Teach me about DSLR imagery


Recommended Posts

There are lots of places you can read about photography on line but it is not something that you will master in a month or even a year.


A few years ago I decided I was going to start taking pictures of motorcycle racing it took my almost 3,000

picture before I had the feeling that I could get the shots that I wanted. I would get some good shots but lots

of real real bad one's as well. It takes lots of shooting.




What I tell people is find a good camera club and join it. Most clubs love to teach and where you will learn

the most is having the members see your pictures and be able to explain to you how how you can make

them better. It was in a club meeting a sports photographer presented how to take good action shots,

and it was using what I learned from him that I started to refine my action shots.


Just like this forum find people that have the same love and you can learn a lot just by taking with them.

Thanks, I have been doing photography for over 40 years and it still took 3K shots to work out technique. Someone with their first SLR can get great shots but by taking lots of picture and look at every one and ask your self how could I make it better helps you grow. Clubs are a great way to get feedback as well.


With high speed action it does take good equipment and for that picture I was using a 300mm lens and doing a burst at 8 frames a second as they come around the corner. You might keep 1 out of every 10 to 20 frames and fill up memory cards fast.

That is just them playing, they do it all day long. It would have been a decent picture if I hadn't lost the light and I had something beyond 200MM.


I know I'm not a good photographer but I've been practicing. I at least know a little more about my camera now.
