Fantastic FluteLady Beautiful Flowers.................Ok Guys here's my first question. This Week I'll be taking photos of my son playing Football. Since we live in Arizona most of the pictures will be taken while there's still light out. However, for the last quarter it will be under the stadium lights. What should I set the camera to? I'll be using Sport mode for the daylight. I 'm just not sure the night setting is fast enough. and I don't think the flash will do much. Hopefully if I get under the stadium lights they'll be bright enough. Any Idea's? Remember now your talking to a complete Newbie......I know very little about cameras. Thanks Stacey

As soon as the lights come on check your camera. You need as fast a shutter speed as you can get. This will mean using a higher ISO. This means more sensitive to light so it takes less light to get the same picture. Then you need to set your aperature to a size that allows the fastest time. So using the A setting with your ISO at 1000 or higher set your shutter speed until you get the fastest time. Hopefully it will be enough to get the action.

The Highter the ISO number the more sensitive to light your lens is.
The Larger the aperature the less time you need to get the shot but the shorter the depth of field.

Before the big event practice with these principles until you understand them. Set your camera up on a tripod and just play with the ISO setting and the aperature setting. I hope this makes sense to you. Good luck.
