I don't understand this comment. Who was talking about horse racing? We all realize you're shooting American football.

  • set exposure for faces
  • use manual exposure and "why"
  • questions from experienced football shooters on whether there is an actual policy against external flash (because, as shown and explained, the flash can absolutely "reach the players")
You ignore all this information and opportunity to discuss/learn and decide the best course is a [email protected] retort to a comment 5 posts up?


And you really want those of us with experience to help you out?

kazuya and I drifted somewhat off-topic briefly, but we were right back with you when you memntioned that you'd be renting an appropriate lens. Sorry if that threw you for a loop.

sorry if i caused any confusion, but my post wasnt really about what kind of sport, (although there are similarities, moving subjucts in bad light) it was more just advice that basicly ment no matter how good the gear without lots of practice you wont produce good photos and nobody will buy them.
and i only said that in case you thought (like lots of people do) if i buy all the right gear ill get good photos, which anyone here will tell you isnt true
if you just want advice on camera settings id set camera to aperture priority, set the aperture as wide as possible then if needed raise the iso to get a decent shutter speed
P.S the title does say "help sports photography"
