Action pics with D90 and 55-200
Aug 16, 2009

Hello Everyone,

My old soccer team was playing so I decided to visit and capture some close up action. S speed was set to 500 and F from 8 to 11. Most pics taken at about 120 to 200mm. Tested my focusing technique set at: Dynamic, S or C. Single, S or C.

As before sharpness/focus was just ok, but I must add, it was not as crisp as I like it.

I was able to capture some good images just becasue I know the sport and was able to anticipate, but even with knowing the game the set up was having a hard time keeping up and focusing. As a result I also have several great action images out of focus.

So, is it the D90 or the 55-200 or am I missing some other way of thinking?
Action photography is not my thing, but I was just interested in learning.
Or do I take 500 pictures and just show and/or be happy with 2 or 3 good ones.
