I thought I would just quickly share another side of the Indoor Cricket we are busy photographing for PhatPhotos.

Behind the scenes, you can just see how much some of the coaches care for their teams and these two shots pretty much sum it up quite well.

PS - I don't think I have worked so hard, ever. But it is totally worth it!!

I have to second the effort was huge, and the last day was a nightmare... After a long week.
Mia and I worked between the courts alone, and the lighting form the different courts changed so you had to watch setting between shots. You do not get a second chance when shooting JPEG, and I was grateful when I did the final group shots in RAW ... And gave the 125 Meg's an image for Danie to download.

We had a great team of photographers and I cannot wait for the next challenge.
We learnt a huge amount and the main thing is knowing the sport, and what is considered a good image by the client "the sportsman".
Then we had to shoot images that the spectators could not shoot in order to be exclusive so that we have a marketable image...

Do not get in the way of the coaches... It's like USA baseball coaches... Wow they run and shout and never stop...

I don't think so. The above shots have only had minor black and white point tweaks. I think we were fortunate with quite white light. Danie has been editing the 1000s of shots though from different cameras and he has a keen eye, so his take on it would be ideal.

I am so glad somebody else had the same problems than what I had in those playing areas. Did you also find the light to be very yellow?

Hi. The settings for most of the shots were iso 8000, f/4 to 4.5 and from 1/500 to 1/320 as the light changed. We had to push the iso to keep the shutter speed fast enough to capture the action. The light was tricky.

Great behind the scenes action

Kevin, Can you please give us some indication of the kind of settings that you were using during the tournament. I have done 2 action cricket games in the last year and had to use very high ISO's to get any kind of speed. ISO over 12000.
