Day 26


We went up to the middle school tonight to watch our 6th grade neighbor’s volleyball game.  Happily, her team won the game. 

I wasn’t sure how well my photos would come out since it was in a gym and the girls were moving.  My nifty fifty lens did really well and I didn’t have to use my pesky flash (not that it would have helped in such a large room). 

Editing: slight exposure increase in ACR

  • f/1.8
  • 1/160
  • 400 ISO
  • 50mm


I did remember to get a photo of GothGirl as she was eating popcorn from the concession stand.  Though it is winter and it seems like it’s been many months since we’ve seen the sun, she is not really quite this pale….the lighting where she was sitting was pretty terrible and this was the best I could do in Photoshop to get all of the colors somewhat true to life.  The result is that her face is extra pale.  This photo was also taken early in the night when I was still shooting at 800 ISO, before realizing that it was light enough for 400 ISO.  Thus, the grain.

  1. As someone who has spent many hours spectating sports in a high school gym, I think these are fabulous! I mean could there be any place with brighter lights and a glaring, reflective floor?

    Goth Girl can be pale. It is okay. Pale girls are cool - not that I'm partial or anything! ;) Let's just say that sometimes I totally have to Picassa the heck out of photos so that I don't look like the walking dead!
