I'm sure you get lots of request for this info... what did you shoot this with. (Camera, Lens, Lighting) Just curious.

Wow! THat D1M2 is exceptionally clear at 5.6 & ISO 800.  Thanks for the info! I have read nearly every posting I can get to now &  I have looked over a lot of the site's from your students.  The information here is invaluable! I have noticed a major difference in my own work since being introduced to your site.  Every little bit helps.  Thanks!

The off-axis lighting creates great drama for a very action-packed shot.  I wonder if you pre-planted these lights in anticipation of shots at this hoop or if you used some other method.  Did you shoot such a high ISO to catch some of the shadow detail in the background folks?

Lights were placed pre game - to get shots at the hoop... problem is RECYCLE TIME is way to SLOW - I shot a few then turned them off and shot ambient light as usual. I could then shoot 4-5 shots per play by the hoop - rather than ONE - and have to wait 6+ seconds for strobes to recycle. High ISO is needed to get exposure. (strobes are far away from action).

Nice shot Ron, Are you using the ST-E2 transmitter? Using the TTL seems to make mine take a long time to recycle. I've just started using pocket wizards with 2 550's set on 1/2 power (For Rodeo and racing), I can get two reptitive shots instantly, then only about a second or 2 to recycle, it works great. I go sometimes to ISO 1600 on 1/4 power, they recycle almost instantly over and over, the IDM2 is still very clean at 1600.

I do so little of this sort of thing. I shoot 1 bball game a year, and one Hocky event, a couple football games and ski racing.  I used pocket wizards. I didn't use the ST-E2 (anyone wanna buy one) I don't use mine) bought it for low light focusing of the D30 and D60 and lesser models and no longer need it with the 1D and 1Ds M2's.
