LSU Gymnastics Pics

These are not the greatest, as I was doing a bit of experimenting with settings. They are not as good as my football pics. Low light and poor autofocus was my enemy.

Why exactly do you feel the need to take pics at a womans gymnastic meet. Looks like you have a fetish for the open leg shots.

FIFY

And to answer your question, I'm africking amateur photographer looking to better my skills in all areas. An indoor gymnastics meet is VERY challenging.

ASS.

The purpose of shooting sports is to catch the action. Gymnasts must show flexibility. This often entails "open legs." Why shoot photos of a gymnast just standing around?

Besides, I like to throw a little red meat to the Rantards...

GOT to be a woman! I guess you've never paid attention to advertising or pics in the paper or magazines. That's generally all they ever show.

That's what I'm thinking, but I'll give the benefit of the doubt.

Good for you. It takes lots of practice and is a very expensive hobby but if you are good, it's a very profitable career choice as well.
I assume you've taken some classes. Do you get critiques from a professional photographer? I hope you'll continue with this!

Football pics are one thing, crotch shots of females are another. Of course you don't understand that and will do whatever it takes to justify your pervyness in your mind.

Yeah, I get critiques from some pros on a photography forum. I'm still a year or two away from being able to charge money. I doubt it will be a "career"--if you remember, you and I were in Tiger Band at the same time, so it may be a little late in the game for me to switch jobs... ...but a little side work to pay for new equipment wouldn't be bad!

I am self taught. I read a lot of books and scour others' work.

Thanks!

You never know. Do take a class because you have potential and you'll learn quite a bit. Plus, you'll have a lot of fun if you have a good teacher.
I admire that you tried a gymnastics event because that type of action is very difficult. Most people have very little idea how difficult that is to capture "perfect" shots.

If Freshly71 is indeed a man, I bet if we looked in his closet and under his mattress we'd find a bunch of cum-stained magazines filled with child porno pics. He who complains/criticizes the loudest is usually the one with that skeleton in their closet.

Let me be clear about this.....I LOVE your work and props to you

but

unless you were born with a Vagina, your quote above has to have at least 25% bull shite in it. We're all human.

I'll accept 10%.

While I love looking at a beautiful athletic female as much as the next guy, I'm old enough to be these girls' father...it even creeps me out a bit to think about it...

re: LSU Gymnastics Pics
I'm intervening here.

I've been a sports photographer and videographer for 22 years.

The photographer who posted these photos is only showing photos of what happened.

If what happened was college coeds going spread eagle in an athletic competition, then that's what happened. He's not inventing reality here. He's reflecting it.

If you have a problem with it, contact the NCAA and outlaw the manuevers, or get them to cover up.

The photos may be prurient, but they're not obscene. So back off.

Photographs don't lie. They only show what happened, definitively. So don't blame the mirror if you don't like the picture. Blame the source.

If I found photos of puppies offensive, I wouldn't be looking to ban photos of puppies. I just wouldn't look at or take photos of puppies.

To the OP, low light is always going to be difficult when shooting sports, because the action is fast, and the only way to let more light in without a flash is to slow the shutter speed.

Slow shutter speed = blur.
Fast shutter speed = dark and noisy.

You're screwed either way. That's why LSU is probably the hardest place to shoot sports, with all the night events.

So you have to play with it a bit. Here are my tips for you:

1. Shoot RAW format if possible. It will be friendlier to fixing later with software on your computer.

2. Take noise and low-light over blur any day. Blur ruins a photo. Low light can be boosted with an ISO adjustment. Noise can be filtered somewhat with software.

3. Sometimes you need a faster lens. Look for a 1.8 f stop or lower to deliver more light in tough spots.

4. The darker it is, the harder it will be for you to shoot hand-held. Look into a monopod to help combat blur.

5. Practice with manual focus. When it's dark, autofocus has trouble locating the focal points of a photograph. Your brain works better in low light.

Hope that helps.
