Another great MLK weekend basketball tournament. Moline really pulled off the last game with a come from behind win. Way to go Maroons. Check out some photos from today.
A slightly abstract photo of the Moline High School Girls Basketball team charging down the court on a fast break. They played a hard game and came back from behind to almost pull it out in the end. Good game girls!!
I used the game to try out some new lighting and a remote camera. I now have four Strobelights (Canon 580EX), one at each corner of the field house, with extra battery packs, and triggered with Radiopopper PX’s. My main camera is a Canon 1DmkIV and I’m using a 50mm f1.4 lens for most shots. I’m typically shooting at 1/500th of a second shutter speed, f/2.8 aperture, ISO 1600 and using ETTL for the fill in flash. This game I also used Radiopopper JrX’s to remote fire a camera on the baseline. That is my new “travel camera”, a Canon SL1 that I set up with a 16mm lens on the floor under the basket. It uses the same 4 flashes as well and I was shooting at f/4 for a little more depth of field. There are a few good photos from here, but the flashes didn’t fire all the time ... still a few kinks to work out.
Take a look.

I hope you like them.
Moline had their Homecoming Parade this afternoon and the whole town came out. Here are a few photos.
Moline High School Football! This is one of the few moments of celebration from Friday's game as the Maroon's just recovered a fumble. I uploaded a ton of photos. Enjoy!
