Step 1 of my post processing guide, and this is a step you have to take before you ingest your images to the computer: Shoot RAW. So there you have it, the secret to shooting in extremely dark rooms: prime lenses. I've really enjoyed the results and the d

My go-to lens for most shoots is a prime actually, the Sigma 35 1.4 art series I find that the 35mm is perfect for most situations to capture subjects head to toe, while still allowing me to get tighter if I just take a couple steps forward. If you go wild and shoot at f1.4, you will get some really unique results when you nail focus. Across the board, nearly all primes are sharper than a comparable zoom lens like a 24-70 f2.8. When you nail focus with a prime, the image quality is truly remarkable when compared to their zoom counterparts.

Again, because I'm all fancy and using my back button to grab focus, if the movement is say a snatch or a clean, during the setup I'm going to grab focus, and then during the lift I'm not going to refocus as long as the lifter doesn't shirt printing dubai move closer or farther away from me. If I used an "autofocus" mode and held down the focus the whole time, what would likely happen is the focus would grab onto the chest/bar/shoulder of the athlete and because of depth of field is so shallow, the end result image will be out of focus. There are a lot of stops between that and f 2.8, and even shooting at f1.6 or f1.8 will give you a great deal more light, but still give you some wiggle room in your focus.

And to be clear, if the eye is not in focus on the subject, the image is out of focus and useless. So in a dark setting, you're going to shoot wide open - as close to f2.8 as your lens allows - and then start cranking up your ISO as high as your camera allows. From there, include a variety of different types of shots as well as basic smooth camera motions.

To try and demonstrate this, here's a quick edit I put together for Because this was a really quick last minute shoot I actually handheld the camera. Now is a great time to make sure your shots have some variety between wide/medium/tight as well as motion. As a subject moves, they can easily go out of focus, and unless you're using an extremely expensive gimbal setup, you cannot change focus during the shot to track the subject.

More sturdy than a monopod, a tripod will produce even smoother, cleaner shots, but it comes at the expense of greater setup time, and less flexibility.
