Retro Night Basketball

Gear Used:

Some friends dressed up retro and had a game of basketball one night. The game was outside and only had one net up against the brick wall of a school. I hadn’t planned on shooting basketball, so the only lens I had with me was 50mm. It was two dark to focus so I just flipped it to manual and pre-focused to about 4 feet. To give me enough depth of field that anything with in range would be in focus, I set a smallish aperature of f7.1. I then pointed my external flash so that it was bouncing off the same wall the net was on and stood near the side of the net. The darkness created great separation of the players against the background.
