Track Meet Photo Review with 1D Mark IV
« on: June 27, 2012, 06:36:55 PM »
So I was at a track meet and was positioned quite a ways from the track area.  I had a 300mm f/4L lens and a 1D Mark IV.  This event was nearing full dusk, so the ISO was at 1600 I believe in both cases and aperture was turned up to f/5.6.  Normally for these shots I like f/11 because I like more of the background in focus than what I got, but I already had the shutter speed down to 1/400s.  I did very little in processing, but I did a fairly large crop.  I wanted to point this out because the resolution is awesome despite such a large crop.  At the time I wasn't convinced I should really go higher ISO with the 1D4, but I guess looking at the photos now, should I have gone 1/500, higher ISO, and narrower aperture?  The shot from way across the track was fairly difficult from where I was but upon cropping, looked okay, minus the fans in the background, which I didn't really like how it turned out.  Thanks.  P.S.  If you open the photos themselves you get a full view.  Thanks.  Edit:  I'd like some help here from you guys.  You know I'd help you if I could :)

In better light, this was the Division II 3200 meter run.
