For most of these shots, I was planning on getting candid, spontaneous pictures, so I usually preset my camera to be prepared for when the moment arose.  These days, that either means setting my shutter speed to something that I know will freeze the action w/o costing too much in noise or setting the aperture wide open to decrease DOF and maximize shutter speed and ISO.

Canon 7D & 70-200mm/2.8 II & 580EX II. f2.8, 1/2000, ISO 100 with high speed sync on camera flash. AV mode, -1 exposure to the background, 1/4 color temperature orange gel.

Next time I'll shoot this with my new 5D3.

Edit: I swear it doesn't look that crappy and gray on my computer. Any clues what the upload problem could be?

I enjoy checking back from time-time to see what others are seeing.  Still curious as to the 'go-to' settings people use.  I just set up my Custom functions button on my 5d3 this AM as a trial to:

1/120s,
F5.6,
auto ISO (limit at 3200),
Single shot AF with center point and surrounding 8 point expansion

and will be doing some 'crowd' shots at a VB match tonite - hope to have some to display  :)
1Dx, 1DIV, 5D3, 7D, (Sigma 15 FE)
16-35/2.8; 24-70/2.8 II; 70-200/2.8 II, 100-400L
35/1.4, 40/2.8; 50/1.2, 85/1.2, 135/2; 200/2

My 'preset' candid settings didn't work out as planned, but in a break in the action, I caught one of the players messing around with the ball...maybe not exactly a candid, but shows off the 5d3 135/2 combo.

Camera   Canon EOS 5D Mark III
Exposure   0.001 sec (1/800)
Aperture   f/2.2
Focal Length   135 mm/F2 lens
