Re: Hindrance's pics and reports at AO2013
I'll chime in too!
I agree with everything that Jimmie48 wrote above.
Thanks to urklerlay and Jimmie48.
You are right about the darkened areas when shooting in midday when sun is overhead. The pro photographers at courtside also have the same problem and some of them try to photoshop the faces to make them brighter, but it ends up making the players faces look scary. I was using ISO 100 and underexposing slightly so that I dont get too much brightness, which will usually happen if I dont adjust it or if I use autoISO. Im quite happy with how the photos looked generally, but what you say about the visors and overexposure is worth experimenting with. Photo 0840 I thought its a kind of interesting shadow, almost like a silhouette, I only had a few minutes to get some photos because there were a lot of matches on. I agree with your comments about the lighting, its something to work on. I only just got the lens so at the moment Im first trying to improve focus and framing the shots. Yes I like the Allez shot of Bartoli as well, I went there just to get some photos of what she was doing between points. I wish I was closer and got a better shot, I was sitting in the very last row because it was totally full.
