play on the court?

Natalie hones in on the basket.

Equally brilliant!
