I am trying to do more outside dog shots...playing, running, etc.
I did a practice shoot with my dog and husband the other day (around 6:45-7:15 in pm).
My problem is I am not sure which focus type to use for such shots...single point, 3d tracking, etc??
I was shooting shutter priority or manual for the most part, a few in full auto to see what would work. I was switching between center focus and auto, 3d to see if any difference would show up...I can't tell what works best!
Most of the action was not quite frozen, but the main problem was alot of them were just nowhere near in focus...anywhere! I was using my new D90 with 18-105 lens, is the problem due to the 5.6 max opening?
I am going out this evening again to shoot at a dog park, what tips can you give so I can try again. Basically, in lower light outdoor situations what are you all using?
1. Nothing's totally in focus.
(f 7.1 1/250 iso200)
2.(f5, 1/500, iso 400) Same here, or is this blur?
3.(f 5.6, 1/100, iso 1600)No reason this would not be tack sharp...so what happened???
4. (f6.3 , 1/200 , iso 200) This one is good, but did I just get lucky? It was shot about the same as the other bad ones...
