Black and white ones were a bit dark as I had my ISO set wrong

Hastings Priory v Bromley, match happening as I type

Having your ISO set wrong shouldn't make your pictures dark, it may make them grainy but not dark. ISO 400 shouldn't be an issue.

 

Actually you've done quite well as in the sort of shot its often difficult to get detail in the whites which you have achieved.  The metering has probably got it right.

 

In your processing software drag the midtones toward the highlight end and you'll lift the darkeness in the background.

 

Edit: Just noticed your exposure bias was set to -1 EV, that is probably why a couple of shots are a bit dark in the mid-ranges.

With cricket in bright sun its usually best to underexpose and try pull back the shadows in post or if using Nikon use Active D Lighting

Good shots to use your example. I'm hoping to head down to the local cricket club one lazy Sunday afternoon over the summer, so useful tips cheers. :)

Just picked up a copy of my local newspaper, & my photo has been published that I sent to them, with a name credit, although it was slightly edited to be trimmed for size

Depends on the paper, nobodies getting rich in my neck of the woods selling to the local daily paper, not now its readership is only a shade over 6k a day.

 

As a starter for 10 I'd refer back to here for anything on a recurring basis.

Interesting about papers using photos. I have regularly sent pics to the local papers to promote the Tigers. I don't charge, but this is partly because I'm doing it to get the club in the press and to be honest like my pics being published. They sometimes remember to credit me.

Ask the paper if they will give you a free advert in the paper about the same size as they will print your photo, wait for their reply......................................................................... and thats why you should charge them for your photos.

Problen with giving them stuff for free is you'll have a job now convincing them to pay and why should they you've set the precident.  If your looking to start charging them at some point you'd be better off spending this season getting a portfolio together and then pitching for the gig next season with a rate attached.

If your just after seeing your stuff in print and your name at the bottom you might as well self publish, get together with a club, use there match reports, your pics, publish an e-book at the end of the season and split the profits with them.

Fair do's and in Bedford I'd imagine if you didn't then they probably wouldn't send anyone down to cover your matches so its good publicity for you as a club and your sponsors, were as in Wigan my view is if you want rugby shots send your own guy down or pay for mine!
