I have a question for those of you that bring DSLRs to the parks! What kind of tweaks do you make to the settings to get ride shots? I tried messing with the settings quite a bit on my last trip and it just wasn't working. (I've had the camera for a while, even took a photo class last year. But I just haven't used it enough since to remember everything!) Thanks in advance for any tips you have!
what issue are you having? to dark? blurry? etc

Mainly too dark. - PiecesOf8   600.5 #324 5-9-12 12:40PM Like  Reply
the shutter speed and aperture are probably your 2 biggest issues. you need to allow the shutter to remain open longer to allow more light/exposure. however this can result in blurry photos. my best advice is keep at it. try all kinds of different settings and combinations. you will find what works best, and unfortunately sometimes what works in one situation doesnt for another. good luck!

In dark situations, low aperture and highest ISO. For dark rides, slower shuttle speed than usual. - BaseballMickey_CM   7257.3 #9 5-9-12 1:00PM Like  Reply
Thank you both very much! I will keep trying. :) - PiecesOf8   600.5 #324 5-9-12 1:33PM Like  Reply
I have found that often keeping the camera on f/5 or so does well but like they have mentioned, just messing around and figuring out your camera is best. I've been taking pictures in the park with someone who actually has a different brand of camera than me and it has helped me learn my own camera immensely! - IDVandalSkipperCM   2412.7 #55 5-9-12 1:40PM Like  Reply
I'm hoping someone I know will bring their camera one of the next times we go. That should help because most of my friends have similar cameras. - PiecesOf8  600.5 #324 5-9-12 1:54PM
I'm going to the park today with my Nikon d90 to shoot - fiveeye   218.8 #1702 5-9-12 2:07PM Like  Reply
