    Especially in Sports / Basketball.

    1. I'm already at high ISO if it's indoors and the correct exposure for black people's skin is pretty dark (ESP if they're a dark chocolate nugga straight out of Africa) so there's more noise in their skin.

    2. They're darker and reflect less light so they're harder to focus on.

    3. I can sometimes see purple fringing around their eyes against their dark skin.

    4. They move so fast I have trouble tracking them.

    Please have a sense of humor.

    All of these points are actually based off difficulties I've had with indoor volleyball and basketball.

    it's because they move faster, set your shutter accordingly.
