Hello. I have been reading posts on here for too long without having asked what I'm hoping someone will find to be a simple question! I take collegiate level ice hockey pictures for my University. I have always loved taking shots, but just recently invested in a Nikon d200. I have a 55-200 VR lens and a 70-300. I have been a hockey fan and spectator for many years and have absolutely no problem finding the right shot. What I'm struggling with is a few small (user induced) camera glitches (or so I think?). I have read about an experienced the low lighting issue. I'm not here to complain more about it- but just wanted to let ya'll know that I have to get past that, and need your help in doing so! I attached a few pictures and I believe that the settings used were: Auto ISO, max 1600. Aperature priority. CH mode, with auto white balance to compensate for the reflection from the ice without overexposing to cause a whiteout- or under exposing so the guys have grey ice and faces. I have tried to read the manual but some of the terminology gets mixed up in my mind. I think this past game I was changing my exposure and thought it was fixing the white balance. Or maybe it's the same?I have the shutter speed set at maximum 1/250. That is as high as it would let me go, so perhaps I am restricting the setting with another manual setting. I can see that several other posts on photo.net have significantly higher speeds than that. I would greatly, greatly, appreciate any feedback and help you may be able to offer. I absolutely love to shoot the games, and the school has used a few of my shots already, so if I can get past the luck and into consistency I'd be eternally grateful! Thank you for your time!
