A few more from Saturdays games, I am realling likeing the auto ISO and manual exposure on the D# and the D300. I am goign to upgrade the firmware on both cameras before I shoot thsi weekend. Cant beelive that the D3 AF has been improved upon it is incredible already and the D300 is no slocuh either.
OK well these were with the D3 and the 300 2.8 with 1.4 tele

I tried auto-ISO with the D300 once and tried to set the SS and aperture, but for some reason my results weren't anything like this. I think it has a lot to do with the photographer. :biggrin:

Great series mike as always!

Geez....where to start. Excellent.

How about some pointers for us mere mortals?

How do you meter? How are these cropped? ...and dear God tell us how you handle the post process work and sharpening.

I agree with Dave. It's definitely the photographer! I have the same equipment and have used Mike's recommendations and my shots are nowhere near these.

Great job Mike.

Mike,

Great stuff!

I have been quietly watching Café for some time, and you never cease to amaze me.

These are outstanding. Most are looking for your settings, however you really have a great way of capturing a lot of feeling and emotion.

Nice series Mike though I don't think number 10 works w/o a ball though it does work for #5. bw, I think you're nuts working all day Saturday and Sunday. You'll blow a hole through your shutter. :cool: How much do you add to your shutter count each day?

Mike already mentioned he shot manual and ISO-Auto combo. He shot 4 games and knowing his employer's photo needs, Mike probably shot 6k images combined for those games. May be more useful to ask Mike how he shot the games and why since the settings are situation specific. i.e. How he selected his shooting position, how often did he vary his position, what type of lighting situation he had to deal with, why he varied his aperture and speed throughout the day when his ISO floated anyway? As the EXIF data shows his settings were different during different times of the day. The first image was at 9am and the last image was taken about 2pm in the afternoon. The aperture ranged from f4 to f/5. Shutter was anywhere from 1/1250 and 1/3200. Why did he manually select these figures? The f/4 is not too difficult to figure out since he had a 1.4 tele on a 300/2.8.
