    Agree, nice photo. Where were you when you took this photo? What made you use an f/18? Was the camera set to priority? Don't you want a larger aperture for action shots?

    Um well if you noticed cincy he was using ISO 500, with a shutterspeed of 1/400th. So 1/400th is way fast enough to stop this action, and for f/18 is probably the correct setting to use.

    My questions were simply for my own knowledge not to question his skills. The photo is great.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    For action, I tend to use Shutter Priority, especially since I am usually panning fast moving objects (which are also much faster and smaller than the truck in the photo). This allows me to slow down the shutter just enough to show some motion--in this case, wheel and tire spin--and still keep the subject in focus.

    Conequently, the camera takes care of the Aperture setting in Shutter Priority, which is nice since I am usually "zooming in and out" with a handheld 70-200VR over a course with variable lighting conditions. Some people I do know sit and wait at one particular spot with the focus lock set. However, I get bored and at this particular race, I took photos from the same vantage point of three different areas of the course simply because I wanted to take photos instead of wait--that is until the sun got too low and the trucks were landing with me directly facing the sun. Basically, I almost made a horseshoe of shots from various distances under different lighting conditions since the trucks were various distances and the sun was at different angles. Normally, I would have moved around, but this was a last minute thing and I wasn't at the race that long.

    If it would have been cloudy outside that day, I would have probably increased the shutter speed and possibly the ISO, which would have lowered the F#. The same as if the sun had started setting more--then I might have eventually been shooting at F/2.8. The amount of zoom used also has an effect.

    Higher S# (Faster Shutter Speed)--(too high will FREEZE, not show motion),
    -Decreases Depth of Field,
    -Lowers F# (widens aperture).

    Higher F# (narrower aperture),
    -Increases DOF,
    -Slows shutter speed.

    Higher ISO = More grain.

    A couple more examples:

    Unlike some real photographers here, I don't know wtf I am doing. But I try. I ended up taking this picture at a random 1930s nostalgia village about 2 miles from my house, tucked away back on some road. Anywho, this little fella sat next to the stove at the general store. Still, no skill required here, but I thought it had good context. Its not as exciting as super trucks flying through the air but I like it.
