Q: How many photographers does it take to light a gym?
A: Just 1.
Not going to lie, I haven’t shot basketball since march so I’m a bit rusty. However, during the off season I studied up on Strobist.com. One of David Hobby’s entries is about how to light for the cavernous pits known as high school gymnasiums.
Using items that can be purchased from your local Home Depot for less than $5, I was able to make a clamp stand for my strobe. I clipped it on to the railing above the court near the baseline and hooked up a Pocket Wizard. Below are the results.
