Last year, when I started shooting a little baseball and softball, it was just pics of my nephew's kids. I'd shoot them at the plate, and then, at their field positions. I guess you could say I was shooting in more of a 'static' mode, than 'dynamic'. Since I was always shooting in manual, it wasn't a problem. But now, I'm shooting a LOT of baseball. and my stubborn 'manual' ways were causing me to miss shots. some of the fields I shoot at, can have the plate in shadows, and the infield in sun at the same time. I simply couldn't change settings quick enough to get the hit and the infield play. Then along came this thread by Frank;https://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/showthread.php?t=114723 I then realized that maybe I should give up my 'manual' ways, and try aperture prioity. It's still work in progress, and is different for this old-schooler, but I'm now getting shots that I would have otherwise missed. I'm now getting the hit and the infield play. :biggrin: So, thanks Frank for starting that thread and wakeing me up. :biggrin: Also, thanks to Mike, Randy, Topher, Twig, and the rest of you. I've learned a lot from all of you on this forum.
