I want to shoot a photo that freezes the motion in action. I have the aperture wide open, shutter speed is as long as I can have it and still freeze the motion, the light I cannot control (e.g., outdoors and the flash will not reach what I am shooting, etc.) and/or is as bright as I can get it, and I am shooting in RAW. With all of that done the photo comes out really dark.
Beyond boosting the exposure in camera raw and hoping enough data is there for the picture and no clipping has occurred is there anything else I can do to freeze the motion in a shot in conditions that are not the best?
