Hello to all,
It's been a while since I have posted....but I do love the information available on this forum.
I am hoping to get suggestions on these images. These are images taken of my grandson playing soccer. The time of day is around 5 PM. The photos were taken with my 5D Mark IV and my Canon 70-200 2.8 II. I use single point auto focus, back button focus. The camera on these shots was in Av mode....3.5 f-stop. I adjust the ISO to always keep the shutter speed above 1/800. I have used Canon Digital Professional 4 to check my focus point. The focus point on these images is on the chest of number 12. I use a monopod in a standing position to try to help keep the camera stable. I do tend to crop images...sometimes heavy cropping. I was standing on the sideline at mid-field when these were taken and the players are running towards me. Having said all of that I hope to get sharper images. I love this lens and I know it is capable of great images. Also I suspect camera movement is causing the soft images. I do use Lightroom for post processing but lately I have just been cropping the JPEG images right out of lightroom (not other adjusting) vs using RAW files and adjusting color, sharpness, etc.
The last image is not cropped....the first two are cropped. All three of these images were shot with SS 1/800, 3.5 f-stop, ISO 320
I would love to hear any suggestions.
I have not posted images in a very long time. I hope these file sizes are OK....if not just let me know.
Thank you in advance.
