I chose the wrong perspective on the first 3 photos. You got too much lit behind the subject and that ruined the shots!

I think he is referring to my first three shots on page one.

Thanks everyone for the replies regarding lens selection. I guess I will see how it goes with the 85mm f1.8, and adjust as the season goes on. Sounds like f2.8 is the slowest I should use, so that knocks out the Tamron... better start saving for another good lens!

Rich - great post on PP! That's the next thing I need to get into once I get my first set of pictures back. Our first meet is mid-December. It's funny to hear that you are off to states while we are just starting our season.

Mark,

Might I suggest that you get a smaller lens for after the meet. It is hard to block out the people moving around in front of you after a meet if you are having to take pictures from far away because of the length of the lens.

I am not a big fan of the stock lens but it works. Canon did just put out a new version of the 18 - 55 mm that is supposed to be a little more sophisticated than the stock.

My latest feeble attempt is here: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=407978

I had forgotten what a lighting mess these events are.....but a little pixel pull here, a little pixel tug there and Viola! ISO 3200:

Thanks Kori - good point. I might have to lug my "old" Panasonic with me for the first few meets for any close-ups. Actually it does a nice job at awards time. But I will check out the new Canon 18-55mm, thanks for the heads-up.

Just got the new Rebel XT camera body today! Unfortunately the lens and some other accessories have not shipped from Amazon yet even though I ordered it at the same time - how frustrating! :-(

Just got a sigma 20mm f/1.8 for those closeups/awards as I had trouble getting these shots at the last couple meets. I'll try it this weekend.:D report to follow

i just figured out that my iso settings jump from 1600 to 3200(h).. i'm guessing there's no ISO settings in between

Well don't feel bad...there isn't anything between 1600 & 3200 on the MKIIn either. :confused:

OK...here is another at ISO 3200 with about a 50% crop....wanted to see if the PP workflow allowed for any "meaningful" cropping before noise became unmanageable....

This look OK on my monitor but would like some feedback from others as each monitor is different....
