Angel - nice work. Without a doubt, the pitch is the best one - very unique and good affect freezing the ball so close.

Hi Angel,

Good shots and definition. Unless going for a general scene I would suggest going for a lower depth of field. Looking at the EXIF for the shots with the F717 you are at F8 but the camera will allow you to go as wide as F2 which would give a far more striking feel to the shots buy making the player you have concentrated on the focal point of the picture. The background and foreground would be out of focus completely changing the feel.

I would suggest using Aperture Priority and trying from f2 to f4 and see what the results are like. The when you are at the wide end (f2) then there is a chance that the shots will be a little softer but will also allow you to have a higher shutter speed when it gets a little darker. I have a lens that will allow me to go to f2.8, but find the best results are at f4 so mainly use these. Like most things in photography it is trail and error to learn what you kit will allow you to do and what works best.

Terry - do you use OPanda IEXIF? This is a great tool which will allow you to see the interesting information in a photo. For example here is the Exif for the first shot.

Make = SONY
Model = CYBERSHOT
Orientation = 0
Date Time = 2006-02-18 11:10:48

[Camera]
Exposure Time = 1/500"
F Number = F8
Exposure Program = Shutter priority
ISO Speed Ratings = 100
Exif Version = Version 2.2
Date Time Original = 2006-02-18 11:10:48
Date Time Digitized = 2006-02-18 11:10:48
Exposure Bias Value = -1.2EV
Max Aperture Value = F2.04
Metering Mode = Pattern
Light Source = unknown
Flash = Off
Focal Length = 39.2mm


Angel - keep on shooting/posting.... looking forward to see more of your work.

Regards,

Mark.

Thank you for the advice. I will use apeture priority this weekend and try to reproduce the same effect to see the differance. I do not think I can control depth of field with this camera, I hope I am mistaking, but I have not been able to have the background out of focus. Also I use f2 for night games when the lighting is very poor and the results are not so bad. Here is a pic.
