Before & After

These before and after photos are from a recent high school basketball game. I had two strobes set up on the floor behind the basketball hoop to help with the lighting. When this play happened I snapped 3-4 consecutive photos and this was the best one. However, one of the strobes didn’t go off (the back one did, but the front one didn’t) because the batteries were too low and it couldn't recycle in time for a full discharge. Once I got back to the office I had little hope that this photo could be used because it was severely underexposed. After several minutes of playing with the curves and levels in Photoshop I was able to salvage what I could and get the photo into the Sundays paper.
