Commack High School Girls Varsity Basketball vs. Sachem East - Senior Night

Commack High School Girls Varsity Basketball vs. Sachem East - Senior Night

Last regular game of the season and on to the playoffs for the Commack girls team. This was senior night, which is always fun. Got some shots of the seniors with their parents and the coaches.

One quick tip today - if you're photographing a ceremony like senior night don't forget to change the exposure settings on your camera. You can afford to lower your shutter speed and ISO since you'll be doing portraits before the game starts. There's no need for a high shutter speed; your subjects will be standing still. That also means you can reduce your ISO a bit to increase the quality of the shots. One caveat - if you normally shoot the game with a wide aperture (f/2.8 or wider) you'll want to stop down a bit for the portraits to make sure everyone is in focus.

Photographing the boys basketball senior night tonight and that's it for the regular season. Have fun.
