Girl's Basketball...comments/critiques please!
Jan 24, 2013

Here are a couple recent shots.  Color has improved now that I've figured out how to set the white balance.  Shooting in manual, 640 shutter speed, 2.2-2.5 aperture and ISO between 3400-6800.  Some processing and noise reductions in iPhoto.  Shot w Sony A57, 50mm 1.7 Minolta lens.  I'm battling the cycling lights that I've read here about..one shot light, next shot dark, etc.

Questions: Do these appear to be properly exposed?  Any advice on improving these shots?  Also, wondering if the Sony 85mm 2.8 lens would be good enough for sports shots such as these?  Price is reasonable....I'm missing a lot of shots due to slow focus.  Or maybe a 24-70mm 2.8 lens?  Appreciate any comments or help.  Thanks!
