|Quoting Dylanfwhit (Thread starter):|
Having taken this with a low lighting condition, what should I have done? It seems a bit blurry, would I be able to make it look "Airlines worthy" with some Photoshopping? I had taken it in the "sport" mode. What are the optimal settings for snapping shots of aircraft?
|Quoting Viv (Reply 2):|
Rather than "Sport" mode, shoot in Shutter priority (Tv) or Aperture Priority (Av). Make sure in each case that your shutter speed is not numerically lower than the amount of zoom you are actually using (e.g. the shutter speed for zoom of 200mm should not be less than about 1/200/sec.). Also, try to keep your aperture in the range f/7 to f/11, for maximum sharpness.
Finally, use the lowest ISO setting the available light (and your camera) will allow while respecting the shutter speed and aperture settings.
Practice smooth panning to minimise camera shake - one hand under the lens body, arms braced, swing your upper body rather than just your arms, smooth press of the shutter button..
