Congratulations to the Commack Girls Tennis T,eam on their win over Smithtown East. In case you’re wondering, these photos are in random order so if you’re looking for your photos they could be anywhere.
Sometimes the photo gods shine on you with really good light. Most times, not. This match was played under really good light. Not perfect, mind you; could have been a bit brighter. I was up at ISO 6400 for the last few shots when it started raining, but it definitely beats harsh sunlight, especially on our tennis courts most of which have dark backgrounds.
I did very little to these photos in post processing. Some were a little hot due to the black handball courts in the background so those had their exposure reduced, but for the most part I just tweaked the contrast and added some noise reduction on the higher ISO shots. The only other adjustment was to the football players orange helmet covers, who were practicing in the background. I de-saturated those (that’ll teach them).
The weather looks good for cross country tomorrow. This was postponed from yet another rain-out so it will be good to get this in.
