Ok, I know I said I’d try to take more pics of things OTHER THAN my kids, but… I said I’d TRY, not that I WOULD. And, I’m still in the midst of volleyball season, which means that my indoor-poor-lighting-fast-movement challenge is still on.
A few weeks ago I tried some film, but forgot my flash.
This is the result:
And that was the best of the bunch.
So, this past weekend I brought the flash. Fortunately she told me afterwards that it didn’t bother her – even as it was going off in her face as she made some heroic shot or other!
Still quite a bit darker than I’d like, but finally I’ve stopped motion! I can’t seem to get this shot with the digital, even on manual settings. Even the ball itself is clear!
I’d like to crop in closer to “my subject”. And try some contrast adjustments. These are right outta the can because I don’t yet own or know how to use Photoshop.
Can you hardly tell she’s done years of ballet??
This one wasn’t as clear, but it’s my “money shot”! I can’t remember if she saved this ball or not, but she sure looks good trying!
I have one more try for “THE” indoor volleyball shot – next tournaments in better stadiums.
In the meantime, I took a roll or two in my backyard yesterday – it was SUNNY! AND WARM!!
I’ll post those sometime soon, assuming any turned out.
