I know, I know ... this question has been asked a thousand times in a thousand different ways, but, since football season is wrapping up and there are some newly seasoned practitioners on Photo.net, I’m hoping that more wisdom and understanding will be presented this time. Specifics: Nikon D80, Nikor 80-200mm f/2.8 (1) What is the absolute lowest shutter speed I can use for poorly lit high school football games using the above equipment? What is the formula used to determine this? (2) Has anyone used Exposure Compensation to get a better, cleaner shot? As far as lighting and reduced noise, I’ve had the greatest success using Program Mode, but many of the good shots are blurred (because Program Mode reduces the shutter speed in order to capture the light). I’ve tried using Aperture Priority (f/2.8), which gives excellently lit photos, but, most of the subject is blurred, with the exception of the area of focus (the face or football). This leaves two remaining options: Shutter Priority and the dreaded MANUAL. I have to admit, I’m not fearless, so I’m hoping someone that shoots excellent pictures using Shutter Priority will bestow his/her wisdom upon me!
