I shot a couple hundred photos of a kid's soccer practice with my XTI yesterday. I was shooting with a Tamron 28-75 lens and tried both the preset "action" mode as well as my trying my hands with about a hundred manual shots. Tried different av, iso, white balance, exposures, and all came out dark and blurry. I know the sun was behind my subjects but it was NOT dark at all compared to how the camera captured it. How can I get my photos to look like "stop action" and brighten them up a bit without post-processing? Also, how can I stay in focus with movement? I used Al Servo for all. This is one example of hundreds that all look about the same. Even the more "close up photos" look (extra) blurry, dark, and ick. Thanks!
