The purpose of this assignment was to capture clean, crisp stop action photos by using a fast enough shutter speed.
In all honesty, my successful stop action photos up to this point have been rendered without full appreciation for understanding the mechanics for how to effectively allow enough light into the camera. I would self-critique by noting a tendency to have at least one of the three exposure triangle settings incorrect. By shooting in Manual Mode, I am more clearly understanding the exposure triangle. By the end of this course I know I will rely far less on post processing. And… I will probably not rely so much on Aperture Mode as I have to this point.
