    I am the photography editor for my highschool yearbook, and we are having some significant trouble getting decent pictures of volleyball games. They are played under poor artificial light (flashes are not allowed) :cry: , and shooting with fuji 1600 just isnt getting us the clean action shots we need. I am shooting with a Nikon N75 with a nikon f2.8 80-200 lens. Any suggestions or ideas would be helpful.

    What's the best shutter you can get? It must be night in there.

    Hello cousin Wedge. I used to shoot University volleyball in a facility little brighter than a cave. I was using T-Max 3200 pushed to 6400 and shooting wide open at f/2.8 and 1/250. It took great care to get the processing right, but the film came out with great images. Perhaps you could try some of that.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    So you're getting a 1/800th of a second shutter speed?
    What focal lengths are you normally shooting at? Are you using a tripod. How are you focusing?
