Commack High School Boys JV Basketball vs. Longwood / Commack JV Kickline
Congratulations to the Commack boys JV basketball team on their win over Longwood. Nice job! Also a great performance by the JV kickline! Just a quick tip on white balance in mixed lighting. I thought I had the white balance for the south gym down cold until I photographed this JV game. JV basketball starts at 4:00pm and there was still plenty of daylight coming through the large windows in the gym, something that doesn't happen in the varsity games that start later. So much for my memorized white balance. For mixed lighting such as this where we have the overhead fluorescents mixing with daylight from the windows there's not much you can do except set your white balance to "Auto" and deal with the variations in post. It's not like you have an even mix across the whole gym floor; you have cool spots under the windows and warmer spots between them and in the backcourts, so there's no way you're going to get a good average. Just set white balance to "Auto" and move on.
