Pyro, I take shots of my son and his friends on a high school equestrian team...and I'm always trying to improve my technique. May I ask what your settings were in these shots? Was there some natural light available from windows to support the arena lights I see? Thanks!
Really crisp - nice ISO performance from the 5D II
I am a little uneasy with some of the crops. If they were mine, I would look at maybe 10% off right in #1, I'd love to remove the official on left in #2.
#5 is interesting for me - again full of dynamic energy but fair bit of wasted space on left and right. However the killer for me is the red illuminated sign directly above the rider's head. I'm thinking aaarrrrgh!!! Just one of those unfortunate coming togethers that happen in fast paced action scenarios.
I would be rapt if I had taken these - some are just begging to be framed singly or as a collage.
Very nice work - I look forward to seeing more.
Comments and constructive criticism always welcome.
Very little light from the outside, in fact I had rather there not be. I can work with the indoor lighting, but when it mixes at different points in the arena, it throws off my WB.
Settings were 1/500th, f/3.2, ISO on auto normally around 6400. I set the camera up with the shutter speed & aperture setting I want, then let the camera adjust the ISO according. Shot in AL servo in case #2. Works for me.
One from a recent outdoor event.
That last shot is beautiful!!
(nitpick time) is it straight? Look like it is leaning to the left - see barrel and electricity post???
One helluva photo!!
