My latest fun with the camera is taking photos at any football game my husband drags me to. He watches the game, I watch through the lens. This is quite different than all the landscape/nature/fall photography I've been shooting for the last couple of months.
Instead of playing around with all the aperature and shutter speed settings I let the camera go on it's own and just set it on sports mode. Took all the guesswork out of it and I just shot randomly where I thought something was happening. The next game I'm going to I'll use a few more tips I picked up from some online sports photography searches. One thing that I read is that it is important to know the game to anticipate some of the action. Knowing nothing about football I just had fun going with pure instinct and seeing what I came up with.
