Received my new 7D camera about a week ago now and I am using a sigma 50mm 1.4 lens on it at the moment. Saved a few hundred euros buying it online. Since I will be studying Film and Visual Image making soon, every saving counts. I am trying to build a film making/photography kit from scratch, on a truly tight budget! I had a lovely day out at the beach and took alot of informal portraits etc that unfortunately I cannot show here. The difference between the 7D and my old coolpix is astounding. The sigma lens is great too. Even though all my shots were hand held and I am brand new to this camera the 7D and sigma combination produced stunning results. Every one was in focus even though I didn't have the camera in Al Servo mode for moving subjects like children running or moving boats, seagulls bobbing in...
I set myself an assignment the other day, to capture animal movement with my new sigma 70-200 2.8 OS lens and new Canon 7D.
Being fairly new to photography and exploring my new kit, I was eager
to get some decent shots. Put the camera on TV mode and tried various speeds from 500 to 1200.
Here's one that Dreamstime accepted.
Any tips, on capturing movement from any wildlife/sport's photographers among you?
To capture the movement of animals you have to use a technique called "panning", you must disconnect the stabilizer lens and use the slow as 1 30 1 15 of a second, try and make all possible experiments, while the important thing is' animal moves you have to hook it with the autofocu and follow it with the lens, like a camera. To perform this technique, I suggest you set the fotrocamera in depth manual and close around the iris, perhaps adding a polarizer, though there is much sun. Hope that was helpful! Greetings!
