Recently I returned to the studio to work on improving the lighting technique I used previously on basketball players. I also attempted to use a moderate amount of a high-pass filter to add extra sharpness and a more dramatic flavour to these images.

And here’s a couple with Pawel’s actual favourite team. I’m sure the blue and white felt uncomfortable:

Basketball Portraits – With Actual Basketball Players This Time!

Today I finally got some time before their practice to do some portraits with Fanshawe basketball players. Here are some of the results:

The funny thing is – out of the 4 images I posted above, only 1 uses the floor of the gym as I intended. I didn’t have a whole lot of time with the players so I still have a few more poses and angles I’d like to try, but overall I’m happy with how these turned out. Next time I’d like to make better use of the floor to create a more interesting background.

Huge thanks to Pawel Wnek who held the front light up on a boom arm. That thing is heavy – luckily I was shooting so I didn’t have to lift it!
