After much frustration in this gym, I asked for some help with getting better shots without using direct flash as I do not like the results and I am not fond of blinding the players. I have shot in this gym without flash at ISOs ranging from 2000 to 3200, and the pics are okay, but not great. There is a gentleman on this forum that has been a great help with my problem. He has helped me understand the relationship of ambient to flash light, how to meter, the importance of white balance, and how to set things up. He is telling me I need to get the flash off the camera and how to do it. Although I haven't got all the pieces assembled quite yet, I am on my way. Last night I went to the gym armed with everything he had told me, a few things from a poster at FM, and a prayer or two.

The following shots were all with the SB800 on the camera, in portrait mode, with the flash pointed at the ceiling. All were shot with the flash set to manual at 1/4 power, ISO 1000, 50mm f1.8 at f3.2, 1/200 SS which is the max synch speed on the D90. I would also like to thank the poster that gave me some tips on my sharpening techniques. I am hoping to be able to do some off camera flash shots in the weeks to come. Thanks guys for all the help. You know who you are. Comments, both good and bad, are always welcome.
