Nice shot, Nick! Welcome to the forum!!

Thanks guys! Still have some work to do on the drops. I couldn't get the flash reflection out of the drops, so I think I'm going to resort to my 50mm and try to eliminate the flash. You guys should try it, it's pretty cool.

Nice shot NCHANT. What filter did you use to capture that? I have a 12" Dobsonian telescope with a Solar filter but it hasn't been sunny since I bought this camera. Go figure :(


Shooting photos never killed anyone,

Thanks :) didn't use any filters on that one, just the 55-250mm kit lens, focused on the sun and shot at 1/4000, ƒ/22, ISO 100, 250 mm. The sun was hiding behind a misty cloud (thanks to the Australia bushfires...) so the sun was quite dim in the sky. I guess you can say I used a cloud filter?

Just popping in here to say hello. I am TOTALLY new to taking a more serious look into photography. Bought a T3i 2 weeks ago. I have to tell you I am getting frustrated! I know it takes time and practice but I thought I could at least get decent shots in auto LOL for the ones I needed. *sigh*

Anyway....love looking at everyones work!!! Great pics!

Thanks Rick! I am having some serious issues with action shots. They will look decent on the camera screen but when I upload them onto my computer they look like crap if I try to zoom....I feel like I got better shots with my kodak z950! At least it always stopped motion. hmph I know its user error....

I will check out Youtube.

Learn to use manual mode, that way you have total control. For action shots, you need your shutter speed high if you want to stop action. Were you shooting indoors? What sport? If you're outside, you should be able to shoot fast.

Yes it was indoors. Basketball game. I now cannot remember where I had the shutter speed but i know I had to up the iso they were coming out dark. What shutter speed is a good place to start for that kind of sport? Its a bunch of 8 yo too...

Which lens were you using? You're going to have to have your aperture as 'low' (which is really 'high') as possible (wide open), like 4.0 or 2.8 if you can, and start with your shutter at 500, and I'd start with an ISO of 1600, but you may have to go to 3200 or 6400. It really all depends on the actual lighting in the gym. Some have better lights, some have skylights or windows, etc... That's where I'd start, but there isn't a set rule because lighting can vary so much. If you shoot slower than 500, everything will blur (In my opinion).

Wow, that reply is hard to read, lol, sorry about that...let me try this...

ISO - start @ 1600, then 3200 or 6400 if required
Shutter - start @ 500, move to 640 if you can
Aperture - as low as the number goes for that lens. If you're using a 55-250, 4.0 is where you want to be

I was using the 55-250 lens. Is that the problem? I get confused with the aperture. So having it wide open is a f # that is high or low? I can't seem to grasp this cuz for some reason it seems backwards to me. I did change the WB to fluorescent. Is that a no no?
