Aperture:f/8
Focal Length:18mm
ISO:800
Shutter:1/500 sec
Camera:Canon EOS 7D


No, volleyball is not all we do around here on Saturday but it is definitely a favorite of the young people of our church.

Note the shutter speed and aperture used to make this picture possible. A 1/500th of a second is pretty much baseline minimum for action photography like this, with 1/1000th being preferable. Also, when there is a lot of movement forward and back, relative to the camera, stopping down the aperture to something like f8 is very useful for ensuring the subject stays in focus.

Enjoy!
