I've been shooting high school bands for near a decade now. Your question as asked is hard to answer because there are too many variables you have left out. What type of photos are you after? Wide angle shots with a large portion of the band or closeups of individual members? What will your shooting position be? In the stands (how big is the stadium and ...

You're pretty much comparing apples and oranges here - the 24-105 and 70-200 cover very different focal length ranges. You need to get a lens which covers the range of focal lengths you're going to need. That obviously transforms the question into "what focal length do I need?" - and the answer to that depends on where you're going to be standing relative ...

I would take a 70-200mm with f/2.8 and image stabilization. It could be like Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM but such lenses are very expensive. Scott Kelby has a lot of articles concerning photography on stadium in his blog. For example: enter link description here

If you photograph a Whole band then the 70-200 might be a no go.. You need to know how many people there are and be sure that you dont have to be too far away to get everybody in. So probably the 28-105 is a better option if your choice is between these two. Yesterday i photographed a couple, full body with the 70-200 and had to stay 20 meters away to get ...

I had this problem in Low light with the AF Assist Light still coming on. What I found was that using the Live View is completely different to focusing while keeping Live view off. I just stopped using Live view and the problem was immediately solved. Of course the AF Assiste light was working in my case for both scenarios.

Nice questions! Here is what I did to take the following photos Choose your room. It should be dark. I took my photos at night with only the candles lighting the area. Set up your still life in an arrangement that you are satisfied with. I used a serving tray table to provide easy movement of the arrangement to the background. The background, you ...

To counter the situation in low light, You can increase your ISO which increase the sensitivity to light. Open your aperture which let in more light Lower your shuttle speed which let more light in You need to play around with all theses as there isnt a right setting

The problem is that indoors you've got lower light conditions, and with sports being fast-moving you need a fast shutter speed to "freeze" the action. You'll typically be shooting far above 1/focal length speeds, so stabilization of any kind is not going to be particularly helpful. The first thing you should consider is cranking up your ISO, shooting RAW, ...

When shooting sports or action Indoors which happens to be, “Not a professionally lit sports event”, you have to consider the following; Number One - Aperture The wider the aperture, the more light you have to freeze the frame and keep your images lit as brightly as possible My bare minimum recommendations for such events for camera such as the Canon 70D ...

Unfortunately, this isn't a problem you can fix with settings on your camera. While a lot of situations aren't about the gear, this is one that is - there's just no way that either your 18-55 or 18-200 will be able to get any sort of reasonable sports photos indoors. Look for a lens which is at least f/2.8 or faster - the classic sports lens is the 70-200 ...

As previously stated, your best shot is with backlight. I would say candle between the objects you want to photograph and a wall. Since candles are likely to be dimmer than artificial light, I would not consider using the last ones if you still want the candles to have their own effect. My guess is that if you light the candles and let them illuminate your ...

Since you like to create a silhouettes, you will need to backlight your subjects. Backlight as it name, basically mean puting the light source behind your subject. In your case, you will want to put the candles behind the subjects. If you like a clean background of your subject then backdrop will be needed to have if you are unable to find a suitable ...

I think you will have a generic answer on this... (I'll explain this point at the end) I wish to create silhouettes of still life objects with candle lights... Where are the candles supposed to be placed Where you want the light. On the oposite side of the place you want the shadow. and do I need a backdrop? If you want a backdrop to show in the ...
