Help with Soccer photo please
I'm also going to photograph horses and kids riding later this week - since it's also in motion I figured I might need more pointers on settings for that as well.
Thanks in advance!
Well, with this kind of fast sports, you need a fast shutter speed to freeze the motion.
The settings of the shot will depend on what you want to create. When you shoot someone with a really high shutter speed, the person will be frozen and you will see no action, no movement, when you take a slight slower shutterspeed (and compensate with other settings like the aperture and ISO) you can get some movement in the image which make it feel more personal, like some flying dirt, or even the moving ball. I think it will be great to capture the person frozen, and a moving ball.
The settings wil depend on light conditions and that kind of stuff. Just keep in mind that you need a high shutter speed. I personally bump my ISO up to be guearanteed to have high shutter speeds and i can change the shutter speed.
I also use the TV mode on my camera sometimes to set the shutter speed and change that on the go. So i can decide what kind of motion i capture.
Well... hope i helped you somehow with this text in the length of a book
