Lighting Bball (JRN521)

So I had to light basketball this weekend. I had never lit a court before. I got some interesting results. I wasn't sure where to put the lights. Some of the photos came out too dark, some were really direct-lit and looked bad, and some looked like they were shot in the studio, sans the audience in the background.

this one is my favorite from the night. It would have been better if I got more of the guy on the far right, but I still like it anyway. I used a slow shutter speed with the lights to get this motion effect.

The next one is my second favorite, but I am not sure about the crop.

The Morning Sun ran this one:

I think this is okay too, but I wish I was more straight-on to see his face.
