Get Into Sports Mode with Rockbrook Camera


The fall sports season is upon us and if you are planning to capture the action,
you'll need a good camera and lens.


One of the biggest challenges in sports and action photography is avoiding blur, especially in nighttime or indoor sports. To accomplish this, the camera needs to operate at fast shutter speeds, preferably 1/250th sec. or faster. Under bright, sunny conditions, this can be as easy as using the Sports Mode in your camera's auto menu.

For Indoor and night photography, more precise camera settings and some experimentation will be needed:

1. Set your camera to Aperture Priority and open the aperture to F/4 or larger to allow for more light transmission and a faster shutter speed.

2. If you are getting blur in your images, raise your ISO setting to increase sensitivity and raise shutter speed.

3. Set your camera to Continuous High in the Drive Mode to capture multiple frames in each shooting sequence.

4. Set your Autofocus to Al Servo Mode and "Pan" or more the camera with the subject to ensure sharp focus.

Know the sport to anticipate where the action will take place and be ready and in position to capture it. Try to shoot from a low camera angle from the sideline vs. simply shooting from the bleachers.
