nikon nikkor 85mm f/1.4 D lens indoor basketball gym photography

Josi McDermott

I tried out a new lens this past Tuesday at the Southern Oregon University women’s basketball game. The Nikon 85mm f/1.4 D produced the above result at an aperture of 1.4 and a shutter speed of just 1/1250 of a second (an exposure time I’m not used to indoors with gym lighting). I didn’t even need to bump the ISO up very high to get that kind of shutter speed. This is at an ISO of 800. Needless to say, I’m very happy with the results. The isolation and sharpness of the subject, while leaving the background in a state of creamy bliss, is just what I was hoping for.
