At the new skate boarding park today: still some work today with practice of focus etc!

For some reason can't get the exif right now, and if I go back to Lightroom will lose the connection and have to start again. I think most were taken at f/7.1 or 6.3, on the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8. I wondered about opening up the lens more, but wanted all the boarder in focus. What would be a good guideline here.

Oh and if I choose a focus point rather than zone, should it it be the face, or the board? I suppose it depends what you want to emphasise. I think I reverted to single shot for these few, and they are better than the A1 servo

Those shots are too tight, i would sit back a little bit. There's so many ways to photograph Skating, i don't know where to start other than look at some Photos of Skating pictures or watch some tutorials of How To on YouTube. I know a lot of Photographers use Wide Angles or Fish Eyes with Flashes. You could try to sit back than use the 17-50mm at 50mm f2.8. That should blow out the background a little bit. If the amount in focus is an issue, the 55-250mm might work. The focus is kinda slow but you could predict it and do it manually. The 55-250mm will probably Blur the background a lot more than the 17-50mm and it'll also be more in focus.

Spotted 5 of these flying around in a small flock, and managed to get one of the Meadow Pipit, sat on the plastic protection around a sapling, at Brockholes LWT in Preston.

Back to the skate board park today briefly to give them some copies of yesterdays efforts. Couldn't resist of course .... have cloned out some pesky lamp posts as composition in this environment is a challenge. Actually the whole genre is a challenge!

The first has no cloning - just cropped etc.

Lots of great pics above.
Paul I see you are mastering the birds quickly; I also wanted to thank you (should have long ago) for posting up the EXIF along with the photograph.

Got quite the gift on Christmas day when I discovered a 70D under the tree for me, saving me from having to buy one for myself. :lol:
