Took pictures at my GD volleyball game. Had a blast. I just don't have a fast enough lens so I upped the iso as high as I dared (although I might dare a little more tomorrow cuz there is another game). Just couldn't get the ball stopped. It was fun and they lost but I thought the pictures look like she played a heck of a game!!

This wasn't part of the assignment, but.... If you use PS you might want to try using the lens blur filter on some of these shots especially to eliminate things like the How to use the bathroom poster. Also if you open the lens up your speed will go up and your DOF will go down and you won't need the lens blur.

The answer is yes, but at that distance you will still get decent DOF. Right now you're getting more than you want. Try some practice shots to get a feel.

Shooting wide open isolates the subject from the background, which in my opinion gives an image more impact... The amount that is in focus depends on the focal length of the lens, the aperture used, the distance from the subject and the cameras sensor size... If you need a rough guide to how much will be in focus, use one of the many online DOF calculators and jot down the results as a guide...

I've shot volleyball tourneys and those indoor/gym ones normally have VERY BAD lighting so it is no wonder you had to shoot at 1600 ISO. Shooting wide open leads to more blur without flash but sometimes you dont have a choice - nice job in a tough environment!

Nice go at this Chance. The only other thing I could add is try to bring the ball into the shot. Papers I work for drills that into all the togs. They want a connection between the player and the ball like what I've submitted. Hope this helps. Good job Chance.
