Covering Prep Football
By Robert Hanashiro

Most photographers don't have the luxury of shooting football in daylight or in nicely lit stadiums. In the old days, we all cooked up our own secret formula to push Tri-X beyond a reasonable index (this is pre-"magic film days and I'm showing my age), but the desire of newspapers to have color and also the introduction of digital cameras has been a good news/bad news proposition. While digital affords a speedy turnaround to production, those little pixels don't look good at ASA6400. Recently two photographers posted on NPPA-L their "formula" for available-darkness football. T.C. Baker and Rob Miracle have given me permission to republish their writings on their techniques.
