We had an ice skating competition on and I decided to see if I could get some pictures to share. Once again, it is something I had never tried to do before but wanted to see what they would come out like.
1. The fast and unpredicatable movement of the subjects.
2. The very low light in the building.
3. Not being allowed to use a flash for 2 reasons: (A) the distance from the subjects was too far and would not reach them and (B) the flash would have in anycase broken their concentration and it was a competition after all.
4. Not being able to set a specific distance to have them in focus.
WOW!! What a task this turned out to be and you can see the awful results. About the only thing I got right was that there is no blur of movement but with using ISO1600, everything is very grainy and the colors are not correct.
