You only need two remote triggers, you can optically slave the rest.

Thanks everyone! Now I know what to try next time. ;)

As far as a newer camera...........does anyone want to give me a loan?? LOL I HAVE thought about getting one of the "D" cameras, but just can't swing it right now. Especially since I just lost my job. But, hopefully can in the future.

Nice, especially for a game that late.

IMO, I agree with elrey, I wouldn't change much at all.

Side note, people in backgrounds can be aggrivating, especially with batting shots in little league. The backstop is just not that far away from the plate. I had one game where I was shooting down the first base line of our team batting. I was so focused on the game that I didn't notice some very unattractive woman (I know, I am mean) entered into the background and set up shop nearly in line with me. To make things worse, the level of the field is below the level of the ground behind the backstop so the people sitting behind the backstop are elevated above the players. Pretty much, when I kneel down and take a shot, their crotches are just about head level of the kids. Ended up with a whole series of crotch shots. /eek

I try to figure out each kid's "thing," and try to get them doing it. To show their personality in the pics........

For my Son, it's having his mouth wide open before he hits a ball. LOL Or, lifting his helmet up when he runs. This isn't good technically, but it shows what I mean. ;)

I feel if you can capture that kid, and their personality, other than JUST an action shot, the parents will appreciate it too. Unless of coarse their "thing" is picking their nose in the outfield or something. LOL

Good shots!

As everyone has already mentioned, I would ignore everything this guy posted:

TacCPhotography wrote in post #14443332 (external link)
You don't need to have that fast of a shutter, I don't know when I would ever go up that high! When I shoot sports, I will keep my ISO at 400, my shutter is never faster then 1/400, and my aperture is around f9.0 give or take. Your high ISO give off a lot of image noise. Great captures though, you definitely have the composition down. You just need to play with manual some more to figure out your shutter and everything.
In closing, your shutter was just to fast, which made the images dark, which made you want to turn up your ISO, which gave you image noise, which is probably why they look a tad OOF.

Usually give ;)

Tommydigi wrote in post #14443471 (external link)
1/400 could be a bit slow depending. I would try to get the ISO down a bit or get a camera to better handle 1600 but overall very nice shots. I shot my first tball game this past weekend and it was fun.

TacCPhotography wrote in post #14443507 (external link)
It's fast enough to stop the players, but gives the ball some motion blur to it.

elrey2375 wrote in post #14443706 (external link)
My thoughts exactly. Why would you want to use an aperture of F9? The idea in most cases is to not have the background in focus. The the OP, great stuff, I think they look great and I wouldn't change a thing.

TacCPhotography wrote in post #14443790 (external link)
I shoot a lot of karate, and it is hard to focus on them moving so fast.

ajaffe wrote in post #14443830 (external link)
F9 helps that? You should go F32 and strobe the arenas, that way you don't even have to focus.

Here's some C&C on the first batch.

1) Good exposure and sharp, however you're missing the eyes which is a big deal.

2) Some reason the face looks out of focus, but his glove is in focus. Wierd. Try to get shots of them head on.

3) Watch your backgrounds, the background on this one is horrible.

4) Face is out of focus and a tad bit under exposed.

5) No action really going on here.

6) No face

Ignore TacCPhotography's advice. You don't want to shoot sports @ F9.

You could have dropped your ISO down and lowered your SS though. 1/1200 is a bit too much for kids baseball.

Work on your focusing a little bit more. Exposure wise, you are good.

Remember, faces and clean backgrounds!

In my experience, getting kids batting, face in frame, with clean backgrounds is improbable.

Crop tighter and it becomes very probable.
