Today I did a photo shoot for Mount Royal University Recreation. This was a photo shoot to be used on the cover of the next Rec Guide. You can take a look at some photos from my last photo shoot that I did for them, also for the Rec Guide, but that time it was at a swimming pool. It was hard to come up with something creative so I did my best. I saw some great looking light coming from the colourful windows so I used them to try to make a simple running shot more exciting and colourful :)

2010-02-22 13:33 Tracy B!: Is it a bad sign if I don't even remember all of these pics? Just as many great faces in these, but with a little less air ;)

I just finished updating my sports gallery with new and larger photographs and I though I would put some of my favourite photographs on the blog and see what you think. I would love to see your comments saying what image is your favourite :)

2010-03-04 15:59 Sergei Belski: Thank you Violetta, I took the photo. I attached my camera to the back sit and used a remote trigger :)
2010-03-02 19:28 Violetta: I love the pic where you are driving your mini!!!! Who took it? How was it done? It looks very relaxed, chill, and fast at the same time. I love it!
2010-02-24 15:52 Sergei Belski: Trevor, I wonder why you picked a MINI photo :) Thank you!
2010-02-24 10:10 Trevor Z: Definitely the MINI picture :D. They are all fantastic though!
2010-02-22 11:58 Sergei Belski: Thank you very much for all your comments! Its not really sports photo, but I think my favourite is me driving a MINI, I had fun photographing it :)
2010-02-22 07:41 Shawna Benson: I think you ROCK sports photography! They are all wonderful!!
2010-02-21 23:26 Maple: I like the one with you driving.
2010-02-18 22:24 Viktor: Great pictures, the "horse legs" is my favourite one. It's the highest level!
2010-02-18 17:59 Paul Rice: Nice work Sergei - as usual. 900 lbs on the back HAS to hurt. Keep up the good work.
2010-02-18 13:53 Greg P: I still gotta go with the horse legs pic. It's a classic and I was with you when you took it. I will go with the motion capture mini shot second best. The horse on top of the cowboy is interesting, but oh so wrong.
2010-02-18 13:40 Tracy B!: Great pics--I remember them all ;) I think I like you in your Mini the best...though not sure it really should be considered a sport?

Here are some photographs that I took on Friday night for Mount Royal University Cougars, who played against Lethbridge Kodiaks. So far this is turning out to be a basketball month on my blog and I have another basketball tournament next weekend.

On Friday and Saturday I photographed Bowness Trojans Classic Basketball Tournament at Bowness High School in Calgary. This was my 4th year photographing it and it was great as always. Thank you Tracy for helping me out, without you it wouldn't be possible!! You can also see some photographs from the last year's tournament in my blog archives

2010-02-21 23:20 Sergei Belski: I'm very bad at photoshop. I try to do everything I can in camera, and try to stay away from photoshop as much as I can so I'm really not the right person to give advice on how to do anything in photoshop :) I was asked about my logo before and I wrote my process (again, probably not the best way) on a Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=14387663313&topic=4360 Hope it will help :)
2010-02-21 13:39 Dan Smith: Sergei, thanks for the information. I shoot a lot of sports and really like shooting 'through' the action. I get the peak as I start and follow up expression and sometimes an even better shot than the one I was working for. One problem I am having in trying to put my logo on the images. I use Printroom.com and they take Jpegs for the galleries and prints. I can't get a jpeg to have a transparent background and stay that way when I save the image. Photoshop saves it as a PSD. I am using jpegs, not Gif or PSD. Any way you know of to make the Logo stay as a layer so I only have to upload the full image for delivery after stripping the logo layer off it?
2010-02-18 09:40 Sergei Belski: Forgot to mention that yes they all connected to the power outlets. Battery will not do it. Shooting with strobes you have to time your shots. Recycle time is like 2 seconds so you need to time your shots at the pick action. Knowing sports helps. I really don't find it limiting and when I shoot without strobes I also time my shots.
2010-02-18 09:33 Dan Smith: Thanks for the information. The images do look good. I am looking toward next year with volleyball, basketball and wrestling. I love the full intense color. I use strobes seldom, relying on fast lenses and shooting in gyms I know are lit well enough to use them. Does having to wait for recycling of the flash put a crimp in your shooting? I tend to 'shoot through' peak action. Pick the peak and trigger a 3-5 shot burst, like shooting an M16. This has given me a lot of follow up facial expressions that are worth it. I got to your site from SportsShooter.com... so someone reads what you posted. Thanks for the information.
2010-02-17 23:13 Sergei Belski: Thank you very much Dan! Its hard to have a diagram, I use different setup every time I photograph. Its all depends on the venue and what sport. I use Alien Bee strobes, anywhere from 2 to 6 of them. I always point them up towards the ceiling and bounce them. This way I get the softest light and I don't bother the athletes. Plus I really don't like the look of the direct strobes, I'm trying to have the look so you can't really tell if I used strobes or not. For this tournament I had 2 x 1600 strobes, set on one side of the court. One attached to the shot clock and one on the light stand. Advice.. make sure you have permission to use strobes, when I use them, I'm always hired and officials and everyone involved knows that I will be using them. Other than that, just play around and find what works for you :) About my logo, I use photoshop, copy/past. When I sell or deliver photos I don't have any watermarks, its just for Internet.
2010-02-17 21:29 Dan Smith: Forgot this on the first comment. How are you putting your logo on each photo? A simple photoshop action? When you sell prints do you have the logo on the delivered work or just on the internet images? Looks good, clean and professional.
2010-02-17 21:27 Dan Smith: Nice work. Can you put up a diagram of how you set up the alien bee strobes? Are you doing a ceiling bounce or direct onto the court? All battery powered or wired for power from wall plugs? A blog entry covering this would be much appreciated. Any particular problems you have run into using your setup? Advice for those of us wanting to try it?? thanks, Dan
2010-02-09 21:05 Viktor: Excellent pictures, the quality is perfect! And the shots persuasively demonstrate how seriously these young guys were struggling in this tournament.
2010-02-09 09:43 Tracy B@: Great Pics! Love the collection you put together, I think you picked almost all my favorite ones--except your missing a stellar team huddle picture--those were super popular!
2010-02-08 22:21 Sergei Belski: Thank you Vanessa!
2010-02-08 20:10 Vanessa Day: Pretty wicked shots here Sergei!

2010-01-31 18:43 Sergei Belski: Thank you Katya! Its hard to tell about camera, for games like this I use strobes so the quality is great with all my cameras. I do love it, the high ISO is great! I would be able to tell more when I will shoot some other events where I can actually push it :)
2010-01-31 18:25 Ekaterina: Excellent! How do you like the new 1D4?

Here are some photographs from two volleyball games that I photographed on Friday night for Mount Royal University Cougars, who played against Red Deer College.

2010-01-23 10:22 Sergei Belski: Thank you very much Shawna! If you come to one of the games I photograph I would be happy to show you the way I do things! Thank you very much!
2010-01-21 08:38 Shawna Benson: I have been admiring your sports photography for a while! It is so AWESOME! Althoug sports is a side passion of mine (I mostly do weddings!!) Your set ups intrigue me ... ONe day I'd love to come and watch you do a game ... Basketball and Football are my faves ... Excellent work!
2010-01-18 14:48 Sergei Belski: Thank you very much! Yes the second game MRC lost at the buzzer!
2010-01-18 00:34 Ingrid: Great images Sergei! Looks like the second game was even more intense than the first. Thanks for showing me the ropes.

Yesterday evening I photographed a hockey game of Airdrie Xtreme for the City of Airdrie. I usually use strobes to photograph hockey but this time I was stuck doing it without them. I still ended up with some nice shots but as you can see I had to use pretty high ISO settings.
