To get good pictures you have to stay at least at the same speed as the aperture:
100mm - 1/100sec mini
200mm - 1/200sec mini
if you are in automatic mode, the camera says" there is no enough light, the aperture is max (f:2.8 or f:4) so i shut down the speed." and go against the rule. you have several solution:
1 you stay in automatic mode and take yor photos with a tripod.
2 you put your camera in speed pririty, with the good speed, and try not to moove during the shoot (you can put your camera on something stable)
3 you tune up the iso

nikon cameras make pictures at night versus canon cameras which are only usable on weekdays during daytimes. some older nikons don't make as good a picture during holidays but it depends on ethnicity

to much sun or heat they need more shade then what you are giving them and also do not water them during the day time only water them in early morning between 7 and 8 am or at night around the time the sun is going down. watering during the day will also burn them.

Night Photography


Wait until the sun goes down.

In many ways night photography is just like day photography, except there's less light. With less light, you need a slower shutter speed, a wider aperture, a faster ISO, or a combination of all three. Or else you need to add light.

Just like day photography, the best camera settings (and other things) depend on what you want the photograph to say to the viewer.

You can add light by using the flash, car headlights, etc. The flash doesn't have much range; if you're sitting in the stands at a night sporting event your flash isn't going to affect any pictures you take of the action on the field. Another effect of the short range is that if you take a flash picture of a person at night, you're likely to have an almost completely black background. If you want something of the background to show, use the Night Portrait mode (and a tripod).

If you want to take a picture of a night landscape (or the night sky, with star trails) then turn off the flash. Put the camera on a tripod or other steady support and use a slow shutter speed.

If you're taking a picture of the full moon, then it's not night photography at all. The full moon is just a big rock under a midday sun, so treat it as such.

How I do fix blurry nite pictures


set the Asa as high as possible, use a tripod or mono pod and don't shoot when people are running. You basically just don't have enough light and your lenses are way too slow. That's why you see those huge lenses on pro photogs cameras at football games - they gather much more light and allow them to shoot at higher shutter speeds that freeze the action. It also depends upon how much light is on the field - they use a lot of light for pro sprorts

What setting do i use on my samsung BL103 digital camera to take pictures at a footbal game?


If it's a day game, use the Sports setting. If it's a night game, turn off the flash, turn the ISO up as far as you can, and cross your fingers.

I have a Nikon D5000 and my daughter is a competitive cheerleader and every competition the lighting is always dark and on the stage is really bright. My problem is i can't seem to get good pictures with...


Photographing in low-light situations is always problematical. I'm going to assume you can't add more light, and go on to other things.

The blurring is caused by subject motion. Because the light level is so low, the shutter has to remain open for longer and thus a moving subject blurs.

Raise the sensitivity of your camera to light. Turn the ISO up. This will lead to digital noise, looking something like film grain. However, given the choice between a grainy picture and no picture...

Use the fastest lens you have, and open it up all the way. Switch to the Aperture-priority mode by turning the mode dial to A and turn the command dial to get the largest aperture (smallest f/number). This will give you the fastest shutter speed possible under the conditions. Unfortunately, the kit lenses usually sold with the D5000 are not very fast. If you see professional photographers at a basketball game or a night football game, you'll notice they're using big lenses. Unfortunately, such lenses cost $2000 and more.

Try to catch the action at its peak. For example, during a jump there's a brief instant when she stops going up and is yet to start going down. You may have to take dozens of pictures just to get one good one, but you're not paying for film and printing the bad ones, so take pictures. Lots of pictures.

The flash is only good up to 10 feet....are you that close? If not, turn off the flash and turn up the ISO to make the camera more sensitive to the lower light levels.

Hi, I've been taking pictures outside when I've got error 99 on my Canon 40D. It was dump outside so when I came home I put the camera in the warm place for the night. Next morning it was warking fine and...


this is what the canon people say to do for error 99


Read this!!!


The guy at tech support listened and then told me that the lens contacts were dirty and to get a pencil with an eraser on the end, just a regular old pencil with a red rubber eraser. Detach the lens from the camera, hold it so that the lens’ gold contacts are pointing down and lightly erase their exposed surface, cleaning them of any hand oil that might have gotten on them.

Do the same thing with the gold contacts inside the camera body. This is a bit harder but it’s doable: just hold camera so lens opening points down so no gunk falls in. Erase lightly. I used a lens cloth and dabbed at the contacts rather than blow them so as not to blow the erasings inside the camera.

I did this to each of my three lenses just to be sure. Lo and behold, it worked good luck have a nice day!!! :) :) :)

What settings should I use for my Nikon d60 with a 70-300mm lens to take picures of a night time football game? When the sun goes down, my camera slows and the pictures get blurry.


Set the ISO as high as it will go and the aperture as low as possible. That is as good as it gets without investing a lot of money in pro cameras and lenses that are needed to shoot action in low light. I have a D300 and a 70-200mm f2.8 lens that together cost almost $4000 and it can barely do it. How bad do you want pictures?

Error 99 Code on 5 month old Canon 40D


error 99 can be several things. Try the following. Check that the contacts on the lens housing are clean if not clean them with a swab of denatured alcohol available at walmart. also if there is extremely cold weather your shutter could be creating the error. Try using a blow dryer and on the warm setting warm up the camera with the lens off. Blow around the mirror area. I know it sounds silly but it has worked in the past. Good luck.
