Lesson Info

Single Shot with Action Shots

Let's, go ahead, move to the second demonstration. What we're going to do now is have you running along this road, we're going to shoot it from the side and I'm going to go ahead and switch to my rebel while we do this, but what we're going to do is we can use single shot still, when we're shooting basically perpendicular, toothy action, what I mean is if he vets running on a road going this way and I'm shooting going this way, well, the relative distance from me too, my subject is really quite similar at different points of that path. Yes, it does change a little bit, but as long as we're shooting kind of further back and we're not necessarily at at one point to our f one point oh, it's still going to be sharp enough that we can still use single focus in these kind of situations where we just kind of track over the subject, I'm going to show you guys exactly. I mean, I'm gonna stop talking. Let's, go ahead and get our setting set up on our canon rebel here we're gonna do is I'm going ...

to shoot it f to let's, go ahead and get a reading on the scene. In this case, I can use my live you and my preview, and it looks like at a hundred of a shutter speed. So a hundred of a second at f two and is a one hundred is right about it's spot on. I'm gonna go actually tow one one thousand one without going to freeze all the action really well, the other thing I'm going to do, I need to make sure is let's, go ahead and move into the menu. I'm going to turn on my single shooting were going to make sure that it's actually on continuous shooting, so we get more than one frame at a time. Ok, so after I get the focus, I'm going to keep shooting as she moves through the frame. So there's a line in the road that's actually just perfectly kind of showing where she's going to be running, where the action is going to be occurring. So what I'm gonna do is just pre focus ryan that line, and then I was going to hold it all the way through the shot. I think I see it works, actually incredibly well. Let's, go ahead and just grab our pre focus, okay, I'm gonna do is just hold down the shutter halfway to hold it, and event let's, start the action. Perfect. All right, that's. Perfect. We've got the shot. We use single shot in this case, even though there was action going on. Okay, so now, let's, move on to the servo, moz.

Ratings and Reviews

I watched this class "live" and was simply amazed at the amount of information Pye covered. Yes, he talks a little fast, and since I was streaming the class I couldn't stop it to review anything, but this guy really knows his stuff and explains it very well so I absorbed quite a bit. Bye is enthusiastic, clearly enjoys his craft, and delivers excellent information to students in a light heartedI and fun way. I think some reviewers are a bit harsh about his humor. Lighten up, people! His examples and the additional information his co-host provides are very worthwhile and you can tell the course was well thought out. I plan to buy the class to help me get back into DSLR photography.

I really enjoyed this class. I am not a beginner, but there were still things I learned here that I found helpful. I really enjoy learning from Pye. He is quick, gets to the point and doesn't spend a lot of time going over and over the same point. There is a wide variety of things that he covers, so really something for everyone. I would recommend purchasing this class if you want to understand your camera better, improve your technique and start taking better photos.

I have tried to learn photography myself via the internet / YouTube but always felt like I was missing something in my foundation. Sure I can zero out my meter...but why? How do I know the settings I've selected are the correct ones? I've been circling this drain for a year until this course. WOW! Pye has SO MUCH information in every video. He doesn't just stand in a classroom and talk, he's out in the field actually putting his settings into his camera, talking about why and why not and then shooting. He's hands on the entire course. You don't just hear him, you see exactly what he's doing! I'm a visual / listening learner and this is my eureka moment! Thank you Pye! Watching the Exposure video and how you changed the settings yet maintained the exact same exposure was mind blowing. Awesome course! I would recommend this to anyone new to photography or anyone that feels like they don't have all the info.
