Women's Basketball

And now for something completely different. I enjoy shooting sports, but I don't get as many opportunities as I once did. These photographs are from last weekend's Women's ACC tournament in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Dan, what lens do you use when you shoot indoor sports?

Sort of depends upon where you are. From the outside corner of the baseline I use an 80-200 on a full frame sensor. To cover the other end of the court, I use a 300 2.8. If I'm under the basket close, I will go with a 28-70. I try to use the fastest lens I can, but with the high ISO capabilities of the newer cameras, (I use a D700), you can jack the speed up pretty high. I think my exposure at the coliseum was about 1/500 at F4 at ISO 1600.
