So Close, Don’t Stop Now!
The weekend is almost here, the weekend when many can get back out and shoot! Whether you have been working 9-5 or Stay at Home, in either case, your basic skills might need sharpening, now’s the time to sharpen! You know what I’m talking about, I’ve mentioned it a few thousand times before. Hand-holding and panning, practice the rest of the week so you’re ready to go this weekend. Watch Basic Handholding and Panning videos I’ve posted to remind yourself. Then go out and do some practice by really pushing yourself!
This is perfect for those of you with kids at home, all you need are two kids and a tennis ball. Now, set your camera to the settings you prefer (I use Shutter Priority 1/60, AutoAreaAF), put your kids about 30-40 feet apart and have them toss the tennis ball between them. Now, you FOCUS and get SHARP images of that ball going back and forth. Simple! Do this for 15-20 minutes every day and you’ll be ready for the action this weekend.
