Thanks guys !

I shot with a D80 Aperture Priority and for some reason my shutter/fstop aren't showing up in the file info. It was cloudy that day and I had it fairly wide open w/ a very fast shutter. I managed to lock onto him and consistently follow as he went by, hence th clear subject and background blur.

I shoot w/ a 75-300mm and was at 200mm when I took this, ISO 400. I also bumped the levels a bit in photoshop for better color.

T'znutz, I'll take a look, but I'm not sure if I got any of you. I'm going to try to get everything I have online by the end of the week, so I'll let you know.

Ap priortiy... good idea, I usually use shutter priority and my panning skills are good, but this does make sence as far as getting the blur I've been looking for. Thanks for the tip.

If you're shooting in Shutter priority, that means your DOF, the blurred background, is not at a constant like it is with AP...

Many people say shooting fast action sports should be done with the shutter in mind. IMO if the sun is bright enough, which it normally is, you don't have to worry about shutter speed. I'd say 99% of your high speed motorcycle shots could be captured with the right camera movement and a shutter speed at anything faster than 1/500s.

Aperture is much more important. All I do is make sure the shutter doesn't drop below 1/30s handheld.


BTW, I peeked at the camera when she was shooting for 5 minutes and saw the shutter speeds real high, around 1/1600s, though that is constantly changing in AP mode.

Are these rhetorical questions or are you really asking?

But since you brought it up, why on earth would you use aperture priority when shooting a moving object? How do you plan on stopping, or controlling, the action in the photo? Its left completely up to the metering of the camera. So, one shot may be 1/1500, and the next could be 1/100. There would be dramatic changes in the photograph with these two shutter speeds. How do you plan on having consistency in your photographs?

Aperture priority is nice for static objects, where you want to control the amount of out-of-focus area. But in sports photography, you want to control the action in the photo, and that means having control over the shutter speed.

Either shoot in shutter priority, or manual. You cant leave shutter speeds up to the camera in an action shot.

I can always use the advice, I've never shot fast action motorsports...come to think of it, I've never done any sports photography. So anything anyone has to offer I'll take gladly. I definately learned alot out there just through trial and error, but I have a long way to go.

Thanks for chiming in
