ISO is a camera setting which controls the light sensitivity in the camera of digital cameras. The lower the ISO, the more sensitive the sensor is (in other words it can capture more photons at a given level of light coming through) and this results in less blurriness of specular reflections due to underexposure. This is key for low-light photography where not only can we not rely on ambient lighting, but also in bright natural daylight where underexposure is an issue unless you have adequate high gain flash, or need painting with your aperture wide open because it\u2019s so bright outside.This is an article about what is iso in photography. If you have any questions, ask them in the comments below.
1. Prepare to Use High ISO
Looking to capture the perfect shot but maybe the lighting isn’t great? Trying to stop the action at a little league game and needing a higher shutter speed? Raising the ISO on your camera will allow you to shoot at a higher shutter speed, giving you a better chance of getting the perfect shot.
2. Try Something Different
Every sports picture doesn’t have to look the same. A few years ago, several photographers from a little American magazine tried something different for football. Instead of shooting at eye level, they laid as low to the ground as they could in the end zone with a wide angle lens.
3. Don’t Forget the Surroundings
This may seem like a no-brainer, but don’t forget your surroundings. Whether it be a stadium full of cheering fans, to the tailgating outside, the surroundings present unique opportunities to capture the spirit of the game without shooting the action itself.
4. Be Prepared With an Equipment Belt or Bag
Ever wonder why sports photographers carry so much equipment? It’s because we like to build bigger muscles while walking.
5. Long Glass Goes a Long Way
The key to capturing the perfect shot in sports comes down to relatively few things. One of the most important things is glass. Sports photography, unlike any other type, occasionally requires the biggest and most expensive equipment available.
6. Don’t Chimp, Please
Every sports photographer is guilty of "chimping". If you’re unfamiliar with the term, this definition will clear everything up.
7. Use a Slow Shutter Speed
A slow shutter speed? Earlier I said to use 1/1000 of a second to capture the action and stop it…
