I don't know too much about stop action photography. When I saw the picture, I figured all you really need is a tripod. You don't need a fast lens, since you would be able to talk a long exposure, shutter speed doesn't really matter. And for the pictures, your lens will work, probably better than a fix lens.

 

But, stop action is a differant ball game.


Thanks, Dennis.

WOW, there was a TON of work that went into that video. You're going to need more than a tripod.. (-:}

Ya think??

 

That was done by Pros. I'll definitely be working my way up to that level. A fellow musician works for a company called FM Global where he's a multimedia producer, he'll be helping out. It'll take a long time but I think it'll be worth it.


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.

There is going to be some learning curve for sure. Looks like a worthy challenge to me!
