Photography

I've heard conversation coming out of animal pens that is more intelligent than what is going on in here.

some pics i took at the ironman national a few weeks back, got into photography over the summer and just decided to go buy a t7 to pass some of the time in between races or motos. Defintely a good idea as Ive had a blast learning and messing around with all the settings, currently using a 75-300mm lense and i typically shoot at f/5 with a high shutter speed for still (1/1000) and lower (1/250 typically works best ive seen ) for those cool pans shots

The pictures look good! What do you typically use for ISO? I have been having this issue lately where if its a sunny bright day my pictures get like oversaturated with redish highlights on the edges of white color. I was shooting at f/4.5, shutter speed around 1/1250, and ISO of 200.

I'll link the latest library I took yesterday, its really only an issue when I have direct sunlight against the bike. Just look for some insight!

for me iso fluctuates between 400-1600 during the day, i sometimes go to 3200 during night shoots, iso is something i change the most throughout the day,this is all just my opinion and what ive sort of learned from doing way too many shots lols

See if I were to shoot at lets say 400 and 1/1000, my pictures would be extremely overexposed if it were a sunny day like yesterday

The reddish highlights are chromatic abberation and it has to do with the quality of your lens. Shooting settings and your camera body have nothing to do with it. Obviously coming from a person who has my photography pay for itself it's easier to say, but the best investment I could have ever made was investing in a used 70-200 2.8. Even the mark 1 version struggled with chromatic abberation, but the mark 2 version is basically flawless and the F2.8 is what makes it worth the money. I know the question wasn't for me but as for what ISO I personally use, the 2.8 allows me to use ISO 100 at 1/1250-1/2000th and f2.8 typically. I like to keep my shutter at 1/1250-1/2000 for moto and can bring it down to at most 1/800 if it's dark.

Basically, if you are to keep that 1/1250-1/2000 shutter speed and the widest aperture that your camera lens can do constantly (if it's a 4-5.6 then stick with 5.6), then all you need to do is change the ISO throughout the day, or if you hit ISO 100, then change to a faster shutter speed.

Now that's exactly what I am looking to read. I have asked so many people and no one would offer any help or resolution or even understood what I was trying to explain. Thanks for the info man, even though I just do the pictures for fun, I need to start saving for a better lens like you explained.
