Commack High School Boys Varsity Basketball vs Ward Melville - Senior Night

Congratulations to the Commack boys basketball team on their senior night win over Ward Melville. Last home game of the regular season.

Photographing senior night is always fun. The one thing I have to remember is to change my exposure settings. Since the portraits with the families don’t require a high shutter speed I can afford to lower my ISO, but not too far since I need to stop down my aperture a bit to make sure I have adequate depth-of-field. I usually put on my 35mm f/2 prime lens, which is a 50mm full frame equivalent, and go from ISO 10,000 1/640 sec. @ f/2.8 to ISO 6400, 1/200 sec. @ f/4. That gives me enough D.O.F. in case the family members are not lined up on the same plane.

Got another senior night game tonight, this time the girls team.

Have fun.
