As indoor collegiate sports are winding down, it is time to move to a local minor league basketball team. These were shot with a Z9 fit with a 24-70 f2.8 S lens. SS 1/1000th, f2.8, ISO 6400. Some of the worst lighting I shoot in. I am directly under the basket so I leave the 70-200 home. Definitely gives my post processing skills a workout!

Here are a few for your amusement. You may see the rest on my website: Last night was the first Raleigh Firebirds game. First observation (non game) is leave the hearing aids home!!! Here are a few of my favorite shots from the game for your enjoyment.

You may see all of them on my website: https://rickcornell.zenfolio.com/p361884924

Great job in reducing (almost eliminating) the noise you’d expect to see @ 1S0 6400. Lightroom?

I chose to go with AI Sharpen, so noise kind of hangs around a bit. Problem is lighting is so bad, everything comes out underexposed. As you know, trying to get the image out of underexposed images introduces more noise. It is a balancing act!
