    I know a few of these are blurry and that's what I'm looking for help with. These were shot with my D60. What can I do in lower light conditions while shooting action pictures to get a better picture? Any words of wisdom would help and be greatly appreciated.

    [​IMG] here's another to try to give you an idea of what type of conditions I'm trying to shoot in. Usually wooded with crap for light.

    the tons of chromatic aberration seems awful in the full size.

    Angles are way too boring. They don't show much action.

    Try cropping tighter and upping your shutter speed. If you want to show movement, pan WITH the rider. Don't just snap a photo.

    I'd kill to be able to shoot some MTB stuff like that!

    they are blurry because your shutter speed was 1/80th of a second. in order to get a faster shutter speed you will either need a lower aperture or higher iso. since you were using iso 800 already, i would try lowering the aperture or getting a better lens that allows you to use a lower aperture.


    edit - good idea with the panning. that would force your slower shutter speed to work for you. :cool:

    Good suggestions......I might add that panning with a slow shutter with a wide angle might net your best results. I have an opp to shoot with some guys riding bikes Saturday.

    the 2nd one would have been a bad ass shot if the bike(r) wasnt so blurry. The composition on it is on point.
