So this weekend my uncle would like me to take some pictures of his middle school basketball team as they play. I told him I never shot sports before but ill give it a try. I know I'm limited with what I can do since the gear I have (T3i, and the lens) but Ill like to make the best of what I have.
My plans are to use my 55-250mm lens. So most of the shots would be at f/5.6
I plan to shot in Manual mode to keep the f/stop at 5.6. and shutter 1/400 or 1/500 (maybe ISO at 800 i hope...) I'm hoping the lights in the gym will be bright so the setting above wont be dark.
any advice or tips? You can see my gear below.
